Tasting note

Cuvée from near Cahors in Quercy in the southwest of France. Dark red to violet. Dark cherries and a smoky bacon note on the nose. But also a delicate freshness reminiscent of mint. In the taste more red cherries and berries as well as a finely dosed spiciness. Quite elegant. Typical for Malbec, it goes well with red meat and hearty dishes. Easily punching above its weight in its price class!

Drink from 2022 through 2027.
