Winemaker Notes

This superb Malbec has a deep purple color and offers concentrated aromas of plums, black cherries and notes of violet. The jammy plum and red fruit flavors are rounded off perfectly by soft, supple tannins.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Argento has found its calling with this wine, by far the best to date from this label. It’s deep and pure, with raisin, blackberry, spice and vanilla on the nose. Super solid and lush, with layered flavors of jammy berry, coffee and chocolate. Holds all its form on the finish; excellent vino for the dollar. Imported by Lion Nathan USA, Inc. Editors’ Choice.

Argento
At Argento, they have always had a strong belief that blending fruit sourced from a variety of altitudes, soil profiles and microclimates creates more interesting wines with greater complexity and balance. The grapes come from vineyards throughout the main regions of Mendoza: the Uco Valley, the Central Region and the Eastern Region.

Within these three regions there are numerous sub-regions, such as Agrelo, Tupungato, Maipú, Luján de Cuyo and San Carlos where the climate, altitude and soil profile differ considerably. Argento makes the most of Mendoza's natural conditions and find the best balance between terroir, canopy management, and grape variety. They nurture their vines so they grow to be healthy and the grapes achieve perfect ripeness and they harvest at the exact moment when the balance between sugar, acids and polyphenols is right.

In the winery, the grapes are pressed with the greatest care and fermented at controlled temperatures to extract all the intense fruit characters. They protect the must from oxidation at all times to keep our wines as fresh as possible. In the blending process they combine grapes from up to 12 different vineyard sites, allowing them to craft the very best blend for each wine. Finally, they select only the best French and American oak to age our wines and develop the vanilla, tobacco and chocolate characters, bringing even further complexity to the blends of the final wines.

Pouilly-Fuisse

View all wine

The source of some of the richest and most sought-after Chardonnays of the Mâconnais, Pouilly-Fuissé represents a land of opportunity both for local growers and producers farther north in the Côte d’Or. Its soils are quite the same as farther north (limestone) but its weather is a bit warmer and land prices lower.

The appellation is restricted to the Chardonnay grape and includes the communes of Fuissé, Solutré (which includes Pouilly), Vergisson and Chaintré (see also mâcon villages). The richest Chardonnay comes from Fuissé and Solutré-Pouilly, whereas the Chardonnay at higher elevation from Vergisson expresses more minerality and finesse.

Tradition has the wines age one year in barrel before release and while maybe not offering the elegance of Beaune Chardonnay as a whole, they still age well and offer some of the very best values of the region. Pairing Pouilly-Fuissé with lobster or King Crab will bring great joy not only to your palate—but also your pocketbook!

Chardonnay

View all wine

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it’s grown and how it’s made. In Burgundy, Chardonnay produces some of the finest white wines in the world, typically tending towards minimal intervention in the winery and at its best resulting in remarkable longevity. This grape is popular throughout the world, but perhaps its second most important home is in California, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia, South America, South Africa, and New Zealand are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

In the Glass

When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay’s flavors tend towards grapefruit, green apple, minerals, and white stone fruit, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of fig, melon, and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut, and spice (as well as texture), while malolactic fermentation can impart soft, buttery acidity.

Perfect Pairings

Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with simple seafood, light chicken dishes, and salads. Richer Chardonnays marry well with cream or oil-based sauces.

Sommelier Secret

Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. These Old-World style wines have been dubbed the “New California Chardonnays,” and anyone who claims they do not like Chardonnay should give them a try.
