Beschreibung

- 98 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: „This is a plush, rich Cheval with blueberry and floral aromas and flavors. HInts of tar and fresh lavender. Full body. The depth and richness are impressive, as are the ripe yet fresh tannins. Very long and structured, yet controlled and in balance. This will be a great wine indeed. Release in September 2021. Drink after 2023.“

- 98 Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE; Luis Gutierrez: „The 2018 Cheval des Andes is a blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon fermented in small lots in 3,000- to 8,000-liter tanks and matured 40% in 225-liter oak barrels, 40% in 400-liter oak barrels and the remaining 20% in 2,500-liter oak vats for 13 months. Ninety percent of the oak used was French and the rest a blend of Austrian, Slovenian and German oak, 50% of it new. 2018 has been one of the best vintages in recent times in Mendoza, and the wine shows it. It's a cooler vintage, and the wine has improved in freshness and elegance without losing any clout. It's 14.5% alcohol and has a pH of 3.73. This is young, juicy, elegant and balanced and still has some herbal and toasted notes; it's medium to full-bodied, with the creamy and luxurious texture of the modern Bordeaux, ultra fine tannins and a long, dry and precise finish. It's still undeveloped and seems to have all the components and the balance between them for a long and positive development in bottle. With wines like this, I sometimes wish I had a time machine so I could see them in 20 years from now... I think this is the finest Cheval des Andes I've ever tasted. 100,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2020.“

 

- 96 Punkte VINOUS, Joaquin Hidalgo: „The 2018 Cheval Des Andes is a blend of 70% Malbec – half from Las Compuertas and half from Paraje Altamira – and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon from Las Compuertas. It was aged in barrels and foudres, 50% in new oak. Purplish res in the glass. It shows an expressively complex nose of plum, cherry and hints of spice pepper, ink, blackberry and blackcurrant. The oak provides a profound and subtle backdrop of sweet spice. In the mouth, it’s viscous and broad with a little juice, velvety in texture and with very fine tannins. The finish is long-lasting with a satisfying feel. A relaxed, delicate, extremely well-balanced wine with a more generous core than the 2017 vintage.“

 

- 96 Punkte DECANTER, Amanda Barnes: „The finest vintage of Cheval des Andes to date. Sensual notes of ripe red berry fruits interplay with wild herbs, graphite and a hint of violet. A fine texture with great length expressing the concentration of fruit from Las Compuertas and freshness of fruit from Altamira. A great show of the increasing elegance in the modern vintages of this top estate in Argentina. Drinking Window 2022 – 2040“

Notizen des Weinguts: Cheval des Andes, the ‘Grand Cru’ of the Andes, is the fruit of a fusion between two cultures combining the vision and expertise of Château Cheval Blanc with high altitude wine-growing in the Mendoza region. Under challenging climatic conditions, this is where Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon unite in a blend which is born at the foot of the Andes mountain range. CLIMATIC CONDITIONS The 2018 vintage was a classic for Mendoza, characterised by sunny, hot days with low humidity. Rainfall in December and January meant that hydric stress was minimal during the summer and low rainfall in February and March contributed to the healthy condition of the bunches. Significant thermal amplitude during this period created perfect conditions for producing quality grapes. THE GROWTH CYCLE The phenolic cycle began in the first week of September with the bleeding of the vine shoots and followed its course steadily… Thanks to the vagaries of the weather, bud burst was later than in previous vintages and this affected the yield in some sectors of our Las Compuertas estate. Even so, after veraison, the maximum diurnal temperature increased bringing about fast and well-balanced maturation. As a result, the window for harvesting was short and dry and the grapes in all varietals were of excellent quality and health. HARVEST: 12 March to 4 April. YIELD: 35 qq/h WORK IN THE WINERY The grapes were transported in 20 kg boxes protected by thermal covers to the winery where they were meticulously and manually preserved in cold room. Then, a precise sorting was carried out. Our work in the winery respects the origin of each parcel following the principle of ‘one parcel, one tank’. These have a capacity of between 30-80 hl. Following this, we begin the vinification process with the least possible intervention. The ageing process is carried in 40% 225 litre Bordeaux barrels, 40% 400 litre barrels with the remaining 20% in 2,500 litre foudres, 50% of which are new oak. In the 2018 vintage, our barrel park was made up of 85% French oak and 15% blend of Austrian, Slovenian and German oak. TASTING NOTE CHEVAL DES ANDES 2018 Intense and shiny ruby red colour. The first nose is filled with fresh red and black fruits, such as cherry and plum. Then, subtle and elegant notes of liquorice and vanilla develop from delicate integration with the oak. On the palate, a soft and supple attack quickly develops into ample structure and personality. A long and flattering finish invites you to continue discovering this wine.
