2009 Château La Coustarelle "Tradition" Cahors

SKU #1125486

Château la Coustarelle is owned by Michel and Nadine Cassot and located in the village of Prayssac, next to the renowned Clos de Gamot. Their 30-year-old vines are planted on slopes that give yields of between 45-50 hl/ha. This blend of 80% Malbec and 20% Merlot (aged in foudre) shows a deep ruby color. Delicate nuances of vanilla on the nose buttresses substantial amounts of lucious fruit. On the palate, this medium to full-bodied red exhibits plenty of ripe blackberry fruit on the palate, along with a hint of licorice. Fine tannin is extremely well-integrated on the finish. Delicious with cassoulet or roast duck! 13% abv.

It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
