for this region?


Cahors is an appellation in the southwest of France. The main grape variety used is Malbec, with up to 30 percent of Merlot and Tannat permitted. The region has a long history; it was once known as the “black wine” of Lot because of its inky color. After a period of decline,there has been a resurgence of interest in Cahors due to Malbec’s popularity in Argentina. Because they are comparatively unknown and often very good, these wines represent great value. Some are capable of very long aging.

  • Me either but Stephen has a point. A lot of the 1997 Napa wines didn't fare ... ... I'm drinking a 1999 Cahors at the moment and it's pretty great. Says 12.5. Mostly Cot with a good splash of Merlot. Retained a lot of acidity but added some complexity from the maturing process.I liked it less when it was young.Thanks for posting those JD.&nbs Read More

  • Domaine du Theron Malbec Cahors 2011


    Dark and smoky red fruit aromas with minerality and salinity on the nose. Refreshing in the mouth, this shows good blueberry, cranberry and raspberry fruit notes with tart medicine notes and a stony almost briny finish with notes of earth, tar and leather. Read More

    Wine review by Snooth Editorial

  • There are about 60000 hectares in the Cahors AOC region. I live near Cahors and can thoroughly recommend the original Malbec wines. Try, if you can find it, Chateau Chambert, my tip to be the finest wine in the area within the next 5 years. Stéphane Derenoncourt from Bordeaux is advising this chateau at the moment. The owner has/had a successfu...
