Chateau Du Caillau Cahors Malbec, South West, France

Regular price £11.99

Classy Malbec with subtle dark fruit flavours, demonstrating the classic French style.

Philippe Bernede is a renaissance man whose interests include cooking, aviation and a few inventions. But winegrowing is his passion and it shows in the quality of his Malbec. The domaine has been in his family for generations and is planted with the traditional grape of Cahors: Cot (AKA Malbec). While some continue to make dark tannic wines - the Black Wines of Cahors - Philippe favours more a modern, fruit-forward style. If you think only Argentina can produce amazing Malbec, think again.

Tasting Note: This wine is packed full with flavours of black fruit, cherry and cassis with a subtle smoky nuance. The tannins are firm and ripe, giving the wine great structure. Deep, dark, clear. Quite subtle dark fruit on the nose, touch of sweetness. Good attack, mouthwatering fruit, subtle and pleasing. Tamed tannins and good length. Very nice example of Cahors
