GAUDOU 'EXCEPTION' MALBEC
2016 Fabrice Durou
|Origin||France, Vin de France|
The Durou family make amazing Malbec year in, year out and 2016 is no exception. Yet again this is a bright and softly rich style for Cahors. A lovely intense dark berry fruit, super gloss but great matter too. Balanced and joyous drinking at a very pleasing price. L&S (Dec 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Fabrice Durou heads a family run estate in the ancestral home of Malbec - Cahors in South West France.
Everyone's favourite grape variety, these days, seems to be Malbec. It's easy to see why, especially as the Argentinians have crafted a bright bold and flavoursome style out of the grape variety that Bordeaux forgot. In this case you will find a brace of very typical Mendoza Malbecs, including one from master wine maker Nicolas Catena with his slightly more subtle take on pure Malbec along with his stricter more serious Malbec Cabernet blend. Straddling the continents slightly, there's a bottle of the wonderful Malbec-based blend made at the Cuvelier (of Leoville Poyferre fame) family's Mendoza estate. And whilst Bordeaux may have (mostly) cast off Malbec, it still hangs on in the Cahors region of South West France from where we have included a trio of fine examples.
