Description

"They make three cuvées with careful use of micro-oxygenation, all 100% non-filtered Malbec. The first is a straight Cahors, a dark, richly-fruited wine made in cement vats; the second is the smoky mineral-laden Cahors Prestige, a deliciously meaty wine made in new and old oak; then there is the luxury cuvee Pur Plaisir, which considering the labor that goes into the wine, is an astonishing buy. The wine is made in new 500-liter demi-muids (oversized barrels). At harvest the coopers come, stand the barrels on end, and knock out the other end. The fruit, from the domaine's best parcel, is crushed directly into the demi-muids to undergo alcoholic fermentation, an almost unheard of practice. Once the initial fermentation is complete, the wine is racked out of the demi-muids, the coopers are brought back in to re-install the ends, the barrels are laid on their sides, and the wine is poured back to undergo malolactic fermentation. This is an immense wine with succulent, spicy plum and prune fruit, wrapped in round tannins and long with its iron-infused terroir." -Importer
