We’ve tasted this
The Languedoc region is perfectly situated to grow the Malbec varietal, as the region experiences 300+ days of sunshine every year. The Malbec grapes spend a longer period on the vine, resulting in a grape that is filled with juicy, bold flavour.
Deep red in colour with intense purple hues. This wine has an excellent structure, velvety texture, and a nice acidity combined with softness and flavours of ripe berries, thyme, rosemary, and juniper berry bushes. Bold and delicious!

Pleasant French Malbec
This is an outstanding Malbec at a very reasonable price. I could thoroughly recommend this wine.
There is Malbec and Malbec. This is seriously good Malbec.
I love my red wine, and this was delicious, I have ***** some the rest is being saved for when I can finally invite people into my bubble for lunch. Ordering was easy(I’m elderly and not computer literate) so well done you.
This is a mid-range Malbec from the single-vineyard collection (in this case Gardemiel vineyard which is in the foothills of the Pyrenees), and at £8.95 and 13.5% I think it's pretty good value, falling somewhere between your 'basic' and 'reserva' styles. It's been oaked but not heavily. This also seems to have (and I may be wrong) an individually numbered bottle, and yes it may be number 021907 but I still think that's an interesting touch. On the nose: Vanilla, oak, cherry, blackcurrant and spice. To taste: This may be a medium to full bodied wine but on opening it is super fresh, super juicy and quite lively with a nice balance of tannins and acidity. Very drinkable from the off, with or without food. As it opens up it does smooth out and become a little more 'refined' and less juicy. At that point the taste profile starts off with a smooth cherry/berry fruitiness which gives way to milk chocolate, followed by cranberry and a long spicy finish. Interesting, fresh and good value from start to finish.
