Bit of a hunk this. Oodles of fruit wrapped in vanilla oak
There's no question that this is Malbec wine but there is a smattering of other grape varieties in here too: Cabernet Sauvignon (5%), Merlot (5%) & Shiraz (5%) which adds additional substance to the wine. Aged for ten months in solely French oak (rather than a combination of American and French), which is generally accepted to deliver a more finesse and subtle flavouring and this works well in this wine which is fantastically intense and has flavours of black fruits, spice, caramel, chocolate, liquorice, fig and much more besides. (IWC Gold 2007 Vintage)
"There's nothing shy and retiring about this opulent, powerful Argentinian Malbec whose robust blackberry richness infused with dark chocolate and spicy oak make for an impressive red that might be overwhelming if it weren't for the damsony acidity derived from its the high altitude vineyards of Tupungato in Mendoza's Uco Valley." 89/100 The Wine Gang - April 2011 (2010 Vintage)
Frenchman Jean Bousquet travelled thousands of miles to find his 'optimum' vineyard location. In Mendoza, Argentina he found a site with, in his words 'idyllic wine-growing precipitation and temperatures, mild during the day and cool at night… situated at a good altitude (1,200 metres above sea level), with fresh air, few funguses, and very permeable sandy and rocky soils… these great attributes give the grapes the possibility to attain an optimum maturation without the risk of rotting and without having to use fungicides'. These perfect conditions combined with knowledge passed down through three winemaking generations makes for wines of exceptional quality.
