This is 100% Malbec, and it's a perfect vin de soif—a wine meant to be drunk young, chilled and without a whole lot of contemplation. It might be the most unique French Malbec you've had, and it might be the most delicious, too. From soils of limestone and fermented and aged in cement, this is a light, juicy and fresh accompaniment to bistro dishes of roast chicken, hanger steak or a burger.

What importer Bowler Wine has to say about this wine...

100% Malbec (aka Auxerrois in local parlance). The fruit for Pur comes from seven different Combel sites totalling 8.5 hectares around their home village of Cournou, which lies on the Causse, a limestone plateau in Cahors at 320m elevation. Planted on clay-limestone soils, the vines are certified-organic, average 35 years old and are kept to a modest 45 hl/ha yield. The grapes are hand-harvested and crushed with 20% whole clusters; the juice ferments at cool temperatures with indigenous yeasts in cement tanks with a 10-day skin maceration. The wine is aged on its lees in cement through the winter and bottled in the spring. Pur Fruit is Combel's "entry-level" red, made in a fruit-forward, more approachable style than most Cahors on the market, as well as more than Combel's other wines (except arguably their carbonically-macerated Carbo). Bottled in November 2016; 4100 cases produced, accounting for approximately half of the estate's output.
