As always, one of our favourite Cahors. The 2009 Particuliere benefits from the vintage's ripeness and has rich, sweet black fruit in abundance but it is more the texture that appeals at this time: full, rounded mouthfeel and smooth tannins which make this approachable already although a couple more years should flesh it out nicely.
2013 to 2020
Malbec with 10% Tannat (40-55 years old vines)
Traditional vinification in steel tanks for 30 days with temperature control and traditional punch of the cap.
Aged in cement tanks until the following spring. For one year 1/3 agess in one-year-old oak barrels and the other 2/3
in two-year-old oak barrels for 12 to 14 months.
"Concentrated hue. Fine floral and fruity nose (violet, blackcurrant, redcurrant…). Full mouthfeel combining power and freshness, refined tannins and wonderful fruit presence. A mouth-coating Cahors in the archetypal style of the appellation." (Gilbert & Gaillard
"A touch of leather and more rustic character her again. A gamy edge, the fruit solid, but not a lot of lift or energy on the nose. Quite firm and juicy, a squirt of lemony acidity and dry tannins just coating the mouth. Needs food for sure, as the savoury appeal is good." 88/100 (Tom Cannavan, wine-pages.com)
