Petit Jammes, Malbec, Cahors 2020
Crammed full of ripe blackberry and red autumnal fruit Petit Jammes offers a medium-bodied easily approachable palate.
Vinified for a long time on the skins, and fermentation is rigorously temperature-controlled in order to preserve a maximum of fruit. The wine is then aged for 8-10 months in stainless steel vats. The resulting style is very much an expressive, exuberant fruit-forward rendition of Malbec.

You need much courage to plant and create a vineyard. Bernard Pons, founder and previous owner of Château Pech de Jammes, possessed it in abundance. Engaged by the French resistance at the tender age of 17, he later became a politician and was a minister in various cabinet posts in the 1970’s and the 1980’s.
In May 1972 he was even given the honourable responsibility by the French President to chaperone Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth II during her official visit to France that year.
On this occasion Her Majesty was reminded of Pons’s resistance heroics following which she bestowed upon him the Victoria Cross. Is it the trust and confidence of this royal rencontre which gave him the courage and determination on his return to Cahors to plant a vineyard at his château? He was helped in this endeavour by his friend of the renaissance of the Cahors appellation. We will never know for sure, but it is entirely plausible that his steadfastness was encouraged further by his lengthy and involved private discussion with The Queen.
