Chateau La Grave Cahors (750ml)
The town of Cahors, located in southwest France; was once the center of commerce during the Middle Ages that served as an important crossroads for pilgrims on the trail to Santiago de Compostella. The A.O.C. Cahors is known as the “black wine” of the Southwest; deeply inky, earthy wines. Cahors is also the birthplace of Cot, the grape more commonly known as Malbec.
La Grave is an incredible value on multiple levels—it is a hearty, full-bodied wine to drink now and a top candidate for your cellar.
Château La Grave stands out as it is 100% Malbec, a rarity here in Cahors as most often the wines are blended with up to 30% Merlot or Tannat. The grapes are sorted and de-stemmed after the harvest. Fermentation lasts 5 weeks in stainless steel tanks with daily punch-downs. Aged in 100hl wood tanks for one year before bottling. Aged in bottles for 3 months. Not filtered nor fined.
Chateau La Grave Cahors is Malbec from the Southwest of France. While everyone thinks of Argentina when they think of Malbec, the grape actually originated in the South of France. 100% Malbec, this wine is lush on the palate with dark fruit, spice and earthy notes. It is the perfect wine for roast chicken, duck or pork.
