"There is a smooth, polished feel to this balanced wine. Wood and blackberry flavors come together with mint and thyme to make a ready-to-drink wine. The tannins, while firm, are well integrated. Drink now and until 2020."~RV

Clos La Coutale

View all from Clos La Coutale
Deep in the southwest of France, amidst dramatic rock formations and cliffs, the Lot River slowly snakes its way along the valley floor, coiling covetously around the charming town of Cahors. The diversity in architecture serves as a proud historical mark left by many previous generations of inhabitants. Once a former Roman town, Cahors was also as a center of commerce during the Middle Ages that served as an important crossroads for pilgrims on the trail to Santiago de Compostella. Among the many specialties that have brought pride to the region, the constant has been its wine. A.O.C. Cahors is known as the "black wine" of the Southwest--the deeply inky, earthy wines that seem to complement the regional fare of duck (and duck fat!) so wonderfully. Cahors is also the birthplace of Cot, the grape more commonly known as Malbec. The Bernède family is an intricate part of this tradition, watching over one of the region's oldest domaines that was founded before the French Revolution.
