How it's made

Caladoc is a 1958 cross of Grenache and Malbec which tends to make full-bodied, deeply colored and robust wines. It also has the advantage over Grenache in that it suffers less from coulure. Marselan, a 1961 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, brings good depth of color too, appealing aromas and on the palate a structure of supple tannins. Paired with some Grenache, you have the encépagment which makes Domaine Pontbriand.
