2015 LQLC Cabernet Sauvignon, Les Quelles de la Coste, IGP Vaucluse, France
"An ambitious Bordeaux-style Cabernet from Provence, made from vines planted in 2008. Classic aromas of blackcurrants and mint have a distinctive wild hint. Matured for 12 months in barrel and vats, the tannic structure is firm and points to some life ahead. But at this stage there's also freshness, good grip, elegance and purity of fruit. Drinking Window 2019 - 2029." 93 Points.
14% ABV. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
"Actor John Malkovich has launched a range of French wines under the Les Quelles de la Coste label. Made from grapes grown on the family estate in Luberon that Malkovich owns with his long-term partner, film director Nicoletta Peyran, the range currently includes a Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé, a single-varietal Pinot Noir and a Cabernet Sauvignon, plus two Cabernet-Pinot blends: Les 7 Quelles and Les 14 Quelles. All are classified as IGP Vaucluse." Julie Sheppard, Decanter Magazine 06 Sept 2019.
