And what a perfect vintage to welcome Malbec into the Villa Blanche family. Very deep purple with opulent aromas that intermingle ripe fruit, soft spices and notes of grilled almonds. The palate opens with great charm, redolent with ripe plums, black fruit and virginia tobacco, evolving harmoniously to finish with liquorice, peppermint, vanilla pods and toasted notes. The tannins are fine and velvety. Opulence, smoothness and a kind of luxurious elegance characterise this first vintage. We hope you enjoy drinking it as much as we enjoyed making it ...
