"The 2014 Malbec Reserva had a note of smoky bacon that made me think of a Northern Rhône. 60% of the wine matured in French oak for one year. There are plenty of notes of licorice and ripe plums with hints of violets. The palate is medium to full-bodied with grainy, slightly dusty tannins. It is a ripe, juicy Malbec. 36,000 bottles produced.

Bodegas Fabre seems to be the definitive name of the project from the folks at Fabre Montmayou, Bodegas Vistalba, or Domaine Vistalba in Gualtallary in the Uco Valley. The Viñalba brand is used for all the new wines here."

" Deep red color with violet tones. Very intense bouquet with notes of sappy cherry, currant, and baking spice. More red fruits fill the palate and the wine finishes with impeccable balance and silky tannins. " ~ Winery notes

View all from Fabre Montmayou
Fabre MontmayouHervé Joyaux Fabre, owner and winemaker of Fabre Montmayou, was born in Bordeaux, France, to a family of wine negociants.
When he arrived in Argentina in the early 90’s looking for opportunities to invest in vineyards and start a winery, Hervé was impressed by the potential for Malbec in Mendoza.

As a true visionary, he bought very old Malbec vineyards, planted in 1908, and built the Fabre Montmayou winery with real boutique style and essence. Once the winery in Mendoza was established Hervé then decided to buy vineyards and a winery in Rio Negro, Patagonia. He realised the unique cool climate of this southern region combined with the “terroir” made it possible to create great wines that are very different in style from those produced in Mendoza.

His passion and “savoir faire” did the rest. Also, his partnership with his wife, Diane, enabled him to begin producing exceptional wines that have achieved international acclaim and are enjoyed in over twenty countries. Hervé crafts the wines, meticulous in his approach to ensure every step of the process is carried out to his instruction. Diane takes control when the wine is ready to be shipped out to customers. She looks after everything from the corks to customers and beyond.

consistently excellent table wine

"already did and they ordered a case from you."

Alan

Great Malbec

"Excellent value. Rich and flavorful. Not complex but a great everyday wine. Let it breathe for 25 minutes. If you're a fan of this wine, the 2014 is as good or better than the 2013 but definitely slightly different--even smoother."
