This is a cracker with saturated plum and damson fruits, some nice tension, richness and balance with floral touches and then a hint of dark toffee on the finish. Drinking range: 2019 - 2020 L&S (Apr 2019)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The grapes come from an old plot in Cahors, but the producer declassifies the wine so as to have more freedom in its making. Remarkably adroit and stylish; smells of violets with a touch of earth.Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph(Mar 2019)
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 quartet of very typical Mendoza Malbecs, including one from master wine maker Nicolas Catena with his slightly more subtle take on pure Malbec. 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 brace of fine examples.
