Overview

The year 2015 high temperatures recorded from winter to summer, which threatened over ripening, but the year was “saved by the rain” in February that brought good freshness and ideal ripeness. In general, 2015 is a very elegant, discrete and subtle year with a more distinct Bordeaux style than its predecessors.

The harvest took 15 days: the last week of March for Malbec first week of April for the Cabernet Sauvignon. From a winemaking point of view, 2015 marks a change in the barrels used: the team significantly increased the proportion of 400 and 500 litres tonneaux in order to preserve more of the fruit’s crispness.

Winery Tasting Notes

BLEND

Malbec (69%), Cabernet Sauvignon (31%).

COLOUR

Lively ruby red with sharp highlights.

AROMAS

The nose is elegant and discrete, revealing captivating aromas of liquorice, menthol and camphor that play along with the primary notes of wild fruits and blueberries. These aromas leave space for an intense tertiary bouquet of anise, leather, clove and balsamic.

PALATE

The mouth is sharp, fresh and subtle. It exhibits the precise balance and finesse of the year. Roundness comes from our octogenarian Malbec vines and structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cheval des Andes is the first fusion of the Premier Grand Cru Classé A of Saint-Emilion - Cheval Blanc, with its savoir-faire, and Terrazas de los Andes, with the best Argentine high-altitude terroir, and its expertise in producing Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The philosophy of successive harvests directly addresses the synergy born as a driving idea to bring together in one single wine: the French art of assemblage, and the creative innovation of the new world.
