Cahors is a wine appellation in the South West France region of France known for its gutsy, inky red wines crafted from some 4000 hectares of vines. The area forms an arc around the city of Cahors and runs along both banks of the Lot River. It was granted AC status in 1971
The wine is made from Malbec (known locally as Cot) which must comprise 70% of the wine. The Malbec can be supplemented by Merlot and the robust, hardy and quite tannic Tannat grape.
Look for the wines from Chateau St Didier Parnac and Clos Triguedina.
