CEDRE HERITAGE CAHORS MALBEC 2009

Languedoc - France
750mL

Notes

Sometimes I like malbec, sometimes I don't so much. Fickle variety. Can be huge, can be viscous, can show structural tannin, can be elegant. Often don't know which way to look. Generally like Cahors over Mendoza. The big two. It's also interestingly enough known as 'Cot' in Cahors at times. I didn't know that until today. This goes 80% into tank, 20% in used oak and is sourced from two separate 'climates' of different soil profile – one for muscularity and weight, the other for tannin profile. Deep red garnet colour with aromas of cut flowers, sultanas, mahogany and earth. Vibrant light-to-medium-bodied fruit forward personality, big and washy, expressive red/black berry flavours with a menthol lick and undergrowth herbal notes. Long, bright fruit finish with gravelly but marginal tannins giving oomph and savoury hit. Delicious!
