Simply called a 'Touraine Rouge' this wine is 100% Malbec (locally called Côt). Although Malbec is mostly associated with Argentina these days, historically France has produced a lot of Malbec, mostly in the regions of Cahors, Bordeaux and the Loire Valley. This light to medium bodied red is a much more restrained counterpart to what you might expect if you are used to Argentinian Malbecs. Flavors and aromas of Pomegranite, red cherries with hints of anise and white pepper. It pairs well with ham, patés, grilled salmon and duck.
