French Malbec usually has a traditional rustic, earthy edge to it with less obvious fruit, higher tannins, and more gamy notes of wild herbs and soil. Although there are some examples of 100% Malbec, it is more commonly blended with other traditional varietals of the region.
Malbec is Argentina’s most important red varietal and is quickly gaining popularity in Chile as well. Produced in a rich, powerful style, the emphasis here is on smoky ripe fruit flavors, spicy toasty oak, with a plush, fleshy texture.
