Jean-Luc Baldes Cahors The New Black Wine 2013

75cl

The name originates from Middle Ages when the winegrowers of the Lot produced Vin Noir or Black Wine by heating part of the grapes. This wine was favoured by the English Royal Courts. As a revival of this medieval practice, Jean-Luc Baldès brings back the splendour of this long-forgotten taste by using a prune oven to gently heat the must—a winemaking process which has not been used for centuries.
