Combel-la-Serre Le Pur Fruit du Causse Cahors 2019
Region: Cahors, South-West
Bottle size: 75cl
Viticulture: certified organic
Winemaking: short maturation in cement
As the name suggests, this particular cuvée from Combel-la-Serre is focused on pure fruit character, without the element of oak or long maturation to mask its charm. The grapes come from vines planted on causse soils (limestone and clay), giving the wine a fresh and lively juiciness.
About the producer: Run by the Ilbert family, Combel-la-Serre is a winery focused on expressing the personality of the Malbec grape. Unlike many other producers in the area, their Cahors wines are not blended, but instead showcase the unique qualities of Malbec grown on their local causse soils. Their wines are therefore a vibrant and pure expression that differs from many other more serious and dense interpretations.
