Villa Blanche Malbec

Villa Blanche Malbec

Founded in 1995, Calmel & Joseph is a maison de negoce specializing in Languedoc-Roussillon wines from private wineries from across the region. Over the years, they have built close personal relationships with a large number of growers from all appellations. Convinced of the extraordinary potential of this region, oenologist, Laurent Calmel, and Jerome Joseph work together on the vinification, blending and ageing of wines with the common purpose of demonstrating the little known yet unique quality of these Mediterranean terroirs. As well as their desire to produce high quality wines consistent with their terroirs, they are committed to making wines which reflect their convictions and experience.

Vineyards

Limestone clay and gravel. The climate is Mediterranean with continental influences that bring a cool humidity to the atmosphere. Thermal amplitude is great between winter/summer and day/night, propitious to complexity and typicity in the Malbec grape.

Vinification

Traditional vinification with total destemming and partial crushing at 20%. Short 15-minute pumping over daily with a fermentation temperature of between 25 and 28°C. Total vatting time 3 weeks. Malolactic fermentation after settling. Matured in first-fill barrels for 4 months.

Tasting Notes

What a perfect vintage to welcome Malbec into the Villa Blanche family. Very deep purple with opulent aromas that intermingle ripe fruit, soft spices and notes of grilled almonds. The palate opens with great charm, redolent with ripe plums, black fruit and virginia tobacco, evolving harmoniously to finish with liquorice, peppermint, vanilla pods and toasted notes. The tannins are fine and velvety. Opulence, smoothness and a kind of luxurious elegance characterise this first vintage.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
