Château Paillas in Chicago

logo samswineIf you are in Illinois state, you can now find the Château Paillas in Chicago.
The vintage 2005 is available in the Chicago shops of Sam's wine or on its website www.samswine.com

"A winter-weight red. Inky blue/garnet color, deep scents of cherry, stones and mineral. Big palate, with chewy tannins and delicious blueberry and cassis fruit underneath. Long on the finish."

With a score of 89/100, our Cahors wine ranks among the best Malbec for sale.

wine woman & song

wine woman and song blogDo you know Nick Cave? He's a big star with his band, The Bad Seeds and sung in a duet with Kylie Minogue in 1995. But what's the issue between Nick Cave and Château Paillas ? Let's see with that blog that I found on the web, a great blog by Juel M. Darkly pairing wines, women and songs : Wine Woman & Song.

The dark and romantic side of Nick Cave suggested Juel to recommend Château paillas vintage 2002 (Classic Malbec aroma with spicy black fruit) to the artist: "Some wines aspire to ring-tones, these wines are epic ballads. They take some time to yield in the glass, they are not instant and fun, you could say they are gruff and unfriendly; but once the story in the glass unfolds, it’s worth the wait."
