100% Malbec (aka Auxerrois in local parlance). From a pebbly 1.35-hectare parcel on clay-limestone soils juste derrière chez Carbo-- “from behind the house of Carbo”—the double-entendre name “Carbo” being a reference to vineyard neighbor Monsieur Carbonier as well as the vinification method. Farming of these 35-year-old vines is certified-organic and harvest is by hand. The whole clusters are carbonically macerated for about 6 days in a sealed tank with CO2, before pressing and fermentation with native yeasts. The wine is classified as an IGP Côtes-du-Lot because there is no allowance in the Cahors AOC for carbonic maceration.

green grapes

Varietal: Malbec

Malbec grapes have a beautiful deep and dusty purple color, and can now be found growing in abundance in many different countries. They thrive most successfully in hot, dry southern climates, a long way from their home in native France. However, whilst many Old World wineries had and continue to have a lot of success with this flavorful grape, its susceptibility to rot and weakness against cold and damp meant that its usage began to dwindle in the countries such as France whilst it grew in the New. Malbec's thick skins lend it strong tannins, something which allows the wines produced from these grapes to hold their distinctive, astringent and full-bodied character. They also tend to be packed full of plummy, fleshy fruit-forward flavors, making them an interesting and complex grape for single variety wines, as well as an ideal grape for blending and aging.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
