Cahors "Patiemment" 2014 - Château Ponzac


A South-West selection would not be complete with the emblematic Cahors appellation, where the Malbec grape is at its best. Château Ponzac is a typical Cahors with a powerful structure and generous flavours of black fruit and cedar wood. Notes of mint and liquorice on the finish refresh this yummy, full-bodied red.

What experts say  
  
 
88/100 "Cahors may be poised to make a comeback. Long-ignored, largely because too many mediocre and rustic wines were being produced, things are beginning to turn around with the more conscientious, younger generation. Fran Kysela has discovered an interesting estate from a family that has been farming this area since the 14th century. The more serious Ponzac I tasted is the 2012 Patiemment, also 100% Malbec, with an inky/blue/purple color displaying gamey notes of roasted meats, smoky barbecue, blueberry, black cherry and blackberry fruit, spice and pepper. This slightly fuller, dry, nicely concentrated red does not reveal any astringency or rusticity. It should drink nicely for 7-8 years." (2012 vintage)
 
  
  90/100 "The middle wine in the trilogy of wines from the Molinié family at Ponzac, this is a ripe wine that has density, some firm tannins and rich black-plum fruit flavors. It is concentrated and firm at first and then fills out with the richness."
