Cahors has been a favourite of ours since the beginning of our interest in wine. The Lot, south of the more crowded Dordogne, is both dramatic and scenic – and the vineyards are very evident – along the valley west of the attractive town of Cahors and on the hillsides (causses) north and south of the river. Its wines are very distinctive, based on The Malbec grape – quite different from Bordeaux or the Languedoc. Only red wine, it is traditionally tannic and plummy – probably better with food than by itself. However, recent vintages are succeeding in retaining depth of flavour with some wonderfully smooth attractive tannins. resulting in a wonderfully smooth big mouthful of wine, drinkable young but with good ageing potential.
