"Our Malbec in 2017 was awesome, it usually gives the spice, "Pierre Seillan told me during the tasting of the 2017s with his daughter and one day successor, Helene. "But this year, we did not need it. The alcohol is only 14.2% this year. It has the energy, the minerality. I think it will age for 40 years at least. I think it is the best I have made."
