Malbec is widely known in France as “Cot” except in Bordeaux because it was introduced there by a man named, Michel Malbek. It is the principal grape variety of the appellation of Cahors and is used as well in Bordeaux though it plays second or third to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in that vineyard (when used at all). In Saint Emilion Malbec is sometimes referred to as “Pressac”. Malbec grows well on clay-limestone soils (argilocalcaire). It is a vigorous varietal with thick skins that adapts well to warm growing regions such as the Languedoc and Argentina. Marc Roman Malbec is a rich, soft, fruity wine.
A heat-loving varietal, Malbec thrives in the warm sunshine of Southern France where consistent weather and patience allow tannins to ripen fully. It’s this warm climate that enables Marc Roman to make a rich and velvety Malbec, packed with black spice notes and dark berry fruit.
