Ruca Malen's dream began in 1998, when Jean Pierre Thibaud and Jacques Louis de Montalembert discovered, in one of their meetings, that they shared the same dream: starting their own winery in Mendoza, a winemaker's paradise at the foot of the Andes range. By that time, Jean Pierre had left the chairmanship of Bodegas Chandon in Argentina, after 10 years of service and Jacques Louis had forged an outstanding career in the winemaking industry in his hometown, Burgundy. From them on, Bodega Ruca Malen would be exclusively focused on making wines of excellence, based on their knowledge and, above all, their passion for winemaking. Some time after that meeting, Bodega Ruca Malen produced its first bottling: the 1999 vintage. From its very onset, Ruca Malen has been committed to enological quality, which translates into wines with style, elegance and distinction. – Description from dvoristanac
