The people who craft the Cheval des Andes have backgrounds and working responsibilities at Chateau d'Yquem, Mondavi and Chateau Palmer to name a few. They are a highly accomplished group, and it shows in this stunning wine. The winery recommends two dishes. Veal rib covered in a croute of plum and dried fruit, with quail eggs over potato rounds and bacon chips. Smoked wild boar shoulder served with beet gnocchi and sweet potato cream. Your favorite cut of steak, grilled to perfection, with scalloped potatoes and steamed haricots with herb butter will do nicely too.

This is a plush, rich Cheval with blueberry and floral aromas and flavors. Hints of tar and fresh lavender. Full body. The depth and richness are impressive, as are the ripe yet fresh tannins. Very long and structured, yet controlled and in balance. This will be a great wine indeed. Release in September 2021. Drink after 2023. - James Suckling
