Cuvée des Vignes Centenaires Cahors Malbec 1998

9.6

Stunningly deep nose of cassis, tree bark, spice and wild mint. A scene in nature. Plum. Such pure fruit. Also violets. Super floral, but darker flowers. Crushed rocks and wet earth. As classic as it gets. The first growth of Cahors. Palate is silky and textured with amazing depth. Superb sap, power and concentration. Such class and finesse. So refined and elegant. Ripe and substantial tannins and but again so refined. Amazing length. Brilliant wine. Unreal freshness. Sappy and deep. Has the guts to go 35 more years. Profound.

As this opens it gets so velvety, so sappy, so elegant. Just a brilliant bottle.

La Roque Cahors Malbec 2017

Light Malbec with a very intense first impression on the palate ... earthy, dark fruits and beetroot. Exquisite acidity. My perfect pairing to a medium rare steak. Could stay a little longer on the tongue. — 2 hours ago
