Argentine Malbec doesn’t get much finer than this. It's from an estate that has won six Decanter Trophies in three years, two of them for this Barrel Selection. From a Bordeaux wine family, Hervé came to South America to look for a vineyard and fell in love with old-vine Malbec. He not only bought vineyards but also made his home there. Having started in Mendoza, he now has an estate in Patagonia too. He runs his properties like a top Bordeaux château, with an impressive barrel cellar at each. This superb red comes from 30-year-old vines grown in Patagonia’s Río Negro. Made like a fine claret and aged for a year in French oak barriques, it's powerful, yet elegant with silky violet and spicy plum fruit. Decant early to let it breathe.
