NV LQLC Les 7 Quelles, IGP Vaucluse, Les Quelles de la Coste, France
"It's not common to find blends of Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a 65:35 split in favour of Pinot, matured in old 225-litre French oak casks for eight months. Notes of sous bois and brambly, briary fruit add a sense of wildness to black fruit aromas. Medium-bodied but packed with fruit; silky tannins are balanced by fresh acid and a hint of chamois leather on the lingering black cherry finish. Thoroughly quaffable. Drinking Window 2019 - 2022." 91 Points
35% Cabernet Sauvignon/ 65% Pinot Noir.
"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.
