They’ve been raising quality reds in the chalky clay soils of Cahors since Roman times. The Romans quickly saw that the region’s production surpassed wines they were making in Italy and soon the wines of Cahors were being enjoyed throughout the empire. The region is much older than its famous neighbour, Bordeaux, too. Today, Cahors is still renowned for the quality of its big, rich Malbec reds, the grape that Argentina made famous. But the French are now reclaiming it. They have learnt how to tame the grape’s inherent tannins and bring out its beautiful black fruit. You’ll discover that with this magnificent Malbec, though it's lost none of its ability to age too. After a decade, the wine is drinking perfectly now, especially with duck.
"Dusty black fruit and spice on the nose; lovely black fruits on the palate, earthy and deep"
