Expression

“The most beautiful Malbec Expression…”

Sherry and chocolate aromas from a structure where strongness, finesse and elegance go together.

GRAPE VARIETIES

100% Malbec

TERROIR

A 5 hectares old vines bloc on a clay-limestone terroir totally selected specially for this wine – 3rd terrace of Lot Valley.
Very low yield, 1,3 kg of grape-plant – 30 Hl/ha.

WINE-MAKING

Maceration takes place during 40 days. The wine is ageing during 24 months in new oak barrels with regular stirring of the lees (for 6 month).

MATURING

Wine-maturing in 100% new oak barrels issued from the center area of France (fine selection of several coopers).

TASTING NOTES

The aim of using barrels from different origins is to highlight the terroir expression but also the Lamartine style: more concentration than extraction. A pure alliance of power and elegance. Very nice morello cherry and chocolate notes.

LAYING-DOWN POTENTIAL

From 4 to 20 years.

SERVICE TEMPERATURE

To serve between 17° and 18°C.
To accompany wild game, lamp, cheese or black chocolate.
