#30 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2023

Bright red color with purple shades. Intense floral and fruity notes on the nose with the presence of violets, ripe black cherry and plum aromas. This wine reveals a toasty and spicy character of black pepper and chocolate. Its sweet and juicy mouthfeel delivers finesse, delicate tannins and an elegant finish of black fruits.

At the end of the 1950s, the famous French Champagne house, Moët & Chandon, realized there was an enormous potential for growth in South America. They sent their wine analyst, Renaud Poirier, to study the possibility of expansion. Monsieur Poirier finally proved that Luján de Cuyo, a region within the province of Mendoza, was the best place for the birth of fine wines. In 1960, Chandon Argentina was established, the first subsidiary of Moët & Chandon outside France.

To make the Terrazas de los Andes wines, Chandon Argentina took the initiative to restore this building, located in the heart of Perdriel and at the foot of the imposing Cordón del Plata (a section of the Andes Mountain Range).

In the past, Chandon Argentina made only sparkling and generic still wines, however at the beginning of the '90s fueled by a political system more orientated towards an international market, a varietal wines project was born, to which Terrazas has now become the reality. Situated in Perdriel there is an old Spanish style winery that was used by Pedro Domecq to create his brandy. Renaud Poirier asked Domecq if he could use his equipment to make the first experimental vintages, between 1957 and 1959. Thirty years later Terrazas de los Andes was born, a tributary of Chandon Argentina dedicated exclusively to the production of varietal wines.

The 2021 Malbec Reserva is sourced from the Uco Valley and was aged 40% in used French oak barrels, while the other 60% spent a year in tanks. It has a purple hue. On the nose, it features violets, plums, cherries, orange peel and herbs. With supple tannins and a velvety texture, the palate lingers for a long time, with a thinner volume than it used to have. The 2021 vintage exhibits a refreshing shift in style towards a more primary profile.
