Malbec - AOC Cahors Oltis - Malbec Expression de France Red wine

Oltis is the ancient Latin name for the river “Lot” that flows through the Cahors vineyards. This wine is a blend of several vintages of superior quality harmonized together following the “Perpétuelle” method : the younger vintages bring vivacity to the wine, with aromas and flavors of fine black and red fruits along evident freshness on the nose as well as on the palate. The older millésimes carry more evolved notes and more matured tannins.
