From the banks of the Lot river, this fully and fruity Cahors Malbec is made using organic farming methods by Claude and Yves Delpech. Grass is left between the vines and the vines are pruned according to the lunar calendar. Grapes harvested at optimum maturity and selected on table. Natural clarification and two bottlings per year.

In the glass

Satisfyingly dark in colour, with complex aromas of ripe plums with a hint of truffle as well as a pleasing freshness. Plenty of fruit but with a lightness typical of the region. Smooth blackberry and blueberries overlaid with nutmeg, cinnamon and clove. Slight liquorice finish with smooth tannins and a touch of spice.

Decent but not amazing

Smooth, drinkable Malbec. Needed a couple of hours to warm up and open up. Short finish though- not as punchy as the South American Malbecs, for better or worse!

Thank you for leaving a review! Sorry you didn't enjoy it as much as a more full bodied Malbec - you are completely right in saying that the South American style is quite different! Have you tried our Argentinian Malbec Reservado from Fabre Montmayou which sounds like it would be much more to your taste? You may also like our Italian Acanto Primitivo or Spanish Talento which are really ripe and punchy reds. Thanks again for the feedback and don't hesitate to get in touch if you'd like any suggestions or more info on any of our wines and their growers.

Light delicious Malbec

I was wowed by this wine. Fruity and light, with something floral going on.

Excellent value

Probably my favourite Malbec (and I've tried a few). Fruity and rich without being overpowering. Smooth.

We are so pleased to have this authentic Malbec - from its natural home in Cahors. So much fruit and flavour, yet subtle and smooth. Definitely one of those rare finds we love so much. Thanks so much for the review! Super helpful.

Very enjoyable

Wine at Home has some lovely Malbecs and now that they do mixed cases it’s a great way to try them. This is a fine example of the region. More rustic that the Fabre Montmayous but without the farmyard nose that you sometimes find with French Malbec. Full bodied, ripe fruit and very drinkable. Wine at Home has consistently good wines. A totally different league of wine from supermarkets or some larger suppliers and good value. Really easy to order, quick delivery and lovely people. What’s not to like?

Thank you so much for your lovely review!! We couldn't agree more re the Malbec Cahors - tiny 7th gen vineyard who really have got it right. A spectacular grape variety when properly treated - all the flavour of the fruit with a big personality and a lightness of touch. Thanks too for your comments on our service - we really appreciate it - always trying to improve our service and communication! We are blessed with a small but great team!

Delicious Malbec

Really enjoyed this juicy yet elegant organic Cahors.... easy to drink and a fabulous expression of this Malbec grape from this region - delicious!

The Lavaur family have been on this beautiful plot for generations and we love their deep knowledge and understanding of the cepage - Malbec in it's natural home - and quite unlike the Malbec of the new world! Thanks so much for your helpful review!!!
