Clos la Coutale Malbec Blend Cahors 2008
88 points Wine Spectator: Offers a fruity aroma, with plenty of snap to the red plum, berry and licorice flavors. Well-balanced and focused, with a finish of dark chocolate. Drink now through 2014. (10/15/10) The blend is 70% Malbec (known locally as Cot), the traditional grape of the region, blended with 15% Merlot which gives finesse and bouquet, and 15% Tannat which gives it its aging potential. A well-contructed wine with astonishing elegance and red fruit with spicy overtones. This wine accompanies duck, red meat and tasty cheeses perfectly.
Dark purple with a strong aroma berry - pepper oak tastes mixed with red fruit - very enjoyable
Appearance is dark ruby with a slight brick color to the rim. The nose is dark cherries with a hint of plum. Flavor is dark cherries, blueberries, pepper and a bit of tobacco. Overall a beautiful and elegant wine.
Great smooth, flavorful red wine
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Clos la Coutale Malbec Blend Cahors
Astonishing elegance, red fruit with spicy overtones. A well-constructed wine. Clos La Coutale can be drunk young thanks to its good fruit, but has great aging potential, between 10-20 years.
