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.

  • Prieure de Cenac Cahors 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I'm writing this a day later, after the fact, however, I can conclusively say this was a satisfying & rewarding purchase. Not much of a nose here, but completely makes up for it with a nice, well-rounded body complete with those deep smoky Malbec flavors but balanced by the Merlot nicely, & includes a hint of minerality. Elegant dryness covers y... Read More

    Many on other sites say this wine is over the hill and Wine Spectator said best by 2010 ... I drinking this in July 2012. Still nice lively garnet color ... not much fruit left on the tongue but plenty on the nose. This smells like a really sophisticated wine.... taste is less so but still very enjoyable. I you have, drink or hold for another... Read More

  • Château Lagrezette Cahors Ac Mdc 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Earth, wood, cassis and hint of tobacco on the nose, full full body, chewy with juicy tannins, rich plum and cassis, and very pleasant slightly astringent finish, with warm feeling. Overall amazing wine. Read More

  • Gouleyant Cahors 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The French saleswoman made sure to point out to me that malbecs originated in France, and not Argentina! This is a fairly sour and light-bodied malbec, with dashes of sour cherry and raspberry. Pretty good, and better after it breathes some. Read More
