Natalie's Score: 92/100

François Lurton L'esprit De Chacayes 2021 is a 100% Malbec produced from organically grown grapes sourced from the Los Chacayes, Uco Valley, Mendoza; 70% of the grapes came from massal selections of Argentine Malbec that have been part of the terroir for over 100 years with the 30% in Cot, the clonal French Malbec Piedra Negra planted around 2000. Dry, full-bodied and intense with dark berry, wild herb flavours vibrant on the palate and with some very firm tannins. Needs about five-plus years in cellar.

Food pairings: veal cutlets, grill chicken dishes, Cornish game hens.
