This is a region east of Bordeaux and known as the birthplace of Malbec. Just arrived, a 100% Malbec from Cahors. This is the reserve wine called Cuvee Prestige. It is made by a small estate producer founded in the mid 70's. This wine has a unique style and is a bit softer and more accessible that the traditional Malbec from this area. This means it brings immediate drinking pleasure to the consumer without the need for 5 extra years of bottle aging and softening.
