Family-owned since 1898, the vineyard was gradually expanded and became the principal activity of the Couderc family in 1985. High up on the plateau de Pujols, a rocky outcrop overlooking the Dordogne Valley and facing the slopes of Saint Emilion, are the constructions of five successive generations. The entire estate has been modernised and the vineyard is run with passion and painstaking care by Mr Couderc senior, aided, since 1997, by his son Julien, a qualified viticulturist and oenologist.

Don't let the word ‘mutated’ put you off - the grape vines tendency to mutate is one of the reasons we have such an incredible array of grape varieties to choose from.
Sweet greengage and brighter citrus notes are to the fore but there's peach and richer tropical flavours lurking in the background to. Light oak ageing has given the wine a creamy edge and a very delicate spice character, without being overtly oaky.Bodegas Manzanos

Despacito Malbec (Despacito. Slowly) is from vineyards at the foot of the Andes Mountains, cooler temperatures at these higher altitudes provide the ideal conditions for a slower maturation and a perfect ripeness.

This young Malbec opens up with bags of bright, red fruit flavours which initially emphasise the cruncy youthfulness of the fruit before rapidly broadening and softening on the palate. A really approachable wine which turns out to be dangerously drinkable - one bottle is unlikely to be enough.
