Chateau Haut-Monplaisir "Prestige" Cahors 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Almost black, this Cahors has a great bouquet: fresh red and black fruits, spices (pepper and cinnamon) and hints of well integrated oak wood. The mouth, well structured, is soft and mellow, showing a refreshing acidity that drives the wine towards a long and harmonious, slightly minty finish.

This was a truer expression of the terroir than anything, which is why I like malbec from Cahors. Blackberry, pepper, short bursts of florals as you swirl. The tannic structure is soft, but notiible and is balanced by good acidity. Well done - 90 points - Paul

I bought this wine from Leon Stolarski at www.lsfinewines.co.uk and I paid around £8.It is mainly Malbec with 10-20% Merlot. liked it and I did not think the tannins too strong.This is nothing like a Madiran.It is a smooth and fruity wine In the eighteenth Century officers in the French armed forces were served Cahors at dinner while the other ranks had to make do with mere Bordeaux.I thought Chateau Haut-Monplaisir the equal of a good claret.This is not the only Cahors I have had and it is an Appellation I like.Today Cahors is usually a lot cheaper,or perhaps I should say better value, than Bordeaux

very dark and smooth, cranberry on nose and palate, thick, need to decant, strong flavor, would stand up well to strong foods. Dry and spicy with a hint of cherry.
