TERRAZAS CHEVAL DES ANDES
CHEVAL DES ANDES IS THE RESULT OF THE UNION BETWEEN CHÂTEAU CHEVAL BLANC, PREMIER GRAND CRU CLASSÉ “A” FROM SAINT EMILION, BORDEAUX, AND TERRAZAS DE LOS ANDES, A PIONEER IN THE PRODUCTION OF HIGH-ALTITUDE WINES IN COOL CLIMATES OF ARGENTINA. DISTINGUISHED BY ITS FRESHNESS, ELEGANCE AND EXCEPTIONAL AGING POTENTIAL, CHEVAL DES ANDES WINE IS THE GRAND CRU OF THE ANDES.
THE STYLE OF CHEVAL DE ANDES IS UNIQUE IN ARGENTINA, AS IT REVEALS THE FRESHNESS AND ELEGANCE OF THE TERROIR THROUGH BLENDS INSPIRED BY CHEVAL BLANC, WITH GREAT AGEING POTENTIAL AND COMPLEXITY.
A UNIQUE STYLE
Cheval des Andes wine combines the vibrant and intense expression of Argentine Malbec with the rigor, elegance and savoir-faire of a great Bordeaux.
It is a unique blend of Malbec grapes and Bordeaux varietals; a set that has the exuberance of Malbec, balanced by the temperance of Cabernet Sauvignon and completed with touches of Petit Verdot.
Cheval des Andes’ vision is to bring Château Cheval Blanc’s winemaking philosophy -based on aging potential and elegance- to Argentina. Cheval des Andes makes wines that age gracefully and “travel through the decades,” according to Pierre Lurton, president of Château Cheval Blanc and Cheval des Andes.
These wines are elegant, that is, they are the most refined expression of Mendoza’s terroir. On the nose, they are complex rather than intense, and on the palate, they are balanced rather than powerful.
