Few of France’s great terroirs are as overlooked and as undervalued as Cahors, so our judges were happy to find a small set of wines from this beautiful, remote zone on the river Lot to scrutinise for our Best In Show selection. This was the one which stood out. It’s a saturated, dense black-purple in colour -- perhaps the most deeply coloured wine in our top 50, and a swirl leaves streaks on the glass. Fresh, vibrant tea-leaf and rose scents betray its Malbec origins, and there is ample green-pepper freshness in the fruits, too. On the palate, it is bright and high-focus, a wine of great intensity, depth and poise, fine-textured and long. The pristine fruits linger all the way through the finish, and it wears its oak very lightly: propitious vineyards, skilled viticulture and fine winemaking are all in evidence here.
