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.

  • Château la Coustarelle Cahors Grande Cuvée Prestige 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Very smooth and dark, with a fair amount of tannins, but well balanced. Medium body, not much on the nose. The blend is 90% Malbec and 10% Tannat. The color is deep. Read More

  • Clos Triguedina Cahors 2000

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is like a favourite weeks holiday in the south of France a few years ago, but distilled in a bottle, totally off the beaten track, cheap, and "just perfect", not through arduous planning, but because all the right circumstances came together... uncork for an olfactory assault - not the most sophisticated, but far better than some of th...

  • Château du Cèdre Malbec Blend Cahors le Prestige 2004

    Snoothrank:

    In need of a decanter or simply a few hours with the cork popped, this wine gets better with every sip. Dark, lush colors lead to big bold fruit and tannins that overwhelm at first, but are necessary in the further development of the wine once it's open. Will compete with any of your finest 30-40 California "big boy" cabs. Read More

    Beautifully smooth Cahors Malbec! Not quite as big and full as Chateau de Cedre, but very good in its own right. Read More

  • Clos Triguedina Cahors 2001

    Snoothrank:

    I just had a bottle from my cellar and it is drinking beautifully. BUT it still has time to cellar even more. This wine is BIG. Well balanced fruit with plenty of great tannic structure.Give a few more years to develop even more. Read More
