La Coste de Los Andes Malbec 2020

Valle de Uco, Tunuyán, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaLa Coste de Los Andes is an Argentine project from France's Chateau La Coste. Their wines are to merge the sunny spirit of La Provence with the luminous heights of the Andes Mountains. This is their top wine, with the best rows of malbec from Los Chacayes, Tunuyán. Half was fermented in concrete egg with the remainder in French barrels. This macerated and fermented over 1 month before 18 months in French oak. Deep and brooding, with stewed plum, blackberry, dark earth, cloaked with ample furry tannins to a warming, bitter cocoa finish. Drying out prematurely, this is best drunk now.Tasted: 25 July 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
