Château les Croisille, La Pierre Malbec, 2019, Cahors, France
£36.20 (inc VAT)
Thought you’ve had every style of Malbec on the planet? Then try this pure and geologically bonkers Malbec that ages in a tank that looks more like a tomb - niche, but intriguing nonetheless. Germain Croisille worked with a local artisan to carve a vat from limestone rock, taking the philosophy of terroir to the next OTT level to produce a single parcel Malbec that really sings from its birthplace. Gird your loins and experience Malbec that is more like The Second Coming of heaps of crunchy fruit that have just taken in some invigorating air by the Brighton seaside.
Château le Croisille was born out of a family's last endeavour to turn passion into a career. Armed with a passion for the land, Bernard and Cecile Fages Croisille set up shop in Luzech in 1979. Starting as grape growers, Bernard and Cecile did not come from a winemaking background, and their neighbour taught them how to make wine. 10 years later, Bernard and Cecille made their first wine, and with the help of the family, they renovated the old cellar.
