This is truly a great Malbec. Not from Argentina, but from France, this limited edition (small-production), hand-crafted Malbec is a real treat.
Not thick as you may expect from an Argentinian Malbec, Jean Francois Merieau Cot “Cent Visages” Malbec 2010 is modest and dry, with nice acidity and plenty of cranberry and cherry flavors combined with great minerality and smokeyness. While slowly sipping this Malbec, you could almost smell the fields of the vineyards. Great to drink on its own or with some nice cheese or food.
To impress your dinner date, bring a bottle of this Malbec to your BYOB.
Hand-harvested and bottled by Jean Francois Merieau, Loire Valley, France.
