The Clos La Coutale, a 60 hectares estate spreads over a stretch of land on the alluvial floor of the valley amid the meanders of the river Lot. Its soil is particulary suitable for vines, for it contains gravels, silicates and limestone clays. Because of the lie of the land, facing south-west, the estate is sheltered from the cold winds that blow from the "Causse" region (an upland plateau), and consequently it enjoys a micro-climate which ensures that the vines and their fruit ripen fully early in the season.

In style Coutale doesn t make many concessions to Malbec tannins. What you get is an impressively structured firmly tannic wine packed also with black fruits. The solid structure and the weight of fruit demand aging for at least 5 years. - R.V. Wine Enthusiast.
