Château Les Croisille

Silice Cahors Malbec 2019

New wave of Cahors. A good volume due to the very greedy type of grape variety that is Malbec. Black fruits, marked and stretched mineral notes, soft and loose tannins. Balanced tasting. Great drinkability for its price range.

Cahors nouveau style. Sur la fraîcheur et le fuit. Beau volume dû au cépage au combien gourmand qu’est le Malbec. Fruits noirs, notes minérales marquées et tendues, tanins souples et amples. Dégustation équilibrée. Superbe buvabilité pour sa gamme de prix.

Clos Siguier

Cahors Malbec 2017

Had conjointly with a Poesia Malbec, so Interesting to contrast Malbecs made in different hemispheres- this had the juicier mid palate compared to the Mendoza expression-at 12% absolutely charming. Crushed red fruits, bay leaf. — a day ago

Domaine Le Roc

Cuvée Don Quichotte Fronton 2015

Forgotten bottle at my in laws. What a good surprise! Didn't know I had left it there 🤷🏻‍♂️.
This is again a very biaised review as this comes from a vineyard located 10 miles away from where I grew up. A blend of negrette and syrah.
There is a strong violet, blackberry, irony, pepper nose. Very inviting. The palate is very much defined by its acid backbone and its vibrant blackberry and cherry note. There is a huge tannins wall in the middle here, drying up everything in its wake but making way to a fruity, peppery finish with a fruity twist. Huge wine for less than 10 euros

Château Barouillet

Bergerac Blanc Sec Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2019

Natural Southwest French white blend for under 15$-Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, semillion & Chenin Blanc. I don’t like Alsatian blends but this I do: like a rich Muscadet. Floral but not heavy on the Sauvignon Blanc, balanced. Celebration of lifting of Covid restrictions in New York State, with friends on the Hudson — 6 days ago

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. — 2 days ago

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