TASTING NOTES

COLOUR: Deep red colour with dense violet tones.

NOSE: The bouquet, attractive and charming, provides an explosion of red fruits like cherries and plumbs. The French oak adds delicious hints of vanilla, coffee, and interesting complexity.

PALATE: On the palate, the wine is rich and well structured with soft tannins.

FINISH: Long and elegant finish.

COMMENTS: Great combined with delicate dishes, grilled meats, and chocolate desserts.

WINERY

Hervé Joyaux Fabre, owner and director of Fabre Montmayou, was born in Bordeaux, France, to a family of wine négociants. When he arrived in Argentina in the early 90’s looking for opportunities to invest in vineyards and start a winery, he was impressed by the potential for Malbec in Mendoza.

As a true visionary, he bought very old Malbec vineyards, planted in 1908, and built the Fabre Montmayou winery in the purest Chateau Style from Bordeaux. His passion and “savoir faire” did the rest, enabling him to begin producing exceptional wines that have achieved international acclaim and are enjoyed in over twenty countries.

With constant care and personal style – essential elements for great quality – Fabre Montmayou combines modern winemaking, Mendoza’s terroir and the Bordeaux “savoir faire” to produce wines of unique personality, farmed using traditional methods and without herbicides in order to obtain the best grapes while respecting the environment.
