Georges Vigouroux and his son, Bertrand Gabriel, are Malbec specialists. They produced the “Gouleyant” ( or “easy to drink” in French) to offer consumers a Cahors that highlights Malbec, the variety grown in Cahors for over 2,000 years. This “black wine” has flowed through the veins of four generations of Vigouroux, who are the undisputed experts in France for these dark-coloured wines. This family has been perfecting the symbiosis between Malbec grapes and ‘terroir’ since 1887.
Gouleyant is a selection of the best Malbec grown on the highest gravely and clayey terraces of the appellation Cahors, situated between the large loops of the Lot river, in Southwest France. Bertrand is constantly trying to optimize the potential of the malbec, that he often named “the Diva grape, it can produce incredible wines, but you have to give her your best first! ”
Although Malbec skins have very rich coloring matter, the first juice out of the wine press is pale enough to offer an alternative to the region’s traditional red wines. By the gentle direct press method, Bertrand obtains a light, crisp Rosé.
The wine is bright with a tempting pink hue. The nose is aromatic, with hints of perfume and red fruit. The opens with fresh flavors of currants and raspberries, with a lingering finish balanced by crisp acidity.
An ideal aperitif on a hot summer day, or to pair with light salads, white meats or Asian cuisine.
