Two stars in the Guide Hachette 2017. Gold Medal IGP Cote du Lot 2016.

Favourite dish: Sunday roast

Our signature Malbec blend is made with organic hand-picked grapes from our own low yielding vines, matured gently without oak and bottled at our Domaine. Unfined with only light filtering before bottling, all Tour de Belfort wines are suitable for vegans (fining agents often contain animal proteins such as milk and fish products).

The Malbec grape is known by several names, but it originates from Southwest France, more precisely from Quercy and the vineyards of Cahors, and famously known as the "Black wine", a favourite of Tsar Peter the Great who imposed it on the Orthodox church. Recently it has become synonymous with Argentina, but our region is still the second largest producer of Malbec producing 10% of worldwide production.  Malbec thrives in our vineyard with its limestone soil, altitude of 300m and climate which has less rainfall than Bordeaux in the west where it can also be used in blends.  Malbec is recognised as a noble variety with fruity tannins, good ageing potential and an inky dark colour, hence the name black wine.

The Cabernet Franc is one of the oldest grape varieties of the Bordeaux region and essentially the right bank, such as Saint-Emilion, where it is often dominant in blends. It is also a well-established grape variety in our Quercy region.  We use Cabernet France to blend with Malbec to give our wine complexity and wide bouquet of aromas and fruit in our Cuveé Classique red wines. In years when it achieves perfect maturity we will also produce a single variety Grand Vin matured in the finest French oak barrels.
