Malbec

Malbec is a red grape variety, originally from southwestern France, which has become the flagship grape of Argentinian wines. The grapes tend to have an inky dark colour and robust tannins, with relatively low acidity. Long known as one of the six grapes allowed in the blend of red Bordeaux wine, it is still used there in small amounts, but the French plantations of Malbec are found primarily in Cahors, in the French South West, with smaller amounts also found in surrounding southwestern appellations (Bergerac, Côtes du Marmandais...), as well as in the Loire, where it is known as Côt. However, Argentina now has over three times more acres of malbec planted than France does, and most people around the world now know the grape in the oaky, ripe and rich style made in this South American country.
