Tasting notes : A welcoming bouquet of cassis and pepper, evolving towards ripe fruits and hazelnuts. Juicy and crisp on the palate, due to fresh acidity and well integrated tannins. This wine demands to be shared with some good friends, accompanied by succulent food: Pork roast with mushrooms, lasagne, stuffed vegetables, gratin.
Tradition is the first or introductory wine from Haut Monplaisir. As with all the domain’s cuvées, this is 100% Malbec. Tradition is made and raised primarily in concrete vats, with 10-20% raised in neutral barrels. Aromatically intense, with rich spicy mineral fruit, this is a long, earthy rendition of Malbec. Production averages 4,200 cases.
Since 2009 all of these parcels have been farmed organically, and certification came in 2012.
