Pierre Jaurant, Malbec, Cahors, Southwest France 2022
(at Tate Modern, London, 11 Sep 2023)
Drinking Window: 2023 - 2025
The 2021 black-label Specially Selected Argentinian Malbec (better, and better value since the duty increase, than the 2022 blue-label one) is still the top pick of Aldi's red range, but this (with 15% Merlot) is also a great buy. It has all Malbec's juicy dark plum and blackberry generosity, just in in a crisper, more minerally package.
