Clos la Coutale Malbec Blend Cahors 2009
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. Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 88 points by Fine Wine Review and Wine Spectator, which wrote: 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.
Good every day wine. Won't disappoint.
External Reviews for Clos la Coutale Malbec Blend Cahors
In style, Coutale doesn't make many concessions to Malbec tannins. What you get is an impressively structured, firmly tannic wine, packed also with black fruits. The solid structure and the weight of fruit demand aging for at least 5 years. - R.V. Wine Enthusiast. A Proprietary Blend wine from S W France in France. 2009 Clos la Coutale Cahors 750ml
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.
