Chateau Mercues Malbec
Malbec is the original grape variety in Cahors and its marvellous characteristics are used in 70% blends with other varieties in the designation of origin. The vineyards are situated along the Lot River on its meanders and slopes, which serve as a thermal regulator, on pebbly and gravelly soil. Located between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean, rainfall and humidity levels are optimal for the quality of the vines.
TASTING NOTESA firmly extracted wine, this is still all about tannins. Power comes from the richly tannic structure, black fruits that are slowly developing and density. The juiciness of the fruit shows at the end along with the acidity, both promising a good future.
