GRAND MALBEC

2013 Cuvelier los Andes

Grapes Malbec
Colour Red
Origin Argentina, Mendoza
ABV 15.5%

(15.5% alcohol; aged for 18 months in 100% new French oak): Bright, saturated ruby. Blackberry, licorice and menthol on the nose, complemented by cedary oak and a pungent mineral quality. Extremely smooth in texture but youthfully brooding, with inky black fruit and medicinal menthol dominating today. This structured, backward wine has a firm tannic spine that calls for another year or two of cellaring. Classically dry and saline, it doesn't quite come alive today but it possesses bulletproof fruit for the future. Became a bit creamier with 24 hours in the recorked bottle, suggesting that cellaring may bring more pliancy. Drinking range: 2018 - 2024 Rating: 91+ Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com (Jul 2017)

Cuvelier los Andes

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.
