Les Volets Malbec, Pays de la Haute Vallée de l’Aude (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
The Haute Vallée de L’Aude benefits from a warm climate combined with high altitude which results in wines with concentrated fruit yet refreshing acidity.
Let's get back to where it all began with this mid-weight and harmonious French Malbec, a delicious expression of purity and youth. When you open the bottle you immediately smell mulberries which develop on to reveal redcurrant and blackcurrant aromas in the glass. The Les Volet is a really delicate French Malbec with an intriguing bitter-sweet character that definitely displays a touch of underlying parma violets sweets. Complex without being clumsy it still displays all those wonderful fruit flavours you want from a Malbec, raspberries backed up with a touch of buttery chocolate truffle richness. It's a wine we get asked for time and again in the shop and we hope it will become one of your favourites too. One big recommendation from us though, it's not like Argentinian Malbec so it doesn't really stand up to steak, it's definitely a wine to go with pork chops or sausage and mash.
