 Saveur - Wine from Truffle Country
By vinifying the wine in a friendlier style, local winemakers hope to turn cahors into the next côtes-du-rhône—which was a vin ordinaire until about 25 years ago and then jumped in status to become something approaching fine wine.
Pope John saw to it that cahors became the communion wine of the Avignon church—and may have been responsible for persuading the Russian Orthodox church to adopt it as well, perhaps as a way of solidifying an alliance against Rome.
At the other end of the industry in Cahors are the small growers, often situated close to the banks of the Lot and hence called les pieds à l'eau, or feet in the water.

 Spotlight on the wines of Cahors, Southwestern France
Historically, Cahors had a reputation for producing dark, heavy wines (known as the 'fl wine') that were often used to bolster up less substantial wines from Bordeaux.
Phylloxera in the late 19th century, and then a devastating frost in 1956, decimated the Cahors vineyards, and despite the awarding of the appellation controllée (AC) in 1971, the region has taken quite some time to recover.
Normally, any AC region would have all the land within the boundaries planted with vines, but in the relatively green, pastoral Cahors region the parcels of vineyards are scattered around, and often interplanted with other crops.
