Nestled amidst the rugged beauty of southwestern France, where imposing rock formations and cliffs frame its path, the Lot River meanders lazily through the valley, embracing the picturesque town of Cahors with a possessive embrace. The town's architectural tapestry tells tales of generations past, from its Roman origins to its bustling medieval days as a pivotal hub for commerce and pilgrimage along the Santiago de Compostela trail.

In this land steeped in history and tradition, one constant source of pride has been its wines. A.O.C. Cahors boasts the renowned "black wine" of the Southwest—inky and earthy, a perfect companion to the regional delicacies, particularly duck and its rich fat. And at the heart of this winemaking legacy lies the birthplace of Cot, better known as Malbec.

Philippe Bernède, custodian of Clos La Coutale and scion of a vine-tending lineage, is intimately acquainted with the rhythms of the Southwest. His Château La Grave stands as a testament to this heritage, boasting a rare distinction—being 100% Malbec, a departure from the customary blends of Cahors, where Merlot or Tannat often play supporting roles. La Grave not only offers exceptional value but also embodies the robust essence of the region, making it a delight for immediate enjoyment and a promising addition to any cellar.

 

“Old-world Malbec from its ancestral terroir, a soft, red-fruit wine with delicious raspberry and red cherry, dry brambly tannins and dark-fruit undercurrents, savory notes and a touch of earth. Dangerously easy to drink. 100% Malbec.​”
