Item Description

"Though inky black, this is not the ferocious Cahors of legend (and fact), but an earthy, accessible wine that will give you a sense of malbec from southwestern France rather than Argentina. What’s the difference? Less soft, sweet fruit, more structure, restraint and nuance. Serve this with fatty meats on a cold, rainy day."~ Eric Asimov, The New York Times

"Clos La Coutale is one of the oldest and finest producers in Cahors and their wines convey a wonderful sense of elegance. A blend of Malbec and Merlot that is aged in oak barrels to obtain a full balance between tannins and fruit, this Cahors Malbec is a hearty, rustic red and has everything a savvy red wine drinker wants. Though it is ready for immediate consumption, it has the structure to age, and is a great value."

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.
