This is a deep ruby and broody Malbec made from 40-year-old vines near the Lujan de Cuyo and Las Compuertas regions. Approximately, 60% of the wine is matured in French oak barrels for 1 year. Fabre Montmayou Reserva 2016 is medium-plus-bodied with floral top notes, ripe red cherry and savoury spice flavours on the palate. Tannins are silky. Very approachable now.

Malbec food pairings: game, lamb, spaghetti and meat balls, veal cutlets, osso buco, hard cheese.

Reviews and Ratings

Fabre Montmayou Reserva 2016 is a dark, broody Malbec from Argentina. The Malbec wine grapes were sourced from 40-year-old vines near the Lujan de Cuyo and Las Compuertas regions. Approximately, 60% of the wine is matured in French oak barrels for 1 year. Pair with a rare steak. Deep ruby in the glass with floral top notes, ripe red cherry and savoury spice aromas. Just a lovely, easygoing Malbec with ripe dark fruit and cherry flavours on the palate finishing with chocolate and vanilla notes from oak ageing. Tannins are silky. Enjoy now with grilled meats. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
