Georges Vigouroux, Pigmentum Malbec, Cahors, France, 2018
(at Saatchi Mess Gallery, London, 17 Sep 2019)
Drinking Window: 2019 - 2021
Supermarket shelves are stacked with Argentinian Malbec, so it's nice to see one from the French home of the grape. With its vibrant colour true to its name, this is a crowd-pleasing, unoaked Malbec, packed with ripe blue and purple berries, lifted violet notes, fresh acidity and sappy fruit tannins. A perfect party wine.
