Poesia Clos des Andes Malbec 2016
Bodega Poesia was founded in 2000 by Bordeaux-based winemakers Hélène Garcin and her husband Patrice Lévèque, owners of Clos l’Eglise (Pomerol), Chateau Barde-Haut (Saint-Emilion), and Poesia (Saint Emilion Grand Cru). Their newest vineyard is in Mendoza, and it made the Bodega Poesia Clos des Andes Malbec. You're going to love it.
Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "Cropped from a cooler and wetter year with lower yields, the 2016 Clos des Andes shows more subtleness and freshness. It's pure Malbec from a vineyard planted ungrafted in 1935 that matured in oak barrels for 16 to 18 months. All the grapes are fermented, and then based on tasting, the wines are classified for the different cuvées. Drink 2018-2023." Jun 2018
