Tasting Note: The 2011 Grand Vin is the top wine, a blend of majority Malbec from Vistalba, with a little Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to add complexity. It is from an old Malbec vineyard planted in 1908, where 15 hectares were the heart and the beginning of the project. They select their best wines, vinified separately to create this cuvee. The wine is aged for 16-18 months in barrique, they like to do malolactic in the following spring to be able to work with the lees during the winter. This is again a serious, elegant red, with clean, delineated aromas, very good balance between fruit, spice and well-integrated oak, with a mineral sensation. The palate is medium to full-bodied. Powerful but sleek, very balanced and classy, with pungent flavors and well-integrated alcohol, this is a very elegant Argentine blend. It is drinkable now but should age well. I had the chance to taste the 1995 (first vintage was 1993) which was a powerful, ripe vintage and the wine has gained in complexity, with a class Score – 94.
