80% Malbec, 15% Merlot with a touch of Tannat makes the blend of this superb Cahors. The 60 hectares have south-west exposure and on the gentle slopes leading away from the river which contain alluvial clay, offering up red fruit notes and softer tannins than the higher plateau sites.
“These days, Malbec is probably best known for producing the purple, violet-scented wines of Mendoza in Argentina, but its spiritual home remains firmly here in south west France. The intensity of the Malbec and the muscle of the Tannat are softened by some plump, juicy Merlot and the result is a delight – full flavoured for sure, but accessible and wonderfully warming” – Wine Spectator – Nov 2014 (2013 review)
