So instead of end of summer proclamations, let’s start this week’s review with a brief geography lesson for our friends at Vintages. Cahors is in the Southwest of France, roughly east and a bit south of Bordeaux. It is not anywhere near Burgundy and should not be included in that region. Red wines from Cahors are predominately made with malbec grapes. Red wines from Burgundy, pinot noir! End of lesson.
