Whenever the Barons de Rothschild magic is bestowed upon a new property, we always end up with a gem of wine. Some old favorites include Los Vascos of Chile, Caro of Argentina, and Quinta do Carmo of Portugal. The network of labels that this Bordeaux family is behind is impressive in scope, especially when considering the level of quality of each wine produced. Whenever you see the Rothschild insignia on the back label, you can be confident that the wine was made with love.
Our latest discovery under this umbrella happens to be a joint venture between Benjamin de Rothschild and Laurent Dassault of St-Emilion’s Chateau Dassault. They stumbled upon a unique property in none other than Mendoza Argentina that they couldn’t wait to get their paws into. The Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah vines planted there needed the Rothschild touch, and that’s exactly what they received. 2006 Flechas de los Andes Gran Corte is the wine they proudly co-produced, and the families now have yet another stunner to add to their extraordinary résumé. It blends all four of those varieties, and unlike so many other behemoth Malbec blends, it has the balance and sophistication of a true European wine. We’re excited to offer you the best pricing in the country on Gran Corte, and we’d love your feedback on the remarkable price/quality ratio. See Michael’s tasting notes to tempt you further.
"Is this Argentine beef in a bottle? Even after 24 hours open, this continues to unfold and impress. Aromatically, I’m getting resinous black fruit, molten licorice, aged balsamic and, dare I say, a note that reminds me of white gumballs! This blend is big-but-pure, meaning that I feel it’s driven less by oak and jammy ripeness, and more by its own complexity and its sweet chunky tannins. Flavors of black raspberry and beef blood carry nicely through the lengthy finish, and it’s making me hungry. I think I’ll throw a steak on the grill."Michael Koehler - Suburban's Argentina Wine Buyer
