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.

The Winemaker

Philippe Vincens is helped by Genevieve Mirande in the cellar, using traditional vinification techniques combined with modern technology to produce rich reds from the Malbec grape variety with smaller amounts of Merlot and Cabernet.

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.

Spiced Aubergine & Halloumi Skewers

Try these simple veg and cheese kebabs with a dark decadent red wine - plump for styles with plenty of polished dark fruit - think Malbec, Shiraz or Pinotage.

Marinated Goat's Cheese Salad

The strong marinade in this salad will pair well with rich, fruit-driven reds. Beware - you need to plan ahead with this dish as the marinade works best after two weeks!

Game Sausage Rolls

Who needs a plain old sausage roll when you can have a game sausage roll? The ultimate buffet nibble, these will go nicely with a medium-full bodied red with rich, dark fruit flavours to pair with the gamey notes.
