Gérard Bertrand An 1152 Cahors Malbec 2020

Sud de France, FranceThis looks to be the first vintage of Cahors for Gerard Bertrand, which follows his acquisition of Domaine de Cause in 2022. It pours a deep inky purple, offering a combination of sweet blackberry, cassis, and boysenberry alongside anise, dried lavender, and gravel. Cahors can often be more structured and rustic than Argentine Malbec, but this strikes a nice balance between the two, with lush, opulent fruit that is balanced by a gravelly minerality and firm-grained tannins that will reward careful cellaring over the next 3-4 years.Tasted: 14 October 2023Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices:
