2017 Cheateau de Gaudou Cahors "Puro" Malbec, 750ml

Availability: In stock (3)

An incredibly overachieving medium-bodied dry red from Southwest France. Cahors is a small town that is about equidistant from Bordeaux and the Languedoc. It is the origin of the Malbec variety that has come to dominate the Argentine wine scene. In Cahors it's know locally as Côt or Auxerrois, but it is the same boldly flavored, dark fruited and silkily tannic grape. Farmed with pesticides, fermented with native yeasts, and very little use of sulfites.

From the mouth of the importer (Vinotas):

"This wine comes from the domaine's youngest vines: 40+ year old Malbec grown on steep rocky hillsides covered in clay and gravel in the Cahors using environmentally conscious methods. No chemicals are used in the field, grapes are hand-harvested, native yeast fermented in stainless and cement tanks, then bottled unfined and slightly filtered with a drop of SO2 for stability. It exhibits dark yet bright notes of blue and some red fruit on a medium bodied frame, ending with a crisp refreshing finish."
