Area: AOC Cahors (South-West France region)

 

Grapes: Malbec (100%)

 

Farming: Organic (not certified)

 

Aromatics: Ripe blackberries, prunes, black cherries, blueberries as well as a subtle fresh and vibrant earthiness.

 

Palate: Very elegant and vibrant after years of ageing in bottle. This wine has smooth fine tannins, and great acidity keeping the wine together and allowing it to age still for a few years. This wine shows both structure and finesse, the length is incredible. This is for us another example of Clos de Gamot greatness, a masterpiece.

 

About the wine: 18 to 24 months in old oak pungent, with some 40 years old foudres. The tradition continues, with the focus on bottle maturation remaining. “A wine, like a person,” says Yves, “should have a personal story to tell over time.” These are incredible wines comparable to some of the best old Barolo or Burgundy.

 

When to drink: Drink now or in the next 20-25 years.


Service: 15-16 degrees C. Cabernet glass. No decanting when old.

 

Food match: Black truffle or mushroom dishes, slow cooked game, quail.
