Astrolabe Cahors Malbec 2018


Elegant powerhouse from the Cahors. With a deep crimson color. Complex and layered: blackcurrants, blackberry jelly, mocha, almonds, vanilla, cinnamon, the flavors just keep coming. With a hefty concentration. The wine has aged for 18 months in wood, you can taste this subtly. With refined tannins and a wonderfully long, slightly peppery finish.

In the south-west of Savoie lies the village of Jongieux, where Antoine and his parents make congenial, unaffected wines from local grape varieties. For whites these are jacquère and roussette and for reds gamay and mondeuse. The vineyards are situated on poor limestone slopes at about 400 meters altitude. The area has even recently been classified as a national heritage site because of its beauty. And for 7th generation Antoine, preserving this landscape is one of the most important aspects and therefore the domaine is certified 'Haute Valeur Environnementale', which means they are super sustainable.
