Château Roland La Garde - Original Malbec
Malbec is a traditional variety forgotten in the region of Blaye because to difficult to maitain quality. Yet it is this same grape that allowed us a few times to make unique wines. Atypical wines and really different from the rest of our range. Beautiful wine for the tasting with enormous potential for keeping.
