- Guy and Cédric Allion of Domaine du Haut Perron have 23 hectares of vines on the wonderfully exposed slopes of the Chers right bank in the Loire Touraine Appellation. The soils here are clay and limestone embedded with flint which is known as Perruches in the area. These flint deposits give their wines their trademark crisp minerality.
The Domaine practice a sustainable viticulture, looking to the long-term wellbeing of their terroir. They use traditional techniques and organic fertilisers alongside careful observation of the vines to ensure healthy and good quality grapes are produced.
This Malbec, described as Côt by Guy Allion is a prime example of the grape variety from it's French roots.
Powerful aromas of red fruits and dark fruits fill the nose. Full bodied with a well balanced acidity, there are flavours of raspberry, plum and blackberry to be found well integrated tannins stay in the mouth with the finish.

- Food match:
Lighter red meat with sauces - the wine's good acidity cuts perfectly through creamy sauces and makes for a very good harmonious match.
