2017 Cuvelier los Andes
|Grapes||Syrah, Merlot, Malbec, Cab Sauv|
A beautiful red with a solid core of blackberry, blueberry and blackcurrant. Some dark chocolate and toasted oak, too. It’s full-bodied, yet compact and tight. Sold and very structured. Lots of white pepper and cloves at the end. 74% malbec, 15% cabernet sauvignon, 5% merlot and 6% petit verdot. Very attractive now, but needs at least another two or three years to soften. Rating: 95 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (Mar 2021)

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.
