Chateau Malbec 2014 Bordeaux

Item Number: 11 10 402 14

Customer Rating Based on a scale of 1 to 5 glasses


The diversity of the Château Malbec terroirs coupled with superb end-of-summer sunshine in 2014 meant grapes could be harvested at the peak of ripeness. A blend of 75% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec planted on the Chateaux' Pyrenean gravel soil with ideal drainage. The wine fermented over 22 to 24 days to extract the best from the fruit. 50% was aged 14 months in French oak barrels. This wine received a Platinum Award and a 95 point score, named The Best Red Bordeaux Under $20 in the Decanter World Wine Awards. They said "Superb intense and very inviting aromas of sweet cassis black fruit, warm spicy oak and coffee. Lovely mouth-filling palate of glossy delicious black fruit and well judged oak giving an appealing spicy undercurrent. Superb wine.”
