Description

1x bottle of 2004 Cheval des Andes in perfect condition, just removed from bonded temperature controlled storage and kept in cool dark cellar.

BLEND
Malbec (55%), Cabernet Sauvignon (43%), Petit Verdot (2%).

COLOUR
Profound core of black-crimson framed by inviting traces of bright violet.

AROMAS
Notes of fresh berries, complemented by subtle hints of moist earth and slate. Residual aromas of truffles, spice and walnuts dominate the glass after swirling.

PALATE
Envelops the senses with notes of elegant, warm bramble and forest berries. A complex mid-palate with a medium structure. Jam, preserves and floral notes evolve into a long finish, with lingering reminders of Andean minerality, mushrooms and wood spices.

'Smoky and savoury. Rich and full bodied but still fine and refined, especially in this context of very big, dense wines. (JH)'
Score: 17.5/20 www.jancisrobinson.com

'A joint venture between Chateau Cheval Blanc and Terrazas De Los Andes, this wine is a groundbreaking blend of legendary Bordeaux "First Growth" winemaking expertise with the very best terroir in Argentina.

Cheval des Andes originated as Director Pierre Lurton sought out a special international terroir in which to apply the storied blending heritage of the French chateau. Lurton was intrigued by the notion of unearthing a connection with the Saint Émilion past: Malbec, decimated by phylloxera in the 1860s from its position as the one of the most important varieties in Saint Emilion and Pomerol, had since been reincarnated in ungrafted form in Argentina, producing some of the world's best Malbecs in recent years.

Cheval Blanc's reconnection with its past was consummated in 1999 as Pierre Lurton visited a select parcel of the most treasured high elevation terroir in Argentina: Terrazas de los Andes' 76-year-old Las Compuertas vineyard, found in Vistalba, Mendoza. In resulting launch vintages of 2001 and 2002, according to Pierre Lurton, Cheval des Andes has proven to "fit in the spirit of Cheval Blanc," refined and elegant in its Bordeaux style, while displaying the characteristic fruit intensity of its Argentine roots.' wine.com
