Antucura Grand Vin (Magnum)
- Mendoza, Argentina
For Anne-Caroline Biancheri, the idea of starting a family represented the decision to undertake a life conceived from the values, landscapes and aromas with which she wanted to see her children grow up. She started with land. Looking for such a place, she discovered Vista Flores, in the Uco Valley of Mendoza. This privileged area of incomparable beauty, framed by the Andes mountains, offers the best climatic and geographical conditions to create emblematic wines. There, Antucura began to take root in the land of the original inhabitants of the area. A place where stones embrace vines on its rich terroir. Antucura means “Sun Stone”, according to the local ancient language Mapudungun.
"(45-day cuvaison followed by 18 months of aging in new French oak; also a blend of cabernet, merlot and malbec, but with a higher percentage of cabernet than the Calcura) Bright ruby-red. Currant and dark chocolate aromas on the almost syrupy-ripe nose, with a full load of exotic coconut-and-caramel oak and exotic spices from a high percentage of Taransaud barrels. Rich, velvety and full, with a captivating sweetness to the blackcurrant, boysenberry, chocolate and coconut flavors. In a more New World style than the Calcura, sweeter and fruitier, with more baby fat. But this packed wine has plenty of underlying backbone. Finishes with very lush, suave tannins." 92 pts, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
"Antucura’s 2006 Gran Vin is composed of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, and 5% Merlot (in consultation with Michel Rolland) and was aged in new French oak for 16 months. Medium purple in color, it offers up an alluring perfume of wood smoke, cherry blossom, incense, Asian spices, cassis, boysenberry, and black cherry. Concentrated on the palate with layered fruit and potential complexity, this impeccably balanced effort will unfold for several more years and provide pleasure through 2020." 92 pts, Jay S Miller, WA
