This month our French Winophiles group covers Cahors. It’s a singular wine region that works with a singular grape: malbec.
Malbec is situated nicely, I think, in a position to satisfy most wine drinkers. It tastes great with many foods, comes in a range of prices and represents wine regions around the world.
