Cuvelier Los Andes Coleccion 2010

Sku: 041094

The Cuvelier family is famous for being proud owners ofChâteau Léoville-Poyferré and Château Le Crock in Bordeaux since the early 1900’s. In 1998 Bertrand Cuvelier made the happy choice of personally accompanying Michel Rolland in his great Argentine project, which was to become the Clos de Los Siete group. Three years later, Jean-Guy Cuvelier decided to join his cousin Bertrand in the joint aim of building a Winery and producing fine wines worthy of the family tradition.
Cuvelier Los Andes Collection is one of the jewels of the winery in Mendoza. Made with 100% Malbec sourced from plots in Valle de Uco, Vista Flores and Tanuyán. The nose opens up with seductive dark fruit, plums, black cherries & cassis. Under layers of dark chocolate, smooth textured & lingering nuances of blackberry transport you to a long & lingering finish.

 Wine Spectator 91 points (Oct 31 2013)
Polished and well-structured, this red offers fine tannins and fresh acidity supporting notes of pure cassis and black cherry puree. Spice, mineral and dark tobacco hints add range to the finish. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2016. -NW
 Vinous 90 points (Mar 2013)
Medium red-ruby. Aromatic, expressive nose offers blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and a touch of violet. Juicy and tightly wound but still pliant, with lovely energy and shape to the flavors of dark berries, dark chocolate and licorice. Finishes fresh and ripely tannic, with a youthfully medicinal quality to the lingering black fruit and licorice flavors. This very promising wine needs a few years in bottle to soften. 90+ Points
