Vinous Media 94
“The 2019 Malbec Gran from the Uco Valley was a third aged in foudres and a third in barrels. A very dark purple in the glass. The ripe nose offers rose petals, plum, herbs and a hint of jam. The palate flows well but at a measured pace with intense flavor, good juice and polished tannins along with a hint of salinity.”
by Vinous Media, JH, 2022.

Description
Flechas de los Andes was born from the partnership between Baron Benjamin de Rothschild and Laurent Dassault, as the result of their research of a great terroir at the foot of the Andes in the Mendoza region. Each harvest is handpicked, hand selected, and then fermented with high quality requirements in the most modern equipment.
The name "Flechas de los Andes" or "Andes arrows" refers to the 5 arrows, symbol of the Rothschild family (symbolizing the five brothers at the origin of this dynasty of entrepreneurs). At the foot of the Andes, 120 km south of Mendoza, the Malbec variety rules as the king of this unique terroir. This wine "Gran Malbec " was created to achieve a Malbec of high range, faithful representative of the both families Rothschild and Dassault are aiming to produce a great Argentinian Malbec.

Tasting notes
This ripe and bold Malbec has some serious muscle to it, not to mention a good deal going on with the wine. Dark berries, some tar & a hint of the oak frame, this is a smooth and silky wine. Lovely floral lift with intense, smooth, chocolatey black fruit. Especially flavorful with rack of lamb or full-flavored chicken and veal.
