Domaine Laffont

Hecate Madiran Tannat 2004

2004 vintage. At the time this estate was owned by Belgian Pierre Speyer who sold it in 2013. Hecate (named after the Goddess of witchcraft and necromancy in Greek mythology) is the top wine of the estate, 100% Tannat from the oldest vines. Smells like vintage port with sweet blackberry fruit and flowers. Powerful, with still a lot of jammy fruit, a shipload of mouth coating but well-integrated tannin and a sweetness that suggests some residual sugar (which maybe keeps the tannins in check). A take no prisoners Madiran that might not be for everyone, but at least it has a strong personality. Abv. 14,5%. — 9 days ago

Solis Cahors Malbec 2018

Pleasantly ripe and lush for Cahors! Still brings some acid on the finish, I’m loving this one with pork chops seasoned with thyme and rosemary — 2 days ago

Domaine de Cause

La Lande Cavagnac Cahors Malbec 2016

Well balanced and very enjoyable especially at the $14 price point. 92pts by WE. I'd say that is the high end of the window for this but definitely a solid 90 given the price point. Definitely worth trying. — 8 days ago

Château Bouscassé

Madiran Tannat Blend 2010

I wine I think @Ryan Colthorp would like, half tannat, half merlot. Great balance with the tannat tannins and the merlot silkiness. Drinking good but structure to age another decade. — a day ago
