Discover Cahors: The Authentic Heart of French Malbec - Where Tradition Meets Elegance in Every Glass


Last updated: February 21, 2024


On the banks of the River Lot, the dynamic city of Cahors reveals a long-cherished secret. It is home to France’s last true bastion of the Malbec grape, a variety that has become widely associated with the valleys and mountains of Argentina. Yet there is much to recommend in French Côt: it offers chameleon-style ranges that encompass the deeply traditional wines of Clos de Gamot, the silky richness of Château du Cedre and Lamartine, and everything in between! The finest Cahors is comparable (in quality) to the greatest Malbec wines made across the Atlantic, yet there are significant differences in structure, aromatic profile, and mouthfeel. So much the better for oenophiles who love diversity.
