French wine maker, Pierre Gouttenoire, made “black wine” in Cahors. Today you will learn about Malbec from Cahors where the grape comes from.
Contrary to Bordeaux and Burgundy, Cahors is not a region that’s on everybody’s lips. Yet Malbec was born there, and certainly this grape is super well known thanks to the many plantings in Argentina. An inky grape giving origin to a black wine, Cahors AOC, that you should know about.
