‘En Mémoire du Malbec’ (In Memory of Malbec) is a tribute to the outstanding Malbec wines produced in France before 1956 when a devastating frost destroyed 75% of the Malbec crop. Malbec grapes actually originate in Bordeaux, France, where the Lagarde vineyard has been located since the 1850s. Lagarde is run by the Raymond family, whose organic practices and care for the soil led to the revival of the Malbec grape and the creation of this superb wine.
Thus, cultivated 100% organically from top-quality grapes with zero preservatives and sulfites, this open-knit Malbec is completely authentic to France and its distinctive flavors. Fresh and lively, the ‘En Memoire du Malbec’ entices with flavors of raspberry and cherry and hints of white pepper and bramble. The 2019 Malbec is dry with perfectly balanced acidity, boldness, and tannins on the higher end. Smooth and velvety, with a medium finish, this is an exquisite bottle and it shows. The 2019 ‘En Memoire du Malbec’ is best enjoyed on special occasions with a plate of your favorite vegan cheeses, tofu dishes, or plant-based burgers.
100% Organic Malbec Grape. Contains sulfites.
