Appellation: AOC Cahors (South-West France region)

 

Grapes: Malbec (100%)

 

Farming: Organic (not certified)

 

Aromatics: Vibrant black fruits, prunes and blackberries with a subtle earthiness. A complex mix of fruits and notes from ageing in old oak.

 

Palate: A medium bodied red with beautiful purity, delicate brightness and elegance. Delicious, yet complex wine with a lively and long finish. This is a special wine, with a lot of soul.

 

About the wine: From a winemaking perspective, grapes are sorted when they join the cellar. Each plot is vinified separately, with gentle pumping over to keep a harmonious structure. Wine is aged for 18 to 24 months in old oak pungent with 40 years old foudre (70hl and 100hl).

 

When to drink: Now or in the next 6-10 years.

 

Service: 15 - 16 degrees C. Cabernet glass. Decant for 30 min when drinking in its youth.

 

Food match: Grilled red meats, especially duck.
