Malbec Les Camille, Clos Siguier 2017 (Cahors, France)
Cahors Vieilles Vignes "Les Camilles", Clos Siguier 2017 $18 (Southwest) Moving west to the wild hills of Cahors where Cot (aka Malbec) is king and Gilles Bley and his family have been growing and producing wine naturally for generations. This is from a single 80+ year old vineyard with impossible small yields aged in huge old barrels for 2 years, then bottled unfiltered with just a touch of sulfur. Full bodied, but balanced with brambly purple fruit and earthy forest floor notes. You should start looking for Cassoulet recipes now.
