The Cahors region in southwestern France is best known for its red wines, made largely from the local Malbec grape. The wines of Cahors are typically earthy and full-bodied, with firm tannins and high acidity. They can be quite age-worthy, and often improve with a few years of bottle aging.
The history of viticulture in Cahors goes back to the Roman era, when the first vineyards were planted in the area. Since then, the wines of Cahors have been enjoyed by local residents and visitors alike. In recent years, the popularity of Cahors wines has grown exponentially, thanks in part to the "Malbec craze" that has swept the wine world.
Today, the Cahors region is home to over 1,000 wineries, producing a wide range of wines from different grape varieties. Whether you're a fan of red or white wine, there's sure to be a Cahors wine that's perfect for you. So next time you're in the mood for something different, be sure to give one of these delicious wines a try. Of course always enjoyed at the optimal serving temperature!

"Hi l am Wim, sommelier, and wine enthusiast just like you! My fellow sommeliers understand the importance of serving wine at the correct temperature. They know that if wine is too warm, it will lose its flavors and complexities, and if wine is served too cold, it will numb your taste buds. A few world renown sommeliers and myself will explain this further, and share some interesting (taste) case studies."
