Description

91 Points Wine Spectator Argentinian Red Blend

Michel Rolland first went to Argentina in 1988. He immediately fell in love with the country, the atmosphere there, the people, the beautiful landscape and the culture, as well as its fantastic winegrowing potential. After searching around for a while, about 100 kilometers (62 miles) south of Mendoza, the last city before reaching the majestic Andes he and Jean Michel Arcaute, a winegrower from Pomerol in the Bordeaux area, found an ideal plot of land at an altitude of 1,100 meters (3,600 feet). The two originators were joined by friends, also winegrowers, passionate about wine and curious about this country at the other side of the world. They adopted a unique, inventive concept and took up the enormous challenge of contributing together to producing one single wine under Michel Rolland’s supervision.

Malbec, which is the king of all grape varieties in Argentina, is an obvious choice for these soil types. It occupies more than half the total area of the estate and is planted at an unusual density of 5,500 vines per hectare. To add complexity to the blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and a little less Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc are used alongside the Malbec. Each variety contributes its characteristic personality to the final blend. The vines are drip irrigated and great care is taken when the system is switched on and the flow is thoroughly checked so that the precise quantity of water is delivered to each plant, no more, no less.

Clos de Los Siete 2017 is deep red in appearance shot through with purple glints characteristic of Malbec. On the nose, its intense and complex aromatic expression delivers subtle notes of fruit and spice. On the palate, the delicate tannins are ripe and silky, and combine with appealing freshness. Well-balanced in structure, full-bodied and offering typical freshness, the wine showcases a charming, elegant style. 91 Points: Wine Spectator
