Clos La Coutale Cahors

Malbec, 2018

France Provence & Regional Red

Cahors 75cl

Predominantly Malbec, from the grape's home in France, with 20% Merlot in the blend too. A good example of the French version of the grape now so popular in Argentina. Dense stewed plum and chewy black cherries, some blackberry and blackcurrant too, backed up with dry black pepper and licorice. Tannins are ripe and plentiful and it has a classic old world structure. A bit smokey, with a savoury, herbaceous feel, a bit chewy, yet with a smooth body. Ought to partner some hearty rustic food well, think sausage and casserole with lots of herbs and pepper.
