Category: Medium bodied aged red.
If you like: Aged Barolo or Bordeaux.
Taste like: Great 2005 vintage, deep Malbec wine. Dense even if it is soften by the years, this 13 years old Cahors is looking very elegant and vibrant today. Ripe blackberries, prunes, black cherries, blueberries, this wine has smooth fine tannins, great acidity keeping the wine together. This wine shows both structure and finesse, the lengh is impressive. This is for me another example of Clos de Gamot greatness, a masterpiece.
