2008 Malivoire Old Vines Foch

When we visited Malivoire last August, it was our first stop of the day. Lucky for me as my tastebuds were on full alert when I tried this one…only wish I had bought more!

“Albert’s Honour” is named for Albert Malivoire and this wine is a tribute to his courage during battles as a teenager in WWI.

Dark and inky purple, there’s an old world nose of dark dried fruit, tobacco, and spices like cloves and cinnamon. Super smooth on the palate, there’s a mouthful of fruit and intense spiciness. Light vanilla and tannins disappear in a long powerful finish. Made from 35 yr+ vines. 13% Alcohol. Would pair wonderfully with old cheese or a nice piece of barbecued meat.
