Appellation: AOC Cahors (South-West France region)

 

Grape: Malbec (100%)

 

Farming: Organic (not certified)

 

Aromatics: Prune, dried raisins, mint, dry flower and subtle earthiness.

 

Palate: An outstanding wine showing plenty of vibrancy still for its age. Acidity and oak balance well maintained. Old vintages from Gamot are bucket list wines. We are very fortunate we have tried a few old vintages and we remain amazed by the ability of Clos de Gamot wines to age and transform over the years.

 

About the wine: From a winemaking perspective, grapes are sorted when they join the cellar. Each plot is vinified separately, with gentle pumping over to keep a harmonious structure. Wine is aged for 18 to 24 months in old oak pungent with 40 years old foudre (70hl and 100hl).

 

When to drink: Drink now or in the 40-50 years after vintage.

 

Service: 16 degrees C.

 

Food match: Perfect shared with wine lovers and a meal topped with black truffle.
