Cuvelier Los Andes Grand Vin Mendoza - Argentinian red wine, The Wine Advocate rating 93 points

Grand Vin is our “First Label”. We like to introduce our Grand Vin as the Argentinean cousin of Château Léoville-Poyferré, 2nd Grand Cru Classé from Saint-Julien, our family’s most renowned Estate in Bordeaux, France. Grand Vin is an exceptional Bordeaux-style blend, with an impressive tannic structure from our best Malbec, rounded, balanced and completed with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot.

The 2009 Grand Vin is a barrel selection of the best of the varietals. It raises the level of quality with its already complex perfume, plush personality, and great depth of flavor.

Cuvelier Los Andes is owned by Bertrand and Jean-Guy Cuvelier, part-owners of renowned Bordeaux Chateau Leoville-Poyferre in Saint Julien. The estate is located in the Uco Valley at the foothills of the Andes and encompasses 115 acres of still young vines. The consulting winemaker is Michel Rolland.

post ferment maceration until reaching the 30 or 40 days that
is required to complete the total process.

mineral side. The wine is flattering and powerful on the palate. It offers round and velvety tannins. Its finish is persistent.
