Clos Triguedina Malbec Blend Cahors New Black Wine 2009

Member Review by dmcker:

The manager of the place offered me a taste of the 2000 version of the Clos Triguedina New Black Wine, the 1999 of which I described earlier. It would appear that 2000 was a better vintage than the 1999, because the 2000 was even more massively structured with more smoky fruit on the nose and palate. A most savoury wine with chewily textured tannins. This version of the two (the other being the Prince Probus) from Triguedina is definitely more traditional, aiming at a throwback to the black Cahors malbec of yore, and if you like this grape you should try this wine.

Most recently I've had a couple of bottles of the '99 Clos Triguedina The New Black Wine, AOC Cahors. It's definitely part of the tradition of 'Black Cahors', with a *very* dark color. Dried fruit that's been candied, pureed and made into jam on the nose. Layers within layers. On the palate wild berries, spice, truffles, aromatic herbs. Nicely chewy texture. Obviously laid down in oak at the winery (1/3 new barrels, I believe) so plenty of tannins, and I got the impression the wine would age quite well. The bottles were allowed to breathe for three hours before drinking but still tasted young. The wine paired extremely well with game. Had it once with duck à l’orange, the other time with venison in a Cumberland sauce. Magnifique! I felt the wine would very likely go well with a number of braised red meats, and of course would stand up to even aged cheeses.
