Cahors, Southwest France

Château Haut-Monplaisir

Tradition Cahors Malbec 2018

Wow superb Cahors. More of that! Blackberry and a milky touch on the nose. Very easy going palate with a great balance. Some tannins to kick things up in the rear, a chocolate, coffee touch in the end. Great value! — 20 days ago

La Folle Noire d'Ambat Fronton Negrette 2019

First day of summer holidays, it's pouring, it's cold, it's humid... But there's good wine so we are good.
Nose of violet, red and black currants, a bit of hay too. It's very welcoming as always. The palate is well balanced with red and black forest fruits, a nice width, a velvety mouthfeel until a mid palate with a tiny bit of drying tannins that power up a long fruity and delicious finish. Very biased here, but I love it

Chateau Lamagdelaine Noire

Cahors Malbec 2016

I don’t think I have ever had a Malbec from France. It made a statement! Crisp, sharp tannins submerged in dark extracts of pipe tobacco, cassis, dark cherry and unripe blue berries. Strong backbone with vibrant acidity. We started sipping it late at night and it evolved from an intriguing brass quartet to a full blown symphony with huge drums, trumpets, and double bass. — a month ago

I loved the hint of floral on this. Excellent wine to drink in its own and savor its flavor

The blood of the land. Or rose made by bleeding tanks destined for red wine production?
Intense pink w a distinct blueish cast. All cucurbit w melon and cucumber, rose hips and plenty of red fruit aromas. The texture here is the outstanding partner it is penetrating, cutting rich foods, but also has a generous, viscous, silky feeling.
