CHECK-OUT THE ORIGINAL MALBEC!
Today, Malbec is associated with Argentina, but the original hails from the south west of France. It’s drier and more rustic than the popular editions from Argentina. So there is a ‘needs food’ feeling. Along with the invitation to imagine you’re dining at a bistro in rural France. As is the case with most French wines – their Malbecs were never intended as party drinks. Or something you’d love on first sip. But the price is certainly easy to like.
