2014 Cahors

Clos La Coutale

2014 Cahors Clos La Coutale - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
A stronghold of ancient Rome, the town of Cahors consequently has a long history of viticulture, dating back to around 50 BC. Over the centuries, its notoriously inky red wine enjoyed significant success, thanks to its ability to withstand long shipping journeys to distant markets across Europe. We’re pleased to announce the 2014 from La Coutale has just completed its journey and is now available in our store! The new vintage is remarkably plush, pretty, and easy to swallow—Malbec is indeed capable of elegance over jamminess. No wonder the locals and their loyal clients across the globe have been drinking the stuff for more than two millennia! –Anthony Lynch

About Southwest

Tucked away beneath Bordeaux and buffeted by the Pyrenees to the south, this expansive region of France, commonly known as the Southwest, is home to a diverse number of viticulture and gastronomic traditions as well as cultures. Though Cahors might be the most well known (and easiest to pronounce) appellation from the Southwest, the importance and influence of French Basque culture cannot be underestimated. Irouléguy, the primary appellation of the Basque region of France produces full-bodied, hearty red wines, produced from Tannat grape (known for its tannic qualities). Dry whites from Irouléguy are also produced from Petit and Gros Manseng. Northeast of Irouléguy is the sweet wine-producing appellation of Jurançon. These moelleux wines made from Petit and Gros Manseng have a storied history in France, from being the first wine region to have a vineyard classification, which dates back to the 154th century, to being preferred wine of royalty dating back to the 16th century as well as the French poet Colette.
