Description

Château Quattre is an inky dark star from Cahors. This ruggedly beautiful region, three hours south of Bordeaux, is famed for its hearty ‘black reds’ – thanks to the local hero grape, Cot.

Cot is more familiarly known to us as Malbec. But what sets it apart from the young whippersnappers of Argentina is its age-worthiness. The best southern French Malbecs come into their own after at least 10 years’ patient ageing – and they are quickly snapped up by those in-the-know!

Château Quattre 2009 is crafted by oenologist-consultant Eric Filipiak, whose grandparents moved from Poland to France between the two world wars. Water was the norm to drink at home but Eric developed a fascination for wine and is now a veteran of over 30 vintages. Dazzling with TWO Golds and 89pts from Wine Enthusiast magazine, it’s smooth and mellow, still rippling with gorgeously ripe forest fruits – but with those satisfying earthy savoury and spice notes too, thanks to patient ageing in fine oak barrels. It’s a truly sumptuous red, 11 years old, and drinking beautifully right now, especially with BBQ pork or duck.

Review
"Don't expect the sweet ripeness of New World Malbec, this is a mellow French Malbec. A rare classic" Jean-Marc Sauboua, Buyer for SW France
