Argentina's most emblematic red grape variety. Originally from Southwest France, it has found the perfect home in Argentina, where the soil and climate are ideally suited to this variety. It produces very powerful wines with lots of colour.
Most of the Argentinian Malbec comes from Agrelo in the South of Mendoza and from La Consulta that is situated in the South of the Uco Valley.
The French Malbec, 'Cot', comes from our vineyard Chacayes.
Intense purple red colour.
On the attack, red fruits' notes as plums and berries can be tasted. Then, they mix with coffee and vanilla notes coming from the wood. Voluminous, fruity with violet notes. Elegant tannins, the soft notes of the wood can be perceived and it has a persistent ending.
Our vineyard in Argentina has seen a year with rainfall substantially above norms,
due to the phenomenon of La Niña in the Pacific. The red grape harvests began in
early April with the Malbec and finished at the beginning of May with the Cabernet
Sauvignon. Slower ripening enabled us to obtain more flavour and complexity. A
generous vintage, for those who were able to manage it appropriately in both the
vineyard and the winery. Our wines are very well balanced on the palate and offer
powerful aromatic expression. 2013 has been characterized by slow ripening and low yields in our vineyards (as has been the case everywhere in the Mendoza region), which suggests that the wines will be of excellent quality.
