2018 ‘M’ Grand Malbec, IGP Pays d’Oc , France
Deep coloured, the nose shows sweet black berry fruits, violets and a hint of licquorice. The palate is quite full with sweet dark fruits and ripe tannins.
Alain Grignon, formerly head of cooperatives in Gascogny, became increasingly frustrated by many aspects of the domestic French wine industry. So with his partners, he set up his business in 1999. As well as running a team of winemakers and viticulturalists sourcing fruit in the Languedoc, predominantly in St Chinian and also in the Côtes de Gascogne, he is involved with the selection of top class individual domaines. His company is now one of the most respected sources of high quality and reliable wines from the region.
