This superb wine is a typical Cahors blend of 85% Cot (Malbec) and 15% Merlot, and is aged in oak barrels to soften the tannins and to give complexity.

The vines, including some very old Malbec, are planted in clay-limestone soil which helps to keep yields naturally low. Fermentation is controlled to 30 degrees with maceration on the skins from 2 - 3 weeks, including frequent pumping over and aeration. The wine is then aged for one year in wood, 30% of which are new barrels. It's only lightly filtered before bottling to preserve fruit quality and character.

Drink with red meats or pork in wine, cream or even peppercorn sauces and game, but also mature hard cheeses go nicely too.
