    A beautiful colour and a rich and complex aroma with a nice balance of creamy oak with mellowed ripe fruits. The palate is dark and dense with hints of violets, vanilla and black currants.

    The fruit has held well and still integrates with the tannins. The wine is a softer and gentler version of its youthful self.

  • Sean Mitchell 2014     "Mas des Étoiles is a collaboration of two vignerons, Arnaud Bladinières and David Liorit, who have planted a hectare of chardonnay and sauvignon blanc and 4 hectares of malbec in Cahors in south western France. There is so much good (and often powerful) malbec coming from Mendoza these days, that it is interesting to check in on its progress in its home neighbourhood in Cahors in south western France. Just looking at the map created a pang of desire on my part to return to this beautiful region.

    The 2010 vintage here is deeply coloured and has aromatics of mulberry, roast meats and anise. The palate is full bodied, with its expression of mulberry, plum and fine grained tannins in balance. There's a savoury complexity and texture on the palate not usually seen in the more pure fruited Mendoza versions. That said, the fruit in this wine too is ripe in expression and there is an identifiable bridge between this and the Mendoza style of malbec. In all, there is quite a lot of interest here.....   "
