For this cuvée the grapes (70% Auxerrois, 25% Merlot, 5% Tannat) come from three distinct terriors: sandy alluvial soil., chalky clay "graves" and the higher chalky clay causses. The vinification is similiar to that of "Mission" cuvee, but 30% of the wine recieves 12 monthes of aging in oak barriques.

If you've never heard of Cahors, blame it on Bordeaux. Historically, Cahors wine was shipped downstream to its nearest port, Bordeaux-where the local merchants made sure it was taxed into obscurity. This effort from Château La Caminade is a rich, full-bodied wine loaded with smoke, cherry, and anise flavors. Do the right thing and try a wine which has been unjustly stifled for centuries under the shadow of Bordeaux.

Malbec is king in the wild southwest of France, though in Cahors they like to call it Cot. In this case, a blend of 70% Cot, 20% Merlot, and 5% Tannat is aged 18 months, mostly in concrete vats, before bottling. The finished wine is dark and strong, with spice, leather and earth accents pointing up the deep berry flavors.

Tasted blind we were pleasantly surprised and delighted by this deep dark Cahors. A terrific balance between fruit and oak results in notes of dark cherry berry sausage and spices. This French Malbec tastes like a meeting between the structure of Bordeaux and the fruitiness of Syrah. Finishes with serious grip and length.
