Chateau Lamartine Cahors 2014

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Product information: Varietal/Blend: 90% Malbec, 10% Merlot Farming: Non-certified organic practices Fermentation: Traditional method adopted to temperature- controlled stainless steel tanks Aging: 12-18 months in 70% cement tank, 15% large oak barrels, 15% Bordeaux barrels Alcohol: 13.5 % Soil: 60% clay-limestone, 20% silex clay, 20% limestone Vine Age: 20-35 years old Producer information: Chateau Lamartine was built in 1922 on the site of a century old oak tree. Local legend recounts that in the Middle Ages this was where Martine, the daughter of the local Baron, would meet her various suitors. This family property dates back to the Middle Ages, and the vineyards have survived the Gallo-Roman wars as well the invasion of phylloxera in 1878. Born in the Chateau, the current winemaker/owner, Alain Gayraud, took over from his grandparents in 1975. Encompassing 28 hectares of vines ranging in age from 20 to 120 years old, the Domaine is in the westernmost reaches of the Cahor appellation, making Chateau Lamartine the only Cahors domaine that benefits from the Atlantic influence. The vineyards here dominate the best micro-climate along the Lot River, and all of the plots are south facing on the oldest terraces in the appellation, where the soil is a limestone base with lots of stones.

Bright, mineral burgundy with some tropical fruits in the nose. Good minerality in the mouth. Finish of fruits with a touch of oak.Good acidic attack.

Great Cahors Malbec! Not as dry as Chateau du Cedre, but with more fruit forward taste.

There's a ripe plushness to the dried blackberry, fig and tobacco flavors that lengthen out on the spice-infused midpalate. Baker's chocolate, cream and vanilla notes power the finish. Malbec and Merlot. Drink now through 2019. 4,500 cases made. –KM - Wine Spectator Magazine 90 Points, Top 100 2014

90% Malbec, 10% Merlot- bright red color and a vinous bouquet, slightly influenced by oak and black licorice. Powerful and fat on the palate without being jammy, a certain astringency is perceived on the finish. The Merlot tames the wild Malbec.
