Community Tasting Notes (1)

  • Very odd and surprising wine. Not black, despite the name. Dark though. No decant. Uplifting and very fresh bouquet of ripe fruit. Damsons. Lovely. Palate nicely in balance. Not over-big, sweet, burned or in the slightest confected. Less tannic than I associate with Cahors in fact. Silky and quite lush. But on the other hand very slow and very diffident about its nature. Rather quickly retreats into itself somewhat, suggesting this is too young now. It seems to have less potential for great age than regular top Cahors, but we're probably still talking 10-15 years of age before this opens up and shows itself off properly.

    Rather impressed. I was expecting something more of a novelty, overdone and extreme. This is gracious and fresh-richly fruited. But not scored for now nonetheless.

    (Clos Triguedina The New Black Wine) 100% Malbec. After being hand-picked and -sorted, the grapes are heated to further concentrate the sugars. The color of this limited-production bottling is unmistakably black; the nose displays dried fruit and licorice. Possibly the most complex wine made in Cahors, it’s not jammy, but jam-packed with intense dark fruit, well-structured tannins, and vibrant acidity.
    Appellation: Cahors
