Malbec, a grape variety that is now almost synonymous with Argentinian wine, is originally from France. Though some people speculate that the grape variety originates from Burgundy, it was planted widely throughout France until the middle of the 20th century.

Historically the grape is associated with Bordeaux, where it was commonly used as a blending grape. However, many people would agree that the most famous expression of the Malbec comes from Cahors, which requires a minimum of 70% Malbec in their wines.

Though susceptible to frost, Malbec is a hearty grape variety that will grow almost anywhere, which is why it has been planted in so many different regions. Malbec is planted in climates ranging from the cool Loire to the heat of the Languedoc. As it has moved from place to place, Malbec has accumulated (some estimate) over 400 different names. The most common synonyms for Malbec are Auxerrois (not related to Pinot Auxerois Blanc) and Cot. Cot is still commonly used as a name for Malbec in the South of France.

For the La Rousse Malbec, importer Patrick Allen teamed up with the talented oenologist, Pierrick Harang, to create a wine that is a balanced, and authentic expression of this extraordinary grape variety.
