Elegant, beautifully made, yet bursting with dark fruit, including cherries and blackberries, smoky liquorice, lightly oaked with silky tannins. Stunning!

SKU: FC940A Category: Tags: , , ,

The joint owners Hervé Fabre and Pierre Montmayou are Malbec experts in Argentina, and in a glorious twist, have started a new venture in Cahors, just next to Bordeaux. In France, Malbec tends to be seen as a Bordeaux blending grape , in Cahors, its ancestral home, it is up front and centre. In a lovely reverse engineer, all the expertise learnt in that bastion of Malbec, Argentina is being brought to bear in France, and the resultant intensity and depth is breath-taking. Dark, rich and packed with flavour.

International Wine Challenge ‘This is a beautiful example of Cahors with fresh black cherry and blackberry fruit. This is inky and wild with good structure under the flesh.’
