100% Malbec (aka Auxerrois in local parlance).  The fruit for Pur comes from seven different Combel sites totalling 8.5 hectares around their home village of Cournou, which lies on the Causse, a limestone plateau in Cahors at 320m elevation. Planted on clay-limestone soils, the vines are certified-organic, average 35 years old and are kept to a modest 45 hl/ha yield. The grapes are hand-harvested and crushed with 20% whole clusters; the juice ferments at cool temperatures with indigenous yeasts in cement tanks with a 10-day skin maceration. The wine is aged on its lees in cement through the winter and bottled in the spring.

Pur Fruit is Combel's "entry-level" red, made in a fruit-forward, more approachable style than most Cahors on the market, as well as more than Combel's other wines (except arguably their carbonically-macerated Carbo). 

A vibrant fruit-bomb showing a deep red/black color with aromas of ripe blackberry liqueur with violet and citrus hints. The palate is supple and sappy with dense blackberry and black raspberry fruit, lifted by bright acidity - quite lush and ripe but at only 12.5% alcohol it's refreshing and balanced. The cool, sappy fruits continue in the bright finish. Perfect with a steak or stew or just gulped by itself  - serve cool and enjoy!
