GRAND MALBEC

2015 Cuvelier los Andes

IN STOCK
Grapes Malbec
Colour Red
Origin Argentina, Mendoza
ABV 15%

From Bordeaux's Cuvelier family this Grand Malbec is their boldest expression of the local variety here in the Uco Valley, Argentina. It is a selection of their most beautiful Malbec grapes, barrel-fermented and aged in new barrels for 18 months. Grand Malbec has an outstanding concentration that will surprise you with its balance and ageing potential. A must for all Malbec fans. Sophisticated stuff. L&S (Feb 2021)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Bright medium ruby. Brooding aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice pastille and bitter chocolate accented by fresh herbs. Juicy, suave and penetrating, conveying a captivating restrained sweetness to its blackberry, mulberry and spice flavors. Savory minerality energizes the middle palate and extends the finish. Perhaps a touch more inky and less sweet than the 2015 Grand Vin but very sophisticated in an Old World way, and suave and very long on the back end. Terrific subtle salinity throughout.

There’s quite a ripe edge to the nose here with a dark-cherry and plum-conserve thread, as well as cedary oak, beef stock and an array of freshly ground baking spices. The palate has a strong, sinewy texture with a wealth of concentrated blackberries and blackcurrants. Long, bold and smooth finish. Drink or hold.

Rich, heady and intense, with aromas of Asian spices and dried herbs. This bold, strapping Malbec is aged in 100% new oak and has succulent fig and mulberry flavours, firm tannins and enough acidity for balance and further ageing in bottle. Rating: 93 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (Feb 2019)

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.
