This wine, the domaine’s classic, is 80% Malbec and 20% Merlot. Grapes are destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks, then the wine is aged in these same stainless steel tanks. It then spends 18 months in demi-muid barrels and is very lightly filtered before being bottled.
Deep ruby-colored. Powerful, forthcoming and concentrated nose, with good depth of blackberry-scented fruit along with anise. Light tannins are well integrated in the wine's medium-to-full bodied texture.
Malbec is a red grape also known as Cot and Auxerrois. Wines carrying the Cahors appelation must be made with 70% Malbec, making it the grape of Cahors. Once used as the backbone for many Bordeaux wines, this thick-skinned, late-ripening grape produces deeply colored wines like its cousinTannat. Malbec is grown widely in Argentina and in small quantities in California. Importer Notes
