James Suckling 2022

James Suckling has just released his February 2022 Tasting Report for an incredible 1984 wines and this is what he had to say about ours:

“Aromas of cassis and blackberries with hints of walnuts, chocolate and stones. Medium-to full-bodied with fine, chewy tannins and delicious fruit, supported by bright acidity. Still a little tight, yet the finish is smooth and creamy. Try after 2023.”

FABRE MONTMAYOU MALBEC MENDOZA GRAN RESERVA 2019                             92 points
“Dark, smoky character here with notes of spiced plums, blueberry jam, dark chocolate and tar. Medium-to full-bodied, tight and tannic with a deep core of ripe fruit that turns into a savory finish. Drink or hold.”

FABRE MONTMAYOU MALBEC MENDOZA RESERVA 2020                                        92 points
“Ripe dark berries, dark chocolate, licorice and toasted oak. Medium-to full-bodied, firm and structured with ripe berries on the palate and a rich finish with some nutty notes. Try after 2023.”

FABRE MONTMAYOU CABERNET FRANC MENDOZA RESERVA 2020                        90 points
“This shows herbaceous character with notes of berries, currant bush, light spices and cocoa powder. Taut and juicy with a medium body and chewy tannins. The ripe, mellow fruit plays well with the leafy character. Firm finish. Drink or hold.”
