REGION: Cahors, France
Emmanuel Rybinski is really one of Cahors' up and coming stars. A very traditional, old-fashioned region that has lost some of its shine due to the rise of other creators of (very different) Malbecs: Argentina. These wines are deﬁnitely overdue a review, though, and praise them for what they do. Rybinski’s approach is to try and cater for the slightly modern by emphasising the fruit, but this is dark, ﬁerce and savoury still.
