Here's a cracking red from Hervé Sabardeil, winemaker behind favourites Cabalié to Chante Clair. He discovered some 30 year old Malbec vines in the Languedoc. The grapes were top quality, begging to be vinified solo. The upshot: a seductive ripe red.

Hasn't Malbec come a long way! It used to produce the tough, tannic reds of SW France, then Argentina got a hold of it and made it a worldwide star. Not to be out done, France is revisiting this grape and, with refined techniques and careful handling, showing just how appealing its wines can be. Hervé discovered a plot of 30 year old vines in the Languedoc's Vallée de l'Orb, on soils covered with big boulder like stones that promote grapes with lovely intensity and ripeness. Impressed, he bagged the lot. Hand harvesting, gentle handling, and just a short time on its skins, have resulted in a silky, ripe, supple wine, with ample fruit tinged with herbs and liquorice. A fine choice with marinaded pork chops, roast chicken or veggie kebabs.
