Barons de Rothschild & Catena: an excellent alliance

Bodegas Caro 2015

The union of two great wine dynasties from Argentina and France

Nicolas Catena and Domaines Barons de Rothschild have “combined their deep knowledge of Medoza’s terroir and the art of winemaking” to create these Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon blends grown high up on the Mendoza plateau of Argentina.

In a vintage like 2015, where conditions were troublesome during the growing season in Mendoza, only the best producers have fulfilled their potential. Catena’s intimate knowledge of this high-altitude region and mastery of the Malbec variety, combined with Rothschild precision winemaking and Cabernet Sauvignon prowess, have produced a fine pair of wines in 2015. They have the full bodied charm of well-ripened Malbec, with the tension and high-quality tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon. The region’s cool nights result in wines that possess a balance between rich fruit and freshness.

This union between the two winemaking dynasties began in 1999, and since then they have built on the experience of each vintage. The vinification remains traditional, with hand harvesting, destemming, and a gentle maceration. The fruity, robust and approachable Amancaya spends 12 months in a combination of French oak barrels and concrete tanks, whilst the smooth and savoury ‘grand vin’, Caro, spends 18 months mellowing in French oak barrels.

These wines will hit the spot with both loyal Bordeaux drinkers and South American aficionados, and should make a welcome addition to the dinner table of anyone who enjoys gutsy red wines with full fruit flavours and robust structure.
