Most people tend to think of Malbec as an Argentinian grape variety but actually its more deep-rooted in the Lot and Cahors is its spiritual home. There are quite a lot of prestigious Chateaux in Bordeaux that have Malbec in their assemblage too.

The trouble was, with the old traditional wine making, the wine was really thick and tannic and took ages to soften. 

Low yielding, old vines with minimum pest control, produce outstanding healthy grapes. The wine is then aged for one year in oak barrels, 20% of which are new barrels. It's only lightly filtered before bottling to preserve fruit quality and character. Intense cherry fruit, blackcurrant and lots of spicy oak. Characterful and complex with a moreish balance of attractive chalky tannins and acidity.
