Cahors, Southwest France

Château Haut-Monplaisir

Tradition Cahors Malbec

Vintage 2020 | The Tour de France ended today in… Cahors. This wine is great value, loaded with raspberries and beautiful smell. Easy going taste that I do not expect from Cahors, but it exists. Well done. Paired with braised veal cheek. — 16 days ago

I think they have Rocamadour tomorrow before the Champs finish in Paris the day after.

La Galope

GSM Blend 2020

A daily red for sure,

Smells of violets and cassis
This sensory proves itself again on the palette, and is enriched by dark plum and fig. Easy skin like tannin, and apricot acidity.
Medium weighted, and an easy drinker without being too ‘soft’

L'Incontournable Cuvee Marine Colombard Blend 2020

Fantastically crisp. Works well with the Caribbean spices at this excellent restaurant. The wine has notes of rhubarb and citrus, with aftertaste that lingers. Floral to the nose. — a day ago

Un Peu de Toi, Un Peu De Moi Bergerac Cabernet Franc Merlot 2019

A Bergerac New-Wave, on the fruit, with no or little sulphites added. On the nose, there is a nice concentration of red and black fruits. The cabernet-franc dominates, very well supported by the Merlot. The whole is half-bodied, very fruity on varietal notes, round and enveloping. A nice treat. Very good price/pleasure ratio.

Un Bergerac nouvelle tendance, sur le fruit, avec pas ou peu de sulphites ajoutés. Au nez une belle concentration de fruits rouges et noirs. Le cabernet-franc domine, très bien soutenu par le Merlot. L’ensemble est demi-corsé, très fruité sur les notes variétales, rond et enveloppant, avec de la fraîcheur. Une belle gourmandise. Très bon rapport prix/plaisir.

Albedo blanc Irouléguy Petit Manseng Petit Courbu 2020

Wow. Aromas wild. Smells like Lillet. White peach, apricot, sultry florals and ripe guava. Granny Smith and golden delicious apple on the palate, citrusy acid but without the bitterness of the peel. Rich texture paired with fresh acid and minerality in spades. A little like candy that is totally dry. Huge fan of this. — 16 days ago
