Most Malbec at this price tastes constructed. Do you know what I mean? When you go to a restaurant and there’s a choice of wines above the house wine that are usually Merlot, Montepulciano, Pinot Noir, Rioja, Malbec, varying from £22 to £32, but they all taste more or less the same, that makes you wish you’d stuck with your aperol spritz.


Tasting Notes

As you’d expect from a producer that used the late winemaker of Mouton-Rothschild, Bertrand Bourdil, in its early years, this Malbec is markedly different. It has lovely pure fruit, and a juice that floats on the palate. It's more elegant that most Malbec, and not quite as rich, with flavours of plum and cherry, and a tiny lick of fine oak, with even a hint of Bordeaux about it. The comes from the freshness from the exceptionally high altitude - 3330 feet - where the nights can be 45F less than the day. It’s exceptionally gluggable but fine at the same time.
