Taste Flavor
info

Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity

Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

Crafted by Didier Pelvillain, the skilled winemaker, the vineyards at Cahors thrive in the single parcel "Inspiration 7.9," overlooking the Lot River. Planted 32 years ago by Didier's mother, Odile Delpon, the vines exclusively yield Malbec, with an output of about 50 hectoliters per hectare. Encompassing 52 hectares in Albas and Preyssac, the estate, managed sustainably by Didier, is undergoing biodynamic conversion. With a commitment to minimal intervention, only indigenous yeasts are employed. Once renowned for its 'black wine,' Cahors has embraced a quality-driven approach under Didier's stewardship, resulting in a refined, floral, and savory wine with dark plum fruit, minerality, and a peppery finish.
