Cahors, Southwest, France
This fresh and fruity Malbec is the result of mindful winemaking from Julien and Sophie Ilbert. Vibrant on the palate, ripening fruits of blackberry, plum, and licorice mingle with subtle spices, violet and woody notes. A smooth texture gives way to structured tannins on the finish. This wine continues to reveal new nuances of aroma and flavor throughout making an exciting pairing to braised leg of lamb, duck confit and braised short ribs.
