Cahors, L'Origine

Cahors, L'Origine

Ref: A0637214

A big, deeply coloured red with lots of fruit and well balanced tannins.

Situated in the commune of Prayssac, in the central region of Cahors, the Pontié family’s estate covers 32 hectares in prime sites on the steep terraces above the river Lot, planted on meagre sandy/gravelly soil.

75% of the vines planted are Malbec (locally known as the Auxerrois) with the rest being Merlot (22%) and Tannat (3%). Philippe Pontié is a big exponent of minimal chemical interference in the vineyard and allows grass to grow amongst the vines so as to use no herbicides. (2012 13.0%)

Traditionally fermented for 14-16 days, The Origine is 80% Malbec, 20% Merlot, and is fruity and well balanced. The original cuvée of the Chateau.

Jim Budd "another good vintage from this far flung part of the Loire".
Bright raspberry flavours on the palate with an underlying complexity makes this an outstanding wine
