Cheval des Andes 2018 (6x75cl)

Only available VAT & Duty Paid
The prestigious partnership between Bordeaux's Château Cheval Blanc and Argentina's Terraza de Los Andes, a leap in consistency and quality from 2012, largely attributable to the arrival of Gérald Gabillet, formerly of Château Angélus, and ex-Château Palmer technical director Lorenzo Pasquini, catapulted Cheval des Andes into the global fine wine stratosphere. Without a doubt, they have executed their mission of making classic Bordeaux classed growth quality wine in high-altitude Mendoza.

A release that "will be a great wine indeed" in the eyes of James Suckling, the Cheval des Andes 2018 was last vintage made by Lorenzo Pasquini before he joined Château d'Yquem. With less Cabernet Sauvignon than has traditionally been in the blend but it very much "still pulls its weight" in the eyes of Anson. A "plush" Cheval, the "depth and richness are impressive" (JS) with gorgeous notes of black cherry, blueberry, black cherry, chocolate, liquorice, rosemary and black pepper spice. While it is "very long and structured" it still remains "controlled and in balance" (JS), and clearly has the ageing capability of a top Bordeaux with Anson giving it a drinking window up to 2042.
