Place: Touraine - Loire Valley, FRA
Variety: Cot (Malbec)
Guy Allion is quietly producing wines of incredible value in the eastern Loire Valley. His sauvignon blanc, gamay and malbec all share a DNA of purity and immense deliciousness.
Cot, as malbec is known in the Loire, is handled gently here. Completely destemmed then fermented and aged in stainless steel to retain maximum freshness. Ripe, fresh, fleshy and mouth-filling, this is absolutely autumnal wine.
