Grand Malbec, our Special Cuvée, is a selection of our most beautiful Malbec grapes, hand-sorted and dropped in barrels where the wine matures for 18 months. An Absolute 100% Malbec with an outstanding concentration that will surprise you with its balance and ageing potential. A must for all Malbec fans. Baptiste Cuvelier, who is one of the four owners and the manager of the winery, explained why their alcohol levels are above average saying, “Our alcohol levels are always high, because we have very low yields in the vineyard, because we wait for complete ripeness and do a full fermentation, so we’re always above 13.5% alcohol in all our wines. It’s even higher in Grand Malbec, since it’s mostly fermented in barrique, meaning there’s no alcohol evaporation during fermentation, unlike what happens when you ferment in vats. Grand Malbec has the structure, acidity and aromas to disguise it.’’                                          This Special Cuvée has incredible aromas of violets with hints of stone and black licorice, crushed violets emerging with time as the wine is exposed to air and gets warmer. Turns to sandalwood. Full body, with big silky tannins, powerful fruit flavors and a long finish. A powerful Malbec, celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture. Only 6600 bottles were filled, alcohol 16.5 % vol., Serve around 18 ° C.           Award:Wine Spectator 93 pts
