Clos d'Audhuy 2021 "Queue de Pressoir" (Vin de France))

There is a lovely story here. Benoit acquired a prize parcel of old Malbec in the midst of which were several rows of Ségalin, an ancient variety of rustic character. His inspiration was to make from this parcel a wine that can be described as a “red rosé” or a “rosé red”, into which he introduced the “queue de pressoir’ – or last pressings – from his regular rosé. Whatever you call it, the wine is simply delicious and silky, shading the primary fruitiness with a vivifying green tone.

Notes from the Producer: "Queue de Pressoir" highlights the obscure Ségalin grape, a nearly-forgotten variety indigenous to Cahors, known for its tannic, rustic character. It is vinified in an almost rosé-like fashion; lightly extracted, thus allowing the more delicate elements of the grape to come through. Combined with 30% "end of press" malbec from Benoit's 'Polisson' rosé, this is easy drinking, off-the-beaten-path, low tannin red wine with bright bursts of ripe red berries (strawberry/raspberry).
