Touraine-Amboise Chateau Montdomaine 2017

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for 8 euros on a recent visit to France.The Touraine appellation was created in 1939,although viticulture here goes back to at least the Romans,for red,white,rose and sparkling wines from 70 communes around the town of Tours in the Loire valley.In 1954 the appellation of Touraine-Amboise was created within that area for red,rose and white but not sparkling wines from 10 communes around the town of Amboise. My bottle comes from a small concern in this area and is 100% cot as malbec is known in these parts.I started my bottle last night with my supper of roast pork.It was a deep dark red colour.It is a full bodied and well structured wine with plenty of a blackberry and bramble style fruit and soft tannins.In short this is a first class malbec that would match many foods. I am not the only one to like this wine as it got a gold medal at the Vignerons Independants Concours 2018 wine competition
