The Château du Caillau Cahors consists of 100% Malbec and is aged half in tanks and half in barriques. Philippe Bernede is aiming for a modern, maybe even tamed Cahors that can be drunk relatively young, but still develops in the bottle for many years. 2020 is considered a great vintage in Cahors, combining power, fullness and ripe tannins.
The Château du Caillau Cahors has a dark ruby-red fullness, the scent is reminiscent of blueberries and cocoa, the tannins are supple, the finish is long-lasting and one always feels like taking another sip. A lot of authentic and regional wine for the money!
We recommend this powerful red wine for dining with red meat, stews and summer barbecues.
