Ponzac Patiemment Cahors 2014

Ponzac Patiemment Cahors 2013 is made from 100% Malbec


Grown on soils of red (irony) clay and limestone, this ambitious Cahors is one of the best example of what can be achieved when working with high precision on the "Causse". It combines the ripeness and the fat of Malbec of the clay based soils and the purity in fruit of the limestone.  


Dark color, almost black as it should be for a ripe and concentrated wine from Malbec. The nose shows notes of fresh black fruit (blackberries) and also some more candied fruit and orange peal. It has also a spicy dimension to it (cinnamon). The texture is dense and velvety but the wine remains crisp and tensed all the way to the finish. Great food wine it will match any grilled meat dishes.

Review:

"A step up both in quality and in price, the 2015 Cahors Patiemment is all Malbec, from clay and limestone soils, that was brought up mostly in tank, with 15% in oak. More balanced than the Maintenant release, with notes of blueberries, chocolate, crushed rocks, and hints of graphite, it’s medium to full-bodied, rounded, layered, and textured on the palate. It's a beautiful wine and I'd pay the uptick in price."

Ponzac Maintenant Cahors 2015

Ponzac Maintenant Cahors is made from 100% Malbec


Unoaked, this wine is typical of Cahors from the Plateau the "Causse" as they call it here. The climate here is much more severe and continental than in the valley of the Lot where most of the Cahors are grown. The grapes for this wine are grown on soils rich in limestone. This explains the purity of the aromas and the fruit.
Dark color with violet reflection. The nose exhibits fresh notes of violet and blackberries that are typical characteristics of wines made from Malbec in the Cahors district. On the palate, the fruit is very obvious (again blackberries and dark cherries). The wine is very tensed and long. Despite the hot vintage, it is extremely fresh and lively. A great wine to sip away with some cold meat or just a nice pasta dish with tomatoes.

Ponzac Maintenant ou Jamais Cahors 2018

Ponzac Maintenant ou Jamais Cahors is made from 100 percent Malbec.

A deep red color, lots of red fruit aromas on the nose with hints of plum. On the palate, it is smooth with blackcurrant flavors, rounded tannins and just a touch of acidity.

Excelent as an aperitif or paired with cheese, cooked and grilled meat.

Ponzac Malbec Cahors 2018

Ponzac Malbec Cahors is made from 100 percent Malbec.

The wine is produced from vineyards planted on a mineral and fresh terroir - the chalky plateau of Carnac - which produces unique wines.
The nose shows notes of fresh black fruits (blackberries) with candied fruits and spices. The texture is dense and velvety and the wine is crisp and tense all the way to the finish.

This wine will pair very well with beef tartare, meat in sauce, curries and grilled meat.

Review:

"A finely balanced, rich wine, this both dense and elegant. Spice and a dry core of tannins are both very much in evidence at this stage, although both will soften in time. It has power and concentration, and aging potential. Drink from 2022. - ROGER VOSS"
