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.

    Wine review by BillBull

  • Château de Gaudou Cahors Cuvée Tradition 2006


    Lovely black spice, coal tones greet the nose and offer support to the slightly jammy, smoky cranberry fruit. Nicely balanced and bright with fine focus, if a touch lean across the mid-palate. Right up front there is a touch of wood that integrates well into the dark fruits which inturn are contrasted by a fine mineral note on the moderately lon... Read More

  • Château Haut-Monplaisir Cahors Tradition 2006


    A here-and-now wine (I'm talking about how it reveals itself - nose, mouth - all there in an instant). Heard v. good comments, but it turned out as nothing special to both my wife and me. The nose is supposed to be plum-heavy, but we found it to be... barn yard-like. Read More

  • Clos la Coutale Malbec Cahors France Red Dry 2006


    I like this Malbec at this price point. Blended with 20% Merlot. It's nice when you want something more old world style, and not a fruit bomb from Mendoza. :) Read More

  • Wines tasted for this report:2006 Budini Malbec 85pts2007 Finca Flichman Malbec ... ... France, or on its own in Cahors, Malbec was a challenging grape for these regions. The proclivity to rot and frost left this lowly grape caught between the late springs and damp falls of Maritime France. It is a grape that loves to languish on the vines deep... Read More

    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
