Du Cedre ‘Heritage’ Cahors 2009
It was a pretty hard job trying to pick my favourite wine of the week, but this lovely wine won out for its charm and drinkability at the South West France tasting this week. That and the weather has gone cold again!
An entry level red to the wonderful realm of South West France. This wine is from Cahors – one of the best regions you have probably never heard of. For more info on the region and its wines see my blog entry.
Made from mostly Malbec and therefore sporting a fair structure, this wine showed dark fruits, while being light, fresh and a hint herbal. Some grippy fruit tannins were evident with some spice and cardomom notes. A great entry level to the reds of the region for drinking now.
$28ea and worth a lot more!!!!
