Keep it natural, baby.
Deep purple in the glass with an amethyst rim. Plum, cherry, and blackberry fruit with cool black tea notes dominate the nose. A fruit-driven palate follows and is backed by pounded stones. This medium-bodied red has great minerality, moderate acidity and finishes with silken tannins.
Gilles Bley knows the history of Cahors and can trace his winegrowing roots in the AOC back for many generations. His intimate understanding of the Malbec (Côt) and Tannat vines on his 15 hectare estate led to a desire to create wine that highlights this storied region’s unheard of potential for delicacy. Cahors is traditionally known for it’s heavy and brooding black wines that take years to reveal any fruit. Giles Bley’s efforts at Clos Siguier have a bit more in common with the Malbec grown in Argentina’s Mendoza than what you would normally expect from this AOC. This is a surprisingly bright and youthful Cahors with depth of red and black fruit, subtle terroir and silken tannins. Clos Siguier is a lighter styled, readily accessible Cahors with its roots firmly planted in organic winemaking traditions.
