2017 DiamAndes de Uco Grande Reserve Mendoza Argentina
This wine has the heritage from France, as the owners owns Bordeaux Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere. The owner obviously brought the French knowhow to Mendoza and make wines based upon their French ancestral knowhow. With famous oenologist Michel Rolland on board for advices, the product from Mendoza turned out to be quite a stunning outcome. Upon a whiff, strong buttery notes encapsulated the bouquet, they are obviously using very good quality French oak barrels. A sip and no turning back, I think the quality exceeded my expectation for an Argentinian wine, the body is so concentrated it’s like eating a big bunch mouthful of grapes and the content is thick and juicy. In fact I think this blend can easily outperform some French Bordeaux counterparts as I once featured a Chateau La Fleur de Bouard 2005 next to this bottle amongst some connoisseurs, and this DiamAndes was definitely not inferior when compared to the French bottle, easily on par with the French!
