Grand Vin 2009 by Jancis Robinson


Last 4th July, Jancis Robinson has published her tasting note on GRAND VIN 2009 : “Dark blackish purple. Big, intense, very vibrant nose. A little brutal. Savoury and chewy and as though dry-grown fruit almost. Honest toil in this wine which tastes almost sweaty and salty. Could probably only be Argentine but not lifted. Very feet on the ground, roots in the soil. Just not syrupy. Very serious effort. But a bit hot on the end.” Source :

2008 Cuvelier Los Andes Grand VinBlend Mendoza – 92 points

Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, Mar/Apr 13

(15% on the samplelabel): Bright, full medium ruby. Liqueur-like aromas ofblackberry, cassis and licorice complicated by a musky truffley quality. Velvety and rich, with a saline nuance to the highly concentrated dark berryand fig flavors. Finishes withstrong, dusty tannins and excellent length. 92points

2009 Cuvelier Los Andes Grand Malbec Mendoza – 91+ points

By Stephen Tanzer

Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, Mar/Apr 13

(the label on mysample said 16% alcohol): Deep saturated ruby. Crushed blackberry,licorice pastille, violet and a whiff of tar on the nose. An essence ofsuperconcentrated, very primary malbec on the palate, with intense cassis andblackberry fruit flavors complemented by chocolate and menthol. With itsalmost ruby port-like power and tannic spine–not to mention high alcohol–thisis almost painful today. Seven or eight years down the road, it may wellmerit a significantly higher score. 91+ points

2010 Cuvelier Los AndesColeccion Blend Mendoza

By Stephen Tanzer

Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, Mar/Apr 13

Mediumred-ruby. Aromatic, expressive nose offers blackberry, licorice, bitterchocolate and a touch of violet. Juicy and tightly wound but stillpliant, with lovely energy and shape to the flavors of dark berries, darkchocolate and licorice. Finishes fresh and ripely tannic, with ayouthfully medicinal quality to the lingering black fruit and licoriceflavors. This very promising wine needs a few years in bottle to soften. 90(+?) points

Lanzamiento Varietales 2011
Los Varietales 2011 de nuestra línea Colección ya están a la venta : Cabernet Sauvignon y Merlot ya están disponibles en nuestra red de distribuidores y dentro de unos meses estará también el Malbec.Para marcar el lanzamiento de estas nuevas cosechas, nuestro enólogo Adrián Manchón dirigió una degustación durante un almuerzo en el restaurante capitalino “Astrid y Gastón”. Asistieron 15 personas : clientes, periodistas del rubro gastronómico , de televisión y sommeliers especializados.La reunión fué muy amena y distendida muy al estilo descontracturado de Adrián Manchón, situación que hace que los clientes se animen a preguntar y se entusiasmen con los vinos y la historia que hay detrás de la familia Cuvelier tanto en Argentina como en Francia .

Al terminar el almuerzo, Adrián visito la vinoteca Les Choix Des Vins en Recoleta y firmo algunas botellas para sus propietarias, las hermanas Teresa y Magdalena Sallabery.

A la tarde, Adrián dirigió otra degustación en la vinoteca de Palermo Soho Autre Monde.

Gracias a Margarita Bordón y Gustavo Paolucci por la organización de estos eventos !
