Le Petit Clos Des Vents 2011

87 points

Cotes de Duras. 14%

This appellation is halfway between Bordeaux and Cahors.

It’s a low acid wine with hints of cumquat or orange. Lots of retained CO2. Certainly doesn’t taste like Semillon/Sauvignon, and its hit 14% in a cold vintage. They can also use Ugni Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Muscadelle and Mauzac – so who knows?

Interesting wine. Drink immediately.
