Must-try Cahors: 2014 Causse du Theron, Terrasse


I grabbed the bottle of 2014 Causse du Theron, Terrasse, Cahors with the wines of Château Combel-la-Serre in mind. In other words, I was looking for an unusual, more elegant Cahors.  Last night I opened my bottle to significant surprise.  This wine is the collaborative result of the team from Altos Las Hormigas in Argentina and Métairie Grande du Théron in Cahors.  There were comparisons to Burgundy when the Hormigas team tasted the 2014 tank samples and I can see why.  This particular bottle has the firm fruit of Cahors but surrounding it are lifted earth notes and ethereal ripeness. How cool!  This is the first vintage from this collaborative effort and with a price of only $13 at MacArthur Beverages, you should grab several bottles and look out for future vintages.

2014 Causse du Theron, Terrasse, Cahors – $13
Imported by Altos Las Hormigas USA.  This wine is 100% Malbec. Alcohol 13%.  Earthy, mineral, black fruit immediately comes out with watering acidity through the finish.  The fruit flavor is firm but the earth is light and expansive with an ethereal ripe quality in the aftertaste.  With air it becomes a touch floral with a note of hard candy like pastilles.  Unique and quite good.  *** Now – 2023.
