About Cuvelier Los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon
Cuvelier Los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon has intense and attractive notes of roasted red pepper, blackberries, and earth. The palate has a good entry, structured with spices, black pepper notes, and good concentration and length.
2018 started with a cold and dry winter that remained persistent throughout September. Spring and Summer high and low temperatures exceeded their annual average ranges. However, this increased temperature range promoted optimal phenolic maturity and an incredible anthocyanin accumulation. These exceptional conditions delivered an outstanding vintage which is captured in each of the winery’s wines. 2018 is definitely a vintage to remember, and possibly, the best vintage of Cuvelier Los Andes’ short history.
About Cuvelier Los Andes
Cuvelier Los Andes was started by the Cuvelier family (owner Chateau Le Crock – Cru Bourgeois Saint-Espephe- Bordeaux, Chateau Moulin Riche – Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel & Chateau Leoville-Poyferre, 2nd Grand Cru Classe – Saint Julien -Bordeaux – France) in 1998 buying virgin land in Vista Flores – Tunuyan – Valle de Uco. The vineyard was planted from 1999 to 2006. The Winery was built in 2004.
The goal for Cuvelier Los Andes is to create the Argentinean cousin of Chateau Leoville Poyferre: a long, pleasant, and intense red blend based on Malbec including also Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Syrah with long aging potential.
To reach that goal Cuvelier Los Andes estate has the very same size as the Bordeaux Estates (70 hectares), and applies the same Bordeaux Grand Cru vine-growing: all manual, low yield (5 to 6 tons per hectare) and 100% estate-grown than in Bordeaux and with organic and biodynamic practices. As well Cuvelier Los Andes winery is a state-of-the-art winery designed for that purpose and the wine-making style is as well a Bordeaux Grand Cru wine-making with long-term aging in French barrels.
