Regular price $12.95 Sale

Varietal: Malbec (100%)

Terroir: The Pigmentum 100% Malbec is a selection of the best Malbecs grown on the highest gravely and clay terraces of the Cahors Appellation, situated between the large loops of the Lot River, in the Southwest of France.

Wine-Making: Traditional fermentation by classic “remontage” with a cold pre-fermentation maceration and a short fermentation of two weeks to extract mainly the fruit. Tasting: A wine that is sure to provide pleasure, it has a beautiful red color with a bouquet of summer flowers as well as powerful red and black fruit aromas: raspberry, blackcurrant, and blackberry. The wine is very fruity with rich, buttery tannin on the palate. Round, attractive and inviting, it makes a fine aperitif!

Food and Wine Pairings: Pigmentum Malbec is the perfect wine to accompany everyday’s meals as well as more elaborate dishes such as roast pork, leg of lamb, duck, beef tajine, cannelloni, chicken curry, and vol au vent.
