This is the greatest Cheval des Andes ever. The integration of fruit, tannins and acidity is fantastic. Full-bodied, tight and solid with beautiful depth and integrity. Extremely long and exciting. Complex and compelling. Available in September 2020. Better after 2024. ~100 James Suckling, #9 Top 100 of 2020
In 1999, Château Cheval Blanc started a joint venture with Terrazas de Los Andes and Cheval des Andes was born. Since then, a predominantly Malbec, Bordeaux-style blend has become the signature of Cheval des Andes and highlighted as one of Argentina's premiere wines! The wine of Cheval des Andes combines the vibrant and intense expression of Argentinian Malbec with the rigor, elegance, and savoir-faire of a great Bordeaux. These wines are elegant, meaning they are the most refined expression of the terroir of Mendoza.
Red Wine. In the glass, the wine is an intense red with purple hints. The nose showcases a very intense aromatic expression. A bouquet of aromas jump out the glass: cherry, wild strawberries, and spices. On the palate, the the wine is balanced. A supple and fresh attack add a liveliness. Soft, precise tannins bring an attractive structure with an elegant finish.
