Wine Enthusiast 92
Malbec blended with a total of 10 Merlot and Tannat gives a wine that is firmly structured. It comes from the heights above the River Lot, a magnificent chalk-soil vineyard. Rich in tannins and young black fruits, it is just beginning to develop. Drink from 2023.
Malbec (90), Merlot (7), Tannat (3)
Very dark color with carmine highlights and a wonderfully complex and powerful bouquet of morello cherry, blackcurrant, and spices. The freshness and fruitiness on the nose carry over beautifully to the palate, which has a long, silky aftertaste.
Chateau De Haute-Serre Vineyards
Malbec is the original grape variety in Cahors, and its marvellous characteristics are used in 70% blends with other varieties. 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.
