Cuvelier Los Andes Malbec is a beautiful red wine gem from Mendoza. 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. The agreement between Bertrand and Jean-Guy Cuvelier was symbolically signed in the great office of their common ancestor, Henri Cuvelier, in Lille-Haubourdin, in the north of France. Since then, the Winery has been built and each year the vines of Cuvelier Los Andes have contributed 50% of their production to Clos de Los Siete, the wine signed by Michel Rolland. The success of this wine is worldwide due to the exceptional value for money it offers.
"Bright medium ruby. Vibrant, penetrating aromas of blackberry, black cherry, violet and bitter chocolate; an essence of Malbec. Dense and seamless but youthful and light on its feet, showing lovely restrained sweetness but noteworthy thickness and depth to its pure, vibrant flavors of crushed dark berries and bitter chocolate. This suave, concentrated Malbec should open out beautifully with a few years of cellaring. Finishes with firm, ripe tannins and excellent sneaky length and energy. This is an awfully good value."--Stephen Tanzer, March/2016, Vinous, 90 points!
