Zuccardi Q Malbec Valle de Uco 2019
VARIETAL WINES, DISTINCT BLENDS FROM SELECT VINEYARDS, WHICH COME FROM THE BEST PARTS OF MENDOZA. EACH BATCH IS HARVESTED SEPARATELY AT DIFFERENT TIMES, WITH THE GOAL OF ACHIEVING ELEGANCE AND EXCELLENCE IN THE WINE.
Fresh and highly aromatic with concentrated layers of blackberry, blueberry and tobacco taking centre stage. High-altitude fruit combines with native yeasts to bring a rich, earthy wine carrying a fuller body, round tannins and a long, engaging finish.
Château Famaey Malbec, Cahors, France (2017)
Château Famaey is first and foremost the story of Luc and Marc, two braves Belgian Childhood friends, who shared the same dream : producing a wine issued from a rich ‘Terroir’ in the magnificent region of Cahors. This dream came true when they became proprietors of this 33 hectares vineyard, situated on the 2nd and 3rd Terraces of the Lot Valley. Then Maarten, son of Luc to whom the father’s passion has been passed on, joined the duo to take on the role of ‘Maître de Chai’. He collaborates with one of the best oenologist of the region, in the constant desire to seek quality and evolution.
Ripe, smoky blackberry flavors dominate this perfumed wine. The 18 months in wood have added to the dry core of tannins while leaving room for the juicy fruits. This wine will age and soften the tannins.
