Suckling über: Cheval des Andes

-- Suckling: This is the greatest Cheval des Andes ever. Discrete aromas of blackberries, flowers, stone and licorice. So perfumed. The integration of fruit, tannins and acidity is fantastic. Full-bodied, tight and solid with beautiful depth and integrity. Extremely long and exciting. Complex and compelling with such refinement and length. A blend of 62% malbec and 38% cabernet sauvignon. Available in September 2020. Better after 2024.' 100/100


Tim Atkin über: Cheval des Andes

-- Tim Atkin: 'This is the best young vintage of Cheval des Andes that I’ve tasted, demonstrating that this LVMH-owned bodega has finally and fully hit its stride under winemaker Gérald Gabillet. Made from a deftly integrated blend of Malbec and (the highest yet) 38% Cabernet Sauvignon but no Petit Verdot, this stylishly wooded red doesn’t show the heat of the vintage in the slightest. Subtle, balanced and polished, with fine tannins, scented cassis, blackberry and fresh green herb flavours and incredible palate length. World class. 2022-32' 98/100


Parker über: Cheval des Andes

-- Parker: “The 2017 Cheval des Andes is one such wine. 2017 saw an early harvest, but they started picking on the 6th of March and continued until the 10th of April, more or less normal dates, early but not so much. This is clearly the darkest of the trio of vintages I tasted together here—2015, 2016 and 2017—but all three have the elegant and powerful profile, the luxurious and creamy character found in the best Bordeaux wines in the last few years, wines of power with precision, concentration, energy and finesse. The texture is velvety, precise and harmonious. This year, they introduced a larger foudre for 10% of the wine, with the aim to reach 20%, so that volume is increasing every year. I think this is showing more precision, and in a more challenging year, they managed to keep the quality on par with 2016. They have changed the label this year, to a cleaner and more elegant label that also reflects the direction the wine is going in. 81,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2019.” 97+/100

Cheval des Andes

Als sich das Team des renommierten Premier Grand Cru Châteaus Cheval Blanc aus Saint Emilion mit dem argentinischen Team rund um Terrazas de los Andes zusammenfand, um ein Joint Venture am Fuße der Anden zu gründen, war das Ziel klar: Ein argentinischer Grand Cru muss es werden!
