2002 Rigal Chateau de Grezels Prestige Cahors
I see so much Argentinian Malbec come and go that I had kinda forgotten about the true home of Malbec: Cahors. This region in France, nearish to Bordeaux, produces killer wines that are usually about 15 bucks. They are agers with some grip, usually blended with a bit of Merlot. (This one is 70/30 Malbec/Merlot). I think these are incredible bargains to stock up on and cellar.
And I’ll bet dollars to donuts that this wine drinks better tomorrow than today; I’m going to have to show some restraint here and make sure I have some leftover. (That’s why I keep cheap beer in the fridge; tallboys rule!)
