Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
You have to doff your hat to this stylishly packaged, large volume blend from Michel Rolland. Back down to five varieties in 2015 (there were six in 2014), it’s a seamless assemblage of mostly Malbec with, in order of importance, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Floral and well balanced, with supple red berry fruit, it reflects the cooler vintage. 2019-25. Alcohol: 14.5%
C7 is the ultimate blend crafted by world renowned Master Blender, Michel Rolland. Michel discovered a special plot of land in Argentina, located at the foot of the Andes Mountains in the Uco Valley. With six other friends, Michel created the vineyard of 7, Clos de los Siete. Intrigued by its unique combination of high altitude, well drained soils, optimal aspect and dry climate, Michel was certain this land would be optimal for growing a variety of Bordeaux grapes, particularly Malbec.
Having worked with over 150 wineries across 13 countries, Michel is now the most famous consulting winemaker in the world. Today, we celebrate 20 years of Michel having founded C7 and planting his first vines in the Uco Valley.
