“I have been following this Gouguenheim cuvée for a few years and it is one of the few Argentinean Malbecs which I feel is truly in balance – the fruit, oak and tannin are all superbly assimilated. However, this 2011 vintage is in a league of its own. The vineyards are incredibly high altitude, over a kilometre above sea level, and this situation lends this wine a coolness and calmness which is evident in every sip. Owned by Patricio Gouguenheim, who was a successful Wall Street financier, the property is called Valle Escondido (Hidden Valley) and this cuvée is named after an indigenous flower which rather echoes the beauty and colour of this wine. The wonderful perfume and deep purple hue is enhanced by generous oak which augments the flavours rather than drying them out, as is so often the case in this part of the world. This is as sumptuous and decadent as a wine five times the price.”
Rich, elegant wine with soft blueberry notes and a touch of spice. Delicious, full in the mouth; leather and tobacco notes, very smooth and approachable with a mellow, rich feel. This wine ages well. Certified Organic.
This near legendary Lebanese estate was founded by Gaston Hochar in 1930 in a region with a 6,000 year old wine- producing history started by the Phoenicians. Musar cellars well.
A deep red colour, with aromas of sweet cherry, plum and dried fruit together with a subtle spice element and hint of tobacco. The wine has a soft, rounded mouthfeel with lots of flavour and fruit concentration – caramel, mocha, ripe red fruits which are supported with soft, velvety tannins and a spicy finish.
