Malbec Cahors Clos du Colombier AOC 2016


Malbec Cahors Clos du Colombier AOC 2016

Domaine de Lavaur South West France

Fullness and finesse. Well balanced, juicy blackberries and ripe blueberries with nutmeg, cinnamon and clove aromas and a liquorice finish.

Deep purple in colour, if not quite the famous ‘black wine’ of old, this version of Cahors has a complex aroma of damson, dark plums and hints of mushrooms, plus some rounder vanillin notes from the oak ageing. On the palate, it’s full, satisfying rather than heavy (13%), with a complex palate and a smooth finish. In many ways it has more in common with a New World Malbec in its fruit character and polish but it also has an interesting subtlety and complexity typical of the better French reds. It’s a wine for roast meats, cassoulet, venison and mature cheeses.
