2018 Clos la Coutale, Cahors
This blend of 80% Malbec and 20% Merlot is intense wine that is both rustic and full bodied but also perfect for everyday drinking. It also ages well.
The Bernede family farm 60 hectares on the gentle slopes rising from the Lot river, rich in siliceous, clay and limestone soils. Philippe has tinkered with the blend over the years to achieve a fine equilibrium.
