Clos Triguedina, Probus 2016
About The ProducerIn the 3rd century, Probus was a Roman emperor who allowed winegrowers to plant vineyards once more in Quercy. As a tribute, Jean Baldès created the first 100% Malbec in 1976. This prestigious pure Malbec cuvée is the finest expression of Cahors wines and a reference for the Malbec grape. Rich, dense yet elegant, Probus is a landmark in the region.
