A sixth generation winemaker in the southwest of France. 100% Malbec, from its ancestral home, full-bodied and rustic.
From the mouth of the importer (Kermit Lynch):
"While they might not know it, many people are already familiar with Philippe Bernède: his Clos La Coutale Cahors has long been a staple at KLWM, its iconic label and characteristic inky color symbols of affordable, terroir-driven refreshment for more than thirty years. Philippe recently acquired the nearby Château La Grave, expanding his holdings and offering a contrasting approach to Cahors that shares the incredible value of La Coutale. La Grave is one of the rare Cahors to consist exclusively of the native Malbec, or Côt, as it is locally known. Without any Merlot to soften it, this Cahors is decidedly old-fashioned, with a deep black robe and earthy, chewy tannins to frame the ripe, juicy fruit that seems to jump out of the glass."
