Deep in the wine region of Cahors in the South-West of France nestles the Château Vincens, family owned and run by Philippe Vincens and sister Isabelle. The Malbec grape is champion, blended here with 20% Merlot to soften the intensity of the wine. Lovely cherry pie and blackcurrant aromas with hints of smoke and spice lead to a chocolately rich, ripe palate. Exclusive to Rude Wines.

Buy this if...you like Malbec but have never tried Cahors.


There's quite a New World modernity to this Malbec with its chocolate and ripe tannins, but they're in decent balance and there's a plush warming black fruit to finish.'

The Producer

In the Cahors region in the south-west of France, Château Vincens lies off the beaten track, close to Luzech, where the Vincens family has built up its holdings of vines to the 33ha cultivated today. Philippe Vincens now runs the property with his sister lsabelle, though their Father Michel still keeps a very close eye on the vines.

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"Think Malbec, think Argentina? That's true for so many people, and who could blame them: Argentina produces some fabulous Malbec wines that have soared in popularity recently. However, the variety's spiritual home was, and remains, in Cahors, an appellation of Southwest France whose Malbec wines were at one time more famous that Bordeaux. This is a fine, plump and luscious example, perhaps 20% Merlot in the blend adding extra plummy depths of fruit, but smooth as silk too and the elegant cherry acidity of the finish keeping the picture sharply focused. A cracking red meat all-rounder, finishing on spice."

The Region

This rural location in the heart of south-west France champions the Malbec grape. The vineyards stretch out along the banks of the River Lot, lying equi-distant between the Atlantic and Mediterranean. The climate is warm and sunny, with low rainfall, producing intensely concentrated wines with good structure.
