Fine Rare Wine, Gran Malbec Piedra Negra 2001 /04/09 - Argentina
goal on this wine was to create a supple and elegant malbec, while keeping the extradordinary complexity of this variety which became the red emblematic grape for Argentina. The fruit is carefully selected from the best Malbec vineyards, in the hills arounding Mendoza. Named after the colour of the Andes mountains (black stone), this wine offers rich black fruits aromas and spices. Goal achieved for a magnificent malbec. Convinced of the nobility of Malbec, this wine was born out of Francois Lurton’s desire to make a refined and elegant Argentine Malbec, very expressive and aromatic, it is very “Burgundian” in style.
Ageing for 15 months in French oak barrel (225 Litres) with regular racking (50 % new barrel, 50 % first wine barrel)
