Product notes

Cahors, the cradle of Malbec

Winemaking notes

Traditional harvest. The grapes are harvested when they are just ripe. They are de-stemmed, crushed and fermented for 6 to 12 days at a temperature maintained at 32 ┬░ C and then pressed gently.

Tasting notes

An expressive nose with blackcurrant notes. On the palate, this malbec is well balanced, with a nice freshness and a very pleasant fruit, reminiscent of plums, berries and a floral note. Its tannins are supple, followed by a long finish.
