Colour and Flavours

Typical aromas of blackberry and black cherry fruit. It can produce young wines of good value, but equally well it can make elegant and soft wines when it is allowed to mature. When young, it is very potent indeed, with powerful flavours and strong tannins. The colour remains a deep red.

Synonyms

Côt or Cot; Auxerrois (in Cahors) and Pressac (Bordeaux Right Bank name).
