Francois Lurton L'Esprit de Chacayes 2022

Valle de Uco, Tunuy√°n, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaChacayes takes its name from the small jackals that roam the Andean plateaus, and this is the Mendoza property's flagship red. It opens with floral violet and fresh black cherry. The attack is similar, with crunchy cranberries flecked with orange and more spice in the aftermath. Rich, mouthfilling, and complex, this is a great cheese wine that will be a great storyteller in the coming years.Tasted: 10 October 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
