From a knockout vintage in France comes this deep, brooding red. It's an intense puppy, and shows bucket loads of black and blue fruits on the nose intermingled with smells of baked spices and florals. The palate is full-bodied and lush, with a tight talcy tannins, balanced acidity, and a long fruit and toast finish. it has the legs to cellar for a few years, but give it some air and it will be good to go with BBQ meats.
From the exceptional vintage of 2005, this is textbook Cahors Malbec. Inky purple colour. On the nose blackcurrent, truffles, violets. On the palate lovely blackcurrent and plum fruit, spice and minerals.
Beautifully balanced, mid-weight, with fine chalky tannins, great structure and balance, long and satisfying.
Could be cellared for several years but enjoy now with red meats, white meats, cheese and indeed a range of dishes.
