Cheval des Andes

Cheval des Andes

Cheval des Andes ist eine Kooperation des weltweit renommierten Chateaus Cheval Blanc aus dem französischen Bordeaux und Terrazas de los Andes, Weingut im argentinischen Mendoza, die bereits 1999 begann. Hier verfügt man über einzigartige Höhenlagen, um den Weinen ideale Voraussetzungen für langes Lagerpotential mitzugeben. Dies liegt an dem so genannten „cool climate“-Anbau in den Höhenlagen: kalte Nächte, die die Säureproduktion in der Traube fördern und den Wein so haltbarer machen. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon und Petit Verdot werden zum Cheval des Andes vermählt, also typisch bordelaiser Rebsorten. Als Vorbild im Stil dient der elegante Cheval Blanc.

97+ Parker Punkte ür den Cheval des Andes 2016 MendozaVerkostungsnotiz von Luis Gutierrez am 30. August 2019:

The new vintage to be released in September 2019 is the 2016 Cheval des Andes. which was cropped from a completely unusual year—cooler than the average and with an exceptional amount of rain (around 600 liters). yet the wine has achieved exceptional freshness. It's 13.9% alcohol. and there's more red fruit on the nose. which is subtle and elegant. a little closed at first. shy and subtle. They have done great adjustments in the élevage. with the wine matured in 30% to 40% 400-liter barrels and only some 40% new wood. It's 58% Malbec (approximately 50/50 from Luján and Valle de Uco. where they have 15 hectares in Altamira). 37% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. This has less structure than the 2015. but there's more tension; this is a wine that should develop beautifully in bottle. This is a vintage of precision and with great aging potential. I think this wine is the most elegant produced so far. Bravo! 64.000 bottles produced.

Cheval des Andes 2017 Mendoza mit 97+ Parker Punkten ausgezeichnetVerkostungsnotiz von Luis Gutierrez am 31. August 2020:

In the last few years. a handful of wines from Chile and Argentina—often French owned—have been released in September through the Place de Bordeaux. the network of négociants that sell most of the Bordeaux wines and some of the leading wines from other regions. The 2017 Cheval des Andes is one such wine. 2017 saw an early harvest. but they started picking on the 6th of March and continued until the 10th of April. more or less normal dates. early but not so much. The varietal break down this vintage comes to 62% Malbec and 38% Cabernet Sauvignon. and the wine is slightly riper and higher in alcohol than 2016 (this 2017 is 14.2% alcohol). The different plots fermented separately with selected yeasts. and the élevage lasted for 15 months and was in 50/50 new and second use barrels. 90% of them French and the rest made with wood from Eastern Europe. They used 45% Bordeaux barrels. 45% 400-liter barrels and. for the first time. a 2.500-liter oak foudre. This is clearly the darkest of the trio of vintages I tasted together here—2015. 2016 and 2017—but all three have the elegant and powerful profile. the luxurious and creamy character found in the best Bordeaux wines in the last few years. wines of power with precision. concentration. energy and finesse. This seems to combine the clout of the 2015 and the freshness of the 2016 and feels something in between those two vintages. Their work in the vineyard toward the maturity of the tannins meant the challenge in 2017 was to not let the grapes ripen too fast and too early. The work is different for Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. to get round tannins in Cabernet and get some tension in Malbec. the contrary of the normal tendency of the varieties. 2017 has less ripeness than the 2015 but more density than the 2016. The texture is velvety. precise and harmonious. This year. they introduced a larger foudre for 10% of the wine. with the aim to reach 20%. so that volume is increasing every year. I think this is showing more precision. and in a more challenging year. they managed to keep the quality on par with 2016. They have changed the label this year. to a cleaner and more elegant label that also reflects the direction the wine is going in. 81.500 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2019.
