Chateau de la Coustarelle Cahors 'Cuvee Prestige', 2015
This Grand Cuvee Prestige sees a 20-day fermentation period, after which aging takes place in oak barrels, a fifth of which is new each year. The 3,000 case production is bottled unfiltered. This blend of 90% Malbec and 10% Tannat shows a deep purple color. Lots of vanilla on the nose buttresses substantial dark fruit. Medium to full-body. Plenty of ripe blackberry fruit on the palate, along with a hint of licorice. Fine tannin is extremely well-integrated on the finish.
