 Tasted by StefanAkiko on 9/13/2014 & rated 89 points: Len, rund, ymnig Cot. Perfekt för tidig konsumtion = nu.
Sista flaskan.
Bra njutning! (439 views)
 Tasted by StefanAkiko on 10/18/2012 & rated 89 points: Non-blind. Decanted 6 hrs bf served at La Rochelle, Akasaka.
Impression: one breath short of WOW.
Impenetrably black violet.
Small to medium rubbery nose with Malbec phenotype shining through the veils. On the palate, this is a stern, tannic padwan. Long, dark and fruit driven terroir-iste Malbec with (still?) glitches on the mid-palate. Given the grape, the structure and the good acids, this wine has the stuffing to evolve over the years.
We loved the name of the wine and have one btl left for the future yonder. Maybe I get some more. Great QPR. (wife in accord) (906 views)
 Tasted by OttawaB on 1/14/2011 & rated 88 points: Aged for 18 months in clay terracotta jars.
Colour is a dark vibrant purple. Sediment.
Aroma ... dark fruit, black-cherries, floral notes, earth and coffee.
Flavours .... fresh flavours of cherries and strawberries .......... vibrant. Very smooth and dusty tannins, slightly drying. Spiciness, medium acidity, medium length of finish. Licorice on the finish. Bit of very pleasant bitterness on finish as well.
Very tasty wine .... refreshing. For a young wine , there are elements one would associate with an older wine , and well as a newer wine's fresh fruit flavours. (1356 views)

Cahors

Le Vins de Cahors (L’Union Interprofessionnelle du Vin de Cahors)

The Cahors appellation is located in the département of Lot, which itself lies in the greater region known as Quercy. Sandwiched between the Dordogne and Toulouse, the rolling hills of the area that twist gently along with the River Lot provides the visitor with a fairy tale view around each bend; villages topping the peaks of small hills, blue sky and vine-covered expanses, castles tucked neatly into hillside folds or hanging precariously on the rim of a cliff...it's not surprising that this area attracts huge numbers of tourists and foreigners looking to buy retirement homes abroad! The Cahors vineyards date back to the Roman occupation, making them among the oldest in France.
