This six-acre Malbec vineyard is one of a handful planted in Bourg and Blaye where the grape now ripens more easily than in the past. This Bordeaux view of the grape is rich, with warm tannins and black fruit along with acidity and spice. This powerful, ripe wine from Tutiac's single-variety, single-parcel range should age, so drink from 2020.
