Château Les Croisille Calcaire 2014

Cahors, Sud-Ouest, FranceFrench malbec has a spotty history in Cahors unless you loved the monster, black editions that were the norm in the 70s and 80s and persist among some producers today. We lean more toward the refined offerings. Germaine Croisille is one such grower and family in its third generation making beautiful malbec with finesse and style. The vineyards are 30 to 25 years old on limestone soils and you can feel it throughout the wine and its understated fruit, light licorice and pepper and its sensational chalky textures. This is a bargain for wine geeks. Real wine.Tasted: 09 October 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 32.99 BCLS Producer: Château Les CroisilleDistributors: World Wine Synergy Inc.
