The original Malbec! The popularity of Argentinian Malbec owes much to its French relatives.
Elevated to Château status, this is a top notch wine worthy of its awards.
Cahors has been an established winemaking area for centuries and a latin manuscript dating from 1456 shows that the Burc family were already land owners around Cahors at that time. 5th generation vigneron, Jean-Luc Burc now shares the running of this 50 hectare estate near Puy-l'Eveque with his daughters Anne and Emmanuelle. They produce individual and characterful wines from their various vineyard parcels which encompass all the classic terroirs of the region including the renowned terraces of the Lot. The estate is carefully managed according to the principles of lutte raisonneé.
Intense berry fruit with plum, blackberry and lots of spice. Vanilla and soft oak as well as violets and a potpourri character add complexity, which is balanced by gentle tannins. Smooth and sumptuous, this wine expresses the almost tender notes of Malbec. Rural, complex and complete.
Drink with all your favourite winter warmers and comfort food. Try with red meats or pork in wine, cream or even peppercorn sauces, and game. Mature hard cheeses work nicely, too!
Suitable for Vegetarians & Vegans
