Cuvée rated 92/100 by our Committee!

Wine:

A pure Malbec from the Mendoza region, from plots at an altitude of almost 1000 meters, the 2021 red Mendoza Malbec is a wine of great temperance. Carried by aromas of black fruits and spices, with a hint of graphite, a beautiful freshness and some delicately smoky nuances, it finds a perfect echo on the palate. Its balance, restrained tannins and long, suave persistence make for an elegant, perfectly digestible wine that's pleasant in all circumstances. Rated 93/100 by the Committee.
