Chateau de Gaudou Cahors "Tradition" 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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 long finish. 88pts

The Cahors vineyards, approx 4000 hectares superbly isolated, at a equal distance between the Atlantic, the Pyrenees, and the Mediterranean, a breathtaking valley that follows the curves of the winding Lot river 2000 years of rich history of the wine of Cahors which obtained the distinction A.O.C 30 years ago. The most beautiful hillsides gently attracting the sun which enable the sloping vineyard to drink in the sunshine and embracing the grapes with its warmth. Read less

A blend of Malbec, Merlot and Tannat grapes. from southwest France, the Cahors region has a reputation for its "black wines". This wine is the most complex I have ever had. It needs breathing or decanting to release it's full potential. Dark purple almost black color, aromatic of currant and coconut on the smell finish. Cherry, extreme pepper and toasty beefy taste. This is a wine for sipping, not drinking as it is very concentrated. Tannins vibrant with a long finish. This wine will age well and I'm sure if it were cellared it would be even better 5 years from now.
