Tasting note Cour des Dames Malbec
Deep red southern French wine from pure malbec. Seductive and fruity in character with aromas of blackberries and vanilla from oak. Delicious glass to drink, but also great with a barbecue or spicy snacks.
Malbec is extremely popular today. The grape owes this mainly to Argentina, where it is the national pride. Malbec was originally completely French. Its home ports are Bordeaux, Cahors and the Loire, but wine maker Hilde Chevillot from Cour des Dames shows that you can also make delicious red wine in the southern French Languedoc.
This malbec is a beautiful composition of grapes from two different vineyards. The first is characterized by a shallow bottom that heats up quickly due to the presence of 'galets'. These flat, round stones store heat during the day and release it again at night. Here the grapes easily mature, giving the wine a certain sultryness. The second vineyard, on the other hand, has a deeper soil and plantations of some thirty-year-old vines. The concentrated fruit of this place provides more layering and concentration in the wine. After the grapes have been harvested by hand, fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. A small part of the wine then ripens in new oak barrels.
With its smooth fruit, touch of spiciness and full, tempting taste, the Cour des Dames Malbec is a very versatile wine. Smooth enough to drink, but also suitable for various snacks, pizza, pasta or meat dishes. Do not serve it too hot, ideally 16 ° C.
