Chateau Haut Monplaisir Cahors Tradition 2016
|Region||France, South-West, Cahors|
|Brand||Chateau Haut Monplaisir|
This certified organic bottling is made of 100% Malbec and hails from the region of Cahors in southwest France, which is one of the original birthplaces of the Malbec variety. Grown on gravely terraced vineyards, this is fresh, silky and super suave on the palate, showing vivid notes of blackberry, fresh sage, and stony minerality.
Owned by the Cruse family, part of the old Bordeaux elite, the estate is in the southern Médoc. The wine, with its firm character and rounded fruit, has weight and considerable richness. It will develop into a plush full-bodied wine. Drink from 2020.
