Winemaker Notes

Deep black cherry color with mauve glints on the rim. Upon agitating, aromas of dried apricots and floral notes mix with warm scents of tobacco, red berry fruit macerated in brandy, cherry stones and home-made jam, together with cedar-wood, bay leaves and chocolate. The palate is warm and balanced, with freshness and minerals coming through on the mid-palate, along with black currant, spices and almond. Highly integrated, sweet tannins mingle with a long and elegant finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 96
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Cheval des Andes was bottled in early 2008 but has not yet been released. The 2006 vintage is superb throughout Mendoza and this wine, as in many other bodegas I visited in April 2008, shows off the extra dimension of complexity made possible in an exceptional year. The wine is composed entirely of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a bit more saturated than the 2005 with a splendid perfume of pain grille, mineral, espresso, black cherry, and black raspberry that leaps from the glass. More opulent and layered than the 2005, it also conceals a bit more structure. The finish seems to go on and on. Drink it from 2015 to 2035.

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits

From the joint venture between Cheval Blanc of St-Emilion and Terrazas de los Andes, this 2006 is still youthful, full of vitality and force. The tannins are wild, almost unruly, corralled by ripe flavors with the kind of depth that will reward cellaring. Give it three or four years, then open it with a ribeye.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Dense and dark, with aromas of rubber and leather. Complex and stylish, but with raw power, and the flavors of blackberry, fig paste and herbs register as modern Mendoza. Malbec-Cabernet Sauvignon-Petit Verdot; best from 2011-2015

WS 90
Wine Spectator

This broad-shouldered red delivers a mix of dark currant, licorice, damson plum and blackberry fruit flavors, well-integrated with espresso-tinged toast. Stays dense and loamy through the finish. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2011

Cheval des Andes
Cheval des Andes is a unique wine born of generations of passion and savoir-faire, the Argentinian expression of Chateau Cheval Blanc. Renewing the legendary Bordeaux art of assemblage, which it was the first to apply to the high-altitude terroirs for Terrazas de los Andes, it reaches out to those who value tradition, exploration and discovery in equal measure.

Cheval des Andes produces its grapes entirely in two wholly-owned, high-elevation vineyards: Las Compuertas, our jewel vineyard in Luján de Cuyo, the most prestigious winegrowing region of Mendoza, and La Consulta, in the promising region of Valle de Uco, further South.

Reflecting the Cheval des Andes philosophy of precision viticulture, the vineyards are planted in small parcels with the five grape varieties that may, depending on the vintage, be used to blend Cheval des Andes: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.

Refined and elegant, bold and vigorous Cheval des Andes is the Grand Cru of the Andes. The exhilarating blend of an illustrious past and inspiring future.
