The wine

Towards the end of the 1950s, Moët & Chandon sent their head of wine production, Renaud Poirier, to South America in the search for regions with great winemaking potential. Poirier was most impressed by the vineyards in Luján de Cuyo, in the Mendoza region, and he convinced his team to create their first wines outside of France just there. This involved several years of research to find the best terroirs for each kind of grape they use until eventually the Terrazas de los Andes winery was opened for business in 1999.

Terrazas de los Andes Reserva is one of the emblematic wines the firm creates, a wine bringing together all the qualities of the very best red wines from Argentina. A Malbec wine produced from vines ranging between 20 and 80 years in age, planted at altitudes over 1000 metres high up in the Uco Valley. The extremely cool nights and chalky soil poor in organic material provide the ideal conditions for a perfect ripening of the grapes.

What does this wine taste like?

The wine displays a bright red colour with violet glints and a wonderful nose with subtle floral notes and intense fruit. Primary aromas of violets, black cherries and ripe plums stand out from a toasted and spicy background of black pepper and chocolate thanks to its time spent ageing in French oak. Sweet and juicy on first drinking, its delicate tannins and perfect level of acidity linger on until its elegant and wonderfully pleasing finish of black fruit.
