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.

  • Terrazas Altos del Plata Malbec 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Sabor relativamente áspero, onde o teor alcoólico se sobressai; levemente seco, com discretos taninos ao final. Read More

  • Terrazas de Los Andes Malbec Reserva 2006

    Snoothrank:

    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. Read More

  • Terrazas de Los Andes Single Vineyard las Compuertas Malbec 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Loved this wine! Fantastic nose that is so inviting with slight earth intertwined with dark berry. Smooth medium bodied mouthfeel with incredible balance. Layers of flavor with hints of herb and plum with mature tannins. Herbal finish leaving you wanting more. Read More

  • Terrazas de Los Andes Malbec Reserva 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Ripe plum and black cherry flavors abound, mixed with the tiniest hint of ammonia in the nose, which subsides quickly. The wine is still rather tannic, but the rough structure and seemingly endless finish suggest it will improve with a few more years. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=514) Read More

  • Terrazas de Los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Light, bright, and slightly acidic for a cabernet, with one of the cleanest finishes in this uneven vintage. (AV 85, http://argovino.com/?p=260) Read More

  • Terrazas de Los Andes Malbec Alto de Mendoza 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Pleasing red cherry aroma with a little sea air in the background, then sweet, bracing red fruits with a final note of brown toast. The flavor may get lost when pitted against strong cheeses or other sharp tastes. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=458) Read More

  • Terrazas de Los Andes Single Vineyard las Compuertas Malbec 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Brilliant color in good sunlight. Ruby leaning to purple. It's Malbec all the way on the nose. Very plummy and woody. Plum and black/blue berry skin, along with rich wood, some earth, char and iron aromas. Richly aromatic fruit with crushed, macerated and liquered blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry and marionberry. Rich and thick on the pa... Read More

  • Terrazas de Los Andes Single Vineyard las Compuertas Malbec 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Nose is dominated by toasted oak, herbs, cinnamon, chocolate. Black fruit forwardness on the body. Smooth finish. Read More

  • Terrazas de Los Andes Single Vineyard las Compuertas Malbec 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Very powerful black fruited wine, needs some decanting time and is terrific with food, especially a hard cheese that can match the strength. Read More
