Founded in 1999, Cheval des Andes is a joint winemaking venture of Terrazas de los Andes, a subsidiary of Moët Hennessy in Argentina, and Cheval Blanc, the renowned Saint-Emilion First Great Classified Growth "A".
Cheval des Andes wines are a blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the "Las Compuertas" vineyards near Mendoza, in the Cordilleras, or foothills, of the Andes.
The Malbec vines, some of them 80 years old, have never been grafted. The wines are assembled by Pierre Lurton, oenologist and head of Cheval Blanc, in collaboration with oenologists from Terrazas de los Andes.
The unique combination of Argentine terroir and grapes and the art of assemblage from Bordeaux winemakers has resulted in one of the most remarkable and prestigious wines in the world.
Both the 2005 and 2006 vintages from Cheval des Andes received outstanding praise among wine professionals and the international press, as well as discerning lovers of grands crus wines.
Cheval des Andes wines are now available in most world markets.
Cheval des Andes is part of the Estates & Wines collection.
