*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price discount' for each bottle. Free mainland delivery for all orders over £100.

(16.5% alcohol): Full, bright ruby. Pungent aromas of crushed blueberry, blackberry, licorice and mint. Dense, concentrated and sweet, displaying impressive chocolaty depth to the intense, saline flavors of blackberry, fig and spicy oak. Finishes with big, tongue-dusting tannins, strong oakiness and a distinct warmth. A bit unwieldy with alcohol and medicinal in the early going, this Malbec still needs time to absorb some of its baby fat and powerful, oak-driven tannins.

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.
