Château Bru Lagardette - Red French Wine


A first choice for your fuller flaoured or spicey dishes. Hearty and warm, the wine works really well.

My favourite from the home of the Malbec grape. Quite powerful but not overpowering and works brilliantly with the cranberry sauce, stuffings and gravy, plus the turkey of course. This French Malbec also loves strong full flavoured cheese, both hard and soft. Light whispy spice undertones with crunchy bitter cherries. Wonderful.

History

During the middle age Cahors was known as the 'Black Wine' due to it's deep colour and was served at the wedding of Eleanor of Acquitaine and Henri II Plantagenet of England. Thanks to the river Lot, the wines of Cahors could be shipped to Bordeaux and on to the UK where it was a firm favourite until the 19th century when Phylloxera destroyed the vineyard. Following replanting, Cahors acquired its Appellation status in 1971.

Regional Information

The vineyards of Cahors are situated in south-west France, overlooking the Lot River. Equidistance between the Mediterranean ocean and the Pyrenees places the vineyards ideally to grow excellent quality grapes.

Current Vintage

2020

Vinification Details

The grapes are harvested from 25 year-old vines with clayey limestone soil. The grapes are then macerated for fifteen days, followed by destemming. The next step in the process is the traditional fermentation for fifteen days to allow the alcohol to form. To impart its complexity the wine is then aged with oak for six months.
