While the mighty Malbec grape may have found fame in Argentina, Cahors will always be the birthplace of Malbec. Wines here are more typically French – elegant and refined yet still delivering deep black fruit richness. Wines like Marquis D’Olt.
Marquis D’Olt comes from the region’s top co-operative winery, whose grapes normally go to some of Cahors' most prestigious châteaux
After patient oak ageing, this wine has developed added layers of toast and vanilla spice
Decanter Magazine notes that “Argentinian Malbec is crafted to be drunk young for its vibrancy, while Cahors is capable of greater structure and longevity”
Tasting note:Lashings of deep plum and blackberry flavours perfectly balanced by gentler notes of oaky spice and liquorice. All the fruit of Argentinian Malbec with the finesse of French winemaking.
