Winemakers Note

Cheval des Andes, the "grand cru" of the Andes Cheval des Andes, is the fruit of a fusion between two cultures combining the vision and expertise of Château Cheval Blanc with high altitude wine-growing in the Mendoza region. Under challenging climatic conditions, this is where Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon unite in a blend which is born at the foot of the Andes mountain range. Conceived in 1999, this vision of wine growing is completely unusual as it combines two very different "terroirs" such us Las Compuertas in Lujan de Cuyo and Paraje Altamira in Uco Valley, coupled with two legendary grape varieties and a desire to create complexity out of diversity. Today, the vision of committed viticulturists has been achieved through twenty years of daily care in these unique vineyards which now produce a genuine "grand cru" of the Andes. As the vision is accomplished, the edges are polished; freshness, balance and complexity become the cornerstones of Cheval des Andes. 2019 vintage The 2019 harvest was first characterized by some rainy episodes during spring while early summer was marked by 3 heat waves during which the water management of the vineyard was of the utmost importance. Fortunately, the cycle continued with dry weather and good thermal amplitude which resulted in a high quality harvest. Gérald Gabillet tells you about this vintage: Tasting notes The nose is filled with intense notes of fresh red fruits with touches of herbs and flowers that remind us of violets and lavender. Refreshingly smooth on the palate, with great personality, elegant tannins and a sharp and balanced acidity. Cheval des Andes 2019 invites us to enjoy its freshness and complex youth and also to discover it over the years.
