Hidden Grapes Malbec 2020

Vin de France

Adopted by Argentina, Malbec became a star red grape, but its true home is France. And now it's making a comeback. Pierre Sauvion is the winemaker who tracked down the best grapes and made this juicy red with its silky black fruit and peppery notes.

For centuries Malbec has been grown in Bordeaux and SW France under the names of Pressac and Auxerrois – in fact, it has 47 pseudonyms! It's also grown with a passion in the Loire as Côt. Centuries back it was prized for its tannins, which enabled the wine to survive long crossings by sea. Argentina then showed the world what a delicious, velvety red it could be and now French winemakers have revisited their style. The upshot is this pretty wine created by fourth-generation winemaker Pierre Sauvion. He scoured the country for the juiciest, ripest berries, choosing most from his homeland, the Loire. Plump with ripe cassis and blueberry, with a hint of pepper, it's smooth and generous. A tasty red with roast white meats or a hearty bake.
