This is a good malbec from Cahors in south western France. Less deeply coloured and fruity than its equivalents in Argentina, it has restrained aromas of red berries, earth, herbs and oak. The palate is earthy and savoury, with liquorice overtones. Some mid weight tannins and good length complete the picture. This wine can be approached now and represents good value at this price. Rating: Good. Abv: 13%. Price: $28. Website: https://www.chateauducedre.com.
