Chateau Relais de la Poste, Côtes de Bourg Cuvee Malbec 2012
Malbec may be more instantly associated with parts of the New World these days, but as one of Bordeaux’s six “permitted” red wine grape varieties, its heritage here is lengthy.
Deep ruby in colour this fine Malbec Cuvée has blackberry aromas with toasted wood. On the palette these characteristics are confidently reinforced, where full black fruit tastes are firm but smooth, making this Cuvée the an ideal dining accompaniment or simply highly enjoyable in its own right.
