The fruit of this 100% Malbec comes from seven different Combel sites totalling 8.5 hectares around their home village of Cournou, which lies on the Causse, a limestone plateau in Cahors at 250-320 meters in elevation. Planted on clay-limestone soils, the vines are certified-organic, averaging 30 years old and are kept to a modest 40 hl/ha yield. The bunches are hand-harvested and mainly destemmed but with up to 20% directly pressed as whole clusters; the juice ferments at cool temperatures with indigenous yeasts in cement and steel tanks with around 12 days of maceration. The wine is aged on its lees in cement through the winter and bottled in the spring.

This wine has aromas of concentrated blueberry, licorice, and cassis, with green herbs and a hint of coca on the finish. The palate adds red cherry, raspberry, red fruits, and earthy, leathery tones with hints of smoke, mineral and stone mid-palate. Refreshing acidity balanced by soft tannins and a long finish.

Pairs excellent with lighter cuts of beef, cassoulet, mushrooms, roast duck, duck confit, roast lamb, roast pork, mild blue cheese, short ribs, couscous, and turkey.
