This is a very ripe red with tons of hazelnuts, vanilla, toasty oak, blackberry pie and dried mulberries, as well as a wallop of leather and menthol. The blockbuster palate injects huge layers of dark fruit into chewy tannins. A little old-school.

The classical, ripe and heady 2012 Gran Malbec matured in French barriques (new and used) but one-third of the volume remained in stainless steel for one year. It's quite balsamic, with even some camphor notes. The palate is dusty, with abundant tannins and lowish acidity. 100,000 bottles produced.

Named Flechas de los Andes in homage to the five arrows (flechas) that symbolise the Rothschild family, the winery was created through the partnership of Baron Benjamin de Rothschild and Laurent Dassault in their quest for a great terroir at the foot of the Andes. The vineyard, which has been cultivated since 1999, enjoys a dry climate tempered by the high altitudes of the Andes (1100m): on this unique terroir, the Malbec grape variety reigns supreme. This partnership between the two families, as well as their common desire to produce an outstanding Argentine wine, gave birth to Gran Corte, a fine wine whose blend is mainly made of Malbec.

Expressive, powerful and structured.
