94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: `The 2005 Grand Vin is a blend of 70% Malbec 10% Cabernet Sauvignon 9% Syrah 7% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. It was aged in French oak for 12 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Inky purple the wine has an alluring perfume of wood smoke spice box pencil lead black cherry and black currant. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with an intense attack layers of spicy black fruits licorice and chocolate. All components are nicely integrated and lead to a lengthy pure finish. This Bordeaux-inspired wine should blossom over the next 10-12 years and drink well through 2030. Drink 2018 - 2030. Tanzer: Glass-staining saturated ruby. High-toned slightly medicinal aromas of crushed raspberry chocolate and licorice; showing its oak today. Lush on entry then medicinal and young in the mid-palate with dense dark flavors of blackberry pastille and licorice. Finishes with chewy tannins and excellent length. This impressively constituted malbec gained in s

Seduced by the Mendoza region of Argentina, Bertrand and Jean-Guy Cuvelier planted a vineyard right below the Andes Cordillera. Grapes are hand-picked and aged 12 months in French oak barrels. The Coleccion is a blend of 62% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah, 7% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot.

Tiefes Purpur, fast violett. Rote und schwarze Früchte in der kräftigen Nase, reife Zwetschgen, Gewürzbrot. Weicher Auftakt, Malbec-typische Aromatik mit viel Crèmigkeit, viel Muskelkraft im unglaublich dichten Gaumen, sehr gut eingebettete Tannine, ausgesprochen charmantes und langes Finale.

This Bordeaux-inspired wine should blossom over the next 10-12 years and drink well through 2030.Wine Tasting NotesAn expressive nose of black raspberry, cassis, violet, and sexy oak. Ripe, lush, round, and seamless; wonderfully plump in the middle without being overly sweet. Tannins are fine-grained and the texture is velvety. This finishes with excellent length and a note of medicinal black cherry.
