Unit price  per 

95% Malbec (5% Merlot)

Terroir-driven and elegant, from one of the top producers in Cahors. Spicy black fruits, smoke, violets, dark chocolate, lush with just a touch of tannin. Certified organic agriculture, hand-harvested,  Pascal Verhaeghe and his brother, Jean-Marc, bring a welcome refinement to the wines of picturesque southwest France. Great for a summer BBQ when served chilled, or with a #9 Sammy from Dépanneur—that's the one with rosemary ham & garlic aioli :)

-70% sourced from limestone plateau (resulting in lighter, fresher Malbec), and 30% from iron/gravelly terraces (which creates a richer denser Malbec)

-matured for 18 months (90% concrete and 10% in 2 year old oak barrels)
