2016 Bodegas Caro
|Grapes||Malbec, Cab Sauv|
A classically Rothschild dry restraint in the handling of this wine cannot disguise its South American ripeness and spicy density, but it does make it more intriguing, better-balanced than the vast majority of South American Malbec-Cabernet blends, and it seems more like a Ferrari of a claret. Drinking range: 2019 - 2025 L&S (Feb 2019)
*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.
Started in 1993, Bodegas Caro is a joint venture between Catena and Domaines Baron de Rothschild. Christian le Sommer (ex Chateau Latour) is in charge of the winemaking. This is South American wine in a revolutionary style that is altogether more appetising than the norm.
Everyone's favourite grape variety, these days, seems to be Malbec. It's easy to see why, especially as the Argentinians have crafted a bright bold and flavoursome style out of the grape variety that Bordeaux forgot. In this case you will find a quartet of very typical Mendoza Malbecs, including one from master wine maker Nicolas Catena with his slightly more subtle take on pure Malbec. And whilst Bordeaux may have (mostly) cast off Malbec, it still hangs on in the Cahors region of South West France from where we have included a brace of fine examples.
