Cahors "Les Peyrières" Malbec, Chateau Ponzac 2020
Chateau Ponzac , Cahors
Chateau Ponzac covers 28 hectares of vineyards in the Cahors appellation, with vines that are 25-years-old on average. They produce Malbec and Merlot. Matthieu and Virginia are assisted in the vineyard and the cellar by Pascal Verhaeghe of Château du Cèdre, one of the leading estates in the Cahors appellation. Pascale helps them finetune the vinification & ageing of their wines.
The wine is produced from vineyards planted on a mineral and fresh terroir - the chalky plateau of Carnac - which produces unique wines.
Finesse on the nose and on the palate. Its deep ruby color gives way to a mouth with melted tannins, the fruit aromas are rich and stewed with notes of blackcurrant, blackberry and cherry.
Grapes: 100% Malbec (Côt Noir)
