There is many versions on the origins of Malbec, although everyone agrees that it has its origins in France, in the Bourdeux region, crib for great “red wines”. There it received the name that later arrived in our country. In the french region of Turena, it is known as Cot, and in Cahors it is called Auxerrois.
There are those who believe that the name “Malbec” comes from the last name of a hungarian winemaker who spread the grape in France and from there, to other european regions.
It arrived at our latitudes in the mid 19th century, with the agronomist Michel Aime Pouget, which together with other european immigrants founded the argentine wine industry with the varietals they brought from their countries.
Originally from the south east of France, it is the red varietal which has best adapted to the argentine soil, producing exceptional wines.
Of intense aromas, deep concentrated purple color and pleasant taste. With out a doubt Argentina produces the best Malbecs in the world.
Produced as young wines, with fresh red fruity aromas; it is cultivated in all the wine producing regions of the country, giving its best exponents in the province of Mendoza in the regions of Lujan de Cuyo and Maipu.
With Malbec as a standard and emblematic varietal, Argentina achieves an important growth in the international market and earns a space between the best wines in the world.
