Brilliant Old Vine Malbec Now In Stock

Belasco de Baquedano Llama 2017

Most Malbec at this price tastes constructed. Do you know what I mean? When you go to a restaurant and there’s a choice of wines above the house wine that are usually Merlot, Montepulciano, Pinot Noir, Rioja, Malbec, varying from £22 to £32, but that all taste more or less the same, and makes you wish you’d stuck with your aperol spritz?

 


Well this Malbec is markedly different, as you’d expect from a producer that used the late winemaker of Mouton-Rothschild, Bertrand Bourdil, in its early years. It has lovely pure fruit, and a juice that floats on the palate. It's more elegant than most Malbec, and not quite as rich, with flavours of plum and cherry, and a tiny lick of fine oak, with even a hint of Bordeaux about it. It’s exceptionally gluggable but fine at the same time.
