We've gone through most of the case already. I just have one question. How is this wine so cheap? This Malbec, based on what my wife and I are tasting, is worth about $18 a bottle. We've given up on everything under $15 recently because those are all thin and simple. This is rich and deep – and ridiculously CHEAP. How do you do this? My wife wants more.
Wineaccess introduced us to Malbec this year. We like it better than Cab Sauv. One must let it aerate for four hours or more, however, to enjoy the fullness.
Jay's Review of Fabre
As always wine Access has done it again! MMMM....Good!
2009 Reserve Malbec
On opening, found wine to be a bit closed off although still quite drinkable. After decanting, it really opened up and was very enjoyable. Lots of black fruit with a hint of oak. After letting it breathe, this wine was open and smooth.
Good but the 2008 was better!
Great with a steak!
We love this Malbec. It is wonderful with steak or a big bowl of pasta. Deep, rich flavor at a wonderful price.
Well done Wine Access!
Can't go wrong with Fabre Montmayou in my book
A great well balanced deep ruby red malbec, would make a great house wine. This nice soft wine is dense and combines a fruity bouquet with a smooth finish. A fantastic value. I've purchased 3 or 4 different malbec's from this winery and haven't been disappointed.
Bottle 4 -- Malbec Reserva Mendoza
Very good wine.
Of the 50 some bottles I have acquired from wineaccess.com this is by far the best value. It is as good as other wines double and triple this price. I think it better, for example, than the Tikal Malbec that I paid more than twice the price for.
Buy it by the case and serve as your house wine. You will not regret it.
I was blown away!!
Had my first bottle last night and I was wowed by the color and taste!! It did get better as the night went on! Bought a second case on todays listing!!!
2009 Fabre Montmayou Malbec Reserva
Very nice for a decent price.. Would recommend
A Malbec Celebration!
Our family enjoyed the Reserve with our Beef Wellington on Christmas. Intense complex flavor. Crisp on the sides of the tongue with an interesting and enjoyable mellow memory on the back. Tried a bottle of the Barrel Selection, which tasted more vibrant and concentrated. Also excellent. An interesting comparison. We decided to age it for a year or two to see what develops. We became fans of Malbec on a trip to Argentina and Patagonia three years ago and are pleased to find it becoming increasingly more available in the U.S. Before the Fabre Montmayou, Norton's Malbec has been our choice.
2007 was much better. Hope it will age better.
Great color and if you open and let it breathe for a short period the flavor really comes out. Excellent value for the price.
Fabre Montmayou Malbec Reserva
Good bottle for the price, rich color and mouth-feel, though the finish is a little sharper than we expected. We found it interesting that the second glass was better than the first.
A decent Malbec
The review led me to expect more, but I can't say it's a bad Malbec, just nothing exceptional. I guess it's a $12.50 Malbec.
tasting of '09 montmayou malbec reserve
Very good malbec. should allow quite a bit of time for wine to open
