Gran Malbec 2013, Flechas de Los Andes, Argentina

£23.95

This wine is the result of a collaboration between Baron Edmond de Rothschild and Laurent Dassault, both of which have strong links to Bordeaux. The vineyard was planted in 1999 at the base of the Andes in Vista Flores. This is perfect terrior for the production of world class Malbec. Gran Malbec has just received 92/100 by the renowned critic James Suckling.

Tasting notes

This is an inky and incredibly intense Malbec, characters which are evident on both the palate and nose. After aeration the nose reveals notes of blackberry liqueur, roasted coffee, vanilla, crushed flowers and minerals. The tannins are sweet yet fairly prominent, so it is advised that you give this wine an hour or two in a decanter and serve with a protein rich dish. The fruit on the palate is incredibly dense and concentrated. This is serious Malbec that demands your attention, and one that should grace the dinner table – and maybe not the lunch table due to its rather generous levels of alcohol.
