Deep Cuts (Cahors, France)
While Simon Busser is mostly known for his workhorse red table wines made primarily from Côt and Merlot, he’s also been quietly, and like other forward thinking vignerons, experimenting with his own plantings of varietals such as Pinot Noir, Gamay, Trousseau, Chenin Blanc, and even Savagnin, producing small run bottlings in both single varietals and blends. I’m pleased to offer a small selection of a couple of these incredibly striking wines that feel both of the Sud-Ouest, but also of the ether, as well as a collaboration between L’Ostal Levant—an elegant as they come bottling of 100% Cot called Fakir.
