Bright full ruby. Strong oak tones to the aromas of black raspberry, blueberry, plum, exotic spices and graphite minerality. Plush, pliant and sweet; more open-knit than the 2012 but then this is two years older. A bit more exotic, figgy and liqueur-like, finishing with big, ripe, palate-saturating tannins and excellent dark berry persistence. I find the tannins of the 2012 Grand Vin to be more refined, even if the wine is younger.

The Cuvelier family were selling wines to the good folk of Northern France in the early years on the nineteenth Century. In 1903, with the purchase of the St Estèphe estate of Château le Crock, they moved into château ownership, crowning their move in 1920 by buying Château Leoville Poyferré. In the 1990s the family spread their wings all the way to Mendoza, initially working with Michel Rolland on his Clos de la Siete project. But, in 1999, they started to plant their own vineyards - Cuvelier los Andes - and began producing wine in 2003. Michel Rolland dutifully oversees winemaking, and spare grapes are still sold off to Clos de la Siete.
