A complex red wine, the Les Volets Malbec has strong berry notes, and is great with hearty meats, like steak and pork.

TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Made with 100% Malbec grapes from Vallee du l’Aude, the Les Volets Malbec has a vibrant ruby color, and an ABV of 13%. It has notes of red currant and crushed blueberries on the nose, that give way to crème de cassis, and hints of parma violets. Complex on the palate, it has flavors of fine red fruits, with notes of raspberries and hints of dark chocolate truffle.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

Pair the Les Volets Malbec with grilled steak and meats, pork chops, or sausages. It also goes brilliantly with seared tuna.

BEST CONDITIONS

Grapes are sourced from the wild, rugged landscape of Pays Cathare that surrounds the towns of Carcassonne and Limoux with its argilo–calcaire soils. Home to the AOPs of Languedoc and Limoux, the vineyards do not stop with the AOP geographical limits and it is from these outskirts that some exceptionally interesting wines have been sourced. One of the great advantages of the region is that it benefits from enviable geographic and climatic conditions. The warm Mediterranean sunshine is tempered by the altitude and the cooler nights are characteristic of the foothills of the Pyrenees. These are ideal conditions, allowing for the longer, slower ripening of the grapes and providing a superb base for the elaboration of wines that offer intensity, complexity and finesse.The traditional ‘noble’ grape varieties of Pinot Noir have a natural affinity in the Haute Vallée de l’Aude. Made from mostly hand-picked grapes, this wine has been vinified in large, old oak barrels which impart texture and intensity.
