A true French classic - the Languedoc has long been associated with Malbec. In its home it was originally known as Côt and it was an important component in red wine blends. Oeil de Perdrix was another name used in France and the label plays on that association - Perdrix Solitaire, translated as Solitary Partridge, represents the fact that this is 100% Malbec; a wine to appreciate for its difference.

The grapes come from old vines grown in the warm Mediterranean, tempered by the high altitude and the cooler nights thanks to elevation and proximity to the Pyrenees; ideal conditions for longer, slower ripening which results in a finer profile than Malbec grown in warmer climates. This old vine Malbec was sourced by Guillaume from the wild mountain landscape of the Aude and just a ‘drop’ of Malbec from the lower hills of Minervois is also added. The vineyards in the Aude are located up in the Pyrenees at 400m.

The wine has a vibrant garnet colour with notes of mulberry and underlying redcurrant and blackcurrant aromas.

This is complex, with fine raspberry and red-fruit flavours backed by a touch of chocolate truffle richness. A mid-weight harmonious wine, an expression of purity and youthful fruitiness.

Delicious with steak and meats from the grill. It works with seared tuna, too.

More Information



Malbec is a tale of two worlds - the old and the new. Malbec has become synonomous with Argentinia where the high altitude vineyards produce delicate, floral Malbec.

Yet, as with many things vinous, the grape came from France (where it was known as Côt or Auxxerois). Used in blends, including in Bordeaux, it's best known French expression is in Cahors.
