    Winemaker Notes

    With a strong rubis color, this Vacqueyras is well balanced. It has a well developed bouquet of small red fruits and it pleasantly lingers on the palate. It can be kept up to 10 years.

    Domaine Verquieres, , France - Rhone
    Dom. Verquieres
    Domaine de Verquiere established its reputation thanks to the work and the know-how of several generations. When he was young, Grandfather Edmond bought the buildings to which he gave life again. He used to sell his wines in big barrels to the best wine-merchants of the area. Father Louis, with dynamism, gave a new impulse to the domain by selling the wines in bottles and by extending the estate. On his steps, his son Bernard took over, respecting the quality of the wines and increasing the sales through export.

    This peaceful country house, which is a rural provençale farm, delights the visitor with its setting of greenness. Their children and grandchildren were born and grew up there. Their attachment to these old walls is real.

    Sheltered by the medieval village, the wine-cellar faces south. In the background, the Dentelles de Montmirail overlook the vineyard of the estate.

    Its two sons Romain and Thibaut come to shoulder it and are the hope of the continuity and the vitality of the family company

    Uco Valley

    View all wine

    With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation, and well-draining soil, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.

    This is the source of some of the best Malbec in Mendoza, which can range from value-priced to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Chardonnay also perform well here.

    Known for its big, bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec is most famous for its runaway success in Argentina. However, the variety actually originates in Bordeaux, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends but was susceptible to viticultural problems. After being nearly wiped out by a devastating frost in 1956, it was never significantly replanted, although it did flourish under the name Côt in nearby Cahors. Malbec was brought to Argentina in 1868 by a French agronomist who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, but did not gain its current reputation as the national grape of Argentina until a surge in popularity in the late 20th century thanks to its easy-going drinkability.

    In the Glass

    Malbec typically expresses deep flavors of freshly turned earth, black fruits from berries to plums, and licorice, appropriately backed by dense, chewy tannins. In warmer, New World regions, such as Mendoza, it can be quite intense and often needs time to mellow before becoming drinkable. In the Old World, its rusticity shines, with aged examples showing dusty notes of leather and tobacco. The best examples in all regions often possess a beguiling bouquet of violets.

    Perfect Parings

    Malbec’s rustic character begs for flavorful dishes, like spicy grilled sausages or the classic cassoulet of France’s Southwest. South American iterations are best enjoyed as they would be in Argentina: with a thick, juicy steak.

    Sommelier Secret

    If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet. With its combination of bold flavors and soft tannins, it will appeal to basically anyone who enjoys red wine. Malbec also wins bonus points for affordability, as even the most inexpensive examples are often quite good.
