Winemaker Notes

Medium-intensity ruby red with purplish tones. The aromas are complex and seductive with notes of humus, red pepper and spices such as cinnamon and black pepper. Good and intense first on the mouth still showing its youth though tannins are soft and well-polished. Beautiful and long finish.

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
Attractive cassis and lightly spicy blueberry aromas lead to a palate that has a smooth and polished feel. Quite elegant and fresh. Drink or hold.

Cuvelier Los Andes Winery Image

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. 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 ageing potential. 

To reach that goal Cuvelier Los Andes estate has the very same size than 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 ageing in French barrels.

Cuvelier Los Andes is also one of the partner and owner of Clos De Los Siete. 30% of Cuvelier Los Andes production is blended within Clos de Los Siete.

Uco Valley Wine

Mendoza, Argentina

View all products

With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation and well-draining alluvial soils, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.

This is the source of some of the best Malbec in Mendoza, which can range from value-priced to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay also perform well here.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
