Malbec - 2011, Mariflor, Argentine

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

This wine is a real bodybuilder: rich, powerful and full-bodied! Its licorice and mint flavours are sharp, and the structure is dense and vinous. This wine fits perfectly with exotic and spicy food. It has good aging potential,while being friendly to taste young. Moreover, it will give you the opportunity to discover or rediscover the talents of Michel Rolland, a very talented (and sometimes controversial!) winemaker from Bordeaux.  

 

Terroir

Did you know that Mendoza is the most important wine region in Argentina? With 150,000 hectares of vineyards, Mendoza is one of the most important viticulture areas in the world. Michel Rolland’s vineyards are locatedat 1200 meters of altitude, in the Uco Valley.

lecepage Grape variety

Malbec is a grape variety originally from South-West France, both powerful and fruity. It is still widely cultivated in France but it’s in Argentina, where it was introduced in the 19th century, that it is the most common. This variety provides well colored wines, perfumed (spices, dry fruits, blackcurrants, plum,...) and tannic, with a high suitability for aging.

lemillesime Vintage

The 2011 vintage was excellent in Argentina. A cold wave hit the region of Mendoza in November, raising fears of a significant loss in production and especially for the domain Mariflor. Fortunately, losses proved far lower than expected thanks to the spring which brought a perfect bloom. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Michel Rolland has acquired a worldwide reputationthanks to his ability to find the perfect spot corresponding to each specific type of grapevines. This is how the Domaine Mariflor was born in Argentina. The vineyard, where french grapes are grown, covers 247 hectares!
