A century later in 1959, Robert Jean de Vogue, president of Moët-Chandon, had the foresight to recognize the potential of Argentina and to select it as the location of the company's first subsidiary outside of France. Worthy heirs of these pioneers, the founders of Terrazas de los Andes saw the singularity of Argentina's terroirs, and had the vision and the audacity to unite France's long and rich winemaking heritage with local tradition and talent. Thus was born Terrazas de los Andes, in 1996.
Over the years, the team has been dedicated to carefully select the best altitude terroirs in Mendoza, both in Lujan de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, as well as Salta for our Torrontes, to deliver the ideal freshness and alluvial soil diversity for each type of grape.
Thriving in the unique natural conditions of the Andean Mountains, Malbec has come to embody Argentinian identity. Our Malbec wines, produced with hand harvested grapes from select high altitude vineyards, epitomize generosity and intensity, offering a large variety of expressions and high-quality tannins. They are particularly appreciated for their silkiness and ample mouthfeel.
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.
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.
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.
