Zette Cahors 2005

Zette is a secondary label of the rather well known Domaine de Lagrézette, owned by luxury goods label Cartier, with wine production overseen by the Rolls-Royce driving Michel Rolland.

This wine is made in a slightly more modern style, entirely tank fermented, but still exhibiting good Cahors character.  Cahors is situated South and East of Bordeaux, on the Garonne river, appellation rules state a minimum of 70% Malbec in the wines.

Wild herb and hints of wild flower around a core of dark damson and spice tinged fruit.  The palate shows a wine of medium weight, concentration with a core of juicy berry and sour cherry fruit.  Good raspy, firm tannin.  Of moderate length, good tannic framework providing the structure.  90 - Good
