Château de Mercuès

Cuvee 6666 Malbec de Cahors 2015

For Malbec World day, here is a nice Malbec from France.

Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.

On the nose, blueberries, blackcurrants, vanilla, earth, chocolates, dust, spices, herbs, vegetables, black pepper, bell pepper, celery and wet leaves.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark coffee, pencil lead, vegetables, black pepper, earth, bacon fat, leather, tobacco and green herbs.

Medium finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a very enjoyable Malbec from Cahors, France. Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel. Nice, and well balanced.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (3 hours).

Already enjoyable, but will be better in the next 10 years.

Earthy with a new world feel, and gets earthier as it opens up. Not what I expected from a Malbec from this region at all.

Thank you, Wendy for sharing.

100% Malbec grapes were aged in French oak barrels for 18 months.

15% alcohol by volume.

Château du Caillau

Cahors Malbec 2016

Full bodied and tanic but with lifted fruit on the nose and pallet. Reminded me in some subtle ways of a fruitier styled Syrah, with some light floral and blue fruit flavors. Better day 2, and could stand to lay down for a couple of years. Not bad! — 9 days ago

Clos Siguier

Cahors Malbec 2015

Soft and graceful with fresh ripe red fruits on the nose. Light and pleasant texture, structure and body. Savory gamy vibes and plenty of acid. Delightful. — 9 days ago

L'Enclos des Braves

Gaillac Duras Blend 2015

Medium- bodied, dark purple. Nose is somewhat funky, not really corresponding with the flavor. Has that gamay profile, but has great depth of flavor, some good tannins, juicyness and and a long finish. Very delicious. Thanks brother! — 17 days ago

Chevalier de Bayard Vin de Pays des Côtes de Gascogne Red Blend 2016

This was given to me from a friend. I like the fruitiness, it’s light bodied and semi dry. Though I like my wine full bodied it’s not bad. I think my friends who like sweet wine would really like this one. — 13 days ago
