In the late 1950s, Moët & Chandon, a subsidiary of LVMH, sent Renaud Poirier, its Oenology Director, to Latin America to research the region’s potential for world-class wine production. After traveling around the region, Poirier visited Luján de Cuyo, in Mendoza. Highly impressed by the local conditions for winemaking and the presence of excellent high elevation vineyards, Poirier and Moët & Chandon decided to set up its first ever vineyards outside France. After decades of experiencing with sparkling wines production, in 1999, Moët Hennessy Wine Estates and Bodegas Chandon Argentina opened Terrazas de los Andes Winery - a varietal still-wines initiative based on its emblematic high-elevation vineyards, fed by the Andes meltwater.

Wonderful wine. Generally I don't like Malbecs but this was nice. Dark red fruit, some oak and cinnamon on nose. Oak, mild tannin, spice and dark fruit taste. Layers and complex ... great value.

I enjoyed this. Smokey, Currants and a little spice in the finish. I bit too much alcohol taste in the initial glass but mellowed out as it aired. Rich dark color. Loved the color and a smooth medium to light tannin level.

A big smooth mouthful of smokey cassis. Designed for grilled beef but lovely by itself.

Lush and forward, with a well-rounded texture and sweet fig, raspberry and blackberry flavors. A floral hint chimes in on the finish. Drink now through 2009.

Based on over 45 years of research and experimentation with local microclimates and terrain, each selected terrace has been matched with a unique varietal to express its maximum potential. Developed with extensive focus on vineyard management, and only released during excellent vintages, these wines stand out for their aromatic intensity and complex style.

Quite juicy, with raspberry, cassis and briar notes riding over fresh acidity through a bouncy dark fruit- and spice-filled finish. Drink now through 2010.

Deep medium ruby. Dark cherry, licorice, menthol, nuts, chocolate and a whiff of raisin on the nose. Supple and fine-grained with a distinctly dry character to its very ripe, port-like flavors of dark berries, licorice and herbs. A rather uncompromising style of malbec with plenty of ripe acidity but in need of a bit more sweetness of fruit. Finishes with fine tannins and a sappy black cherry flavor.
