This is another great Malbec from France. Not 100% Malbec, but rather a blend of 85% Malbec and 15% Merlot.
The winemaker, Jean-Luc Baldes, has won the best estate and Winemaker in Southwest France award. He has been producing this Malbec, the Triguedina La Chapelle du Clos, for a number of years.
The wine is dark red in color and has dark blackberry fruit flavors that is both smooth and mineral in texture. Great level of acidity and smooth tannins. This Malbec will go well with meat dishes and cheeses, but is also great on its own. It received 88 points from The Wine Enthusiast.
Vinted & bottled by: Chateau Triguedina, Cahors region, France.
