DRINK OF THE WEEK
12th April 2021
The Best Cahors Malbec
Morrisons 8.00
Drinker Rating 90



Well here's a thing, next Satruday, 17th April, is Malbec World Day (their title not mine) - there are loads of these nowadays but who needs an excuse to crack open a bottle?

If you are celebrating this special day then I would recommend heading down to Morrisons where they have two absolute belters both in their 'The Best' range. First up is their Cahors Malbec from just north of Toulouse, it's got a lovely earthy tone to it, plum, fig and damson with grippy tannins. Then try their Gran Montana Malbec, from Argentina, a little more refined, very fruit forward wine, velvet smooth and easy drinking.

My preference is for the French malbec, I prefer the structure and balance and at only 8 compared to the Argentinian at 10 presents greater value.

Cheers.
