Review: *** $ Vivre Sa Vie Malbec et Merlot, France, 2015 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for French Malbec and Merlot.

Original tasting and review : This is Vivre Sa Vie Malbec et Merlot, France, 2015, finished at 13% alcohol and first sampled two years from vintage date, in March, 2017. Is is from producer Georges Vigouroux.

Inspired by this wine: Busy day at work, glad the factory bell is just now ringing at 5. 

In the glass: Deep magenta, almost opaque at the center.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows a brambly, blackberry-infused tautness. From the aroma, seems like this will be bright and perhaps challenging.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact bright and structured as expected, but with a rounder middle of solid mixed dark berry fruit.  Finishes clean and crisp.

In summary: Overall, just touches three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  Best value at bargain price point.
