Val de Loire Touraine Cot 2005

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from the www.amandaswines.co.uk stand at the 2018 London France Show back in January.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.Domaine du Prieure is a small concern in this area,My bottle is 100% malbec,or cot as it is known in these parts and is unoaked.I started it last night with my supper of chicken kiev.There is plenty of a blackcurrant,blackbery and bramble style fruit with a hint of spice or pepper,especially on the finish.It has soft,smooth but well structured tannins.In short,this is a lovely wine that would go well with many foods.
