Luigi Bosca 'Lujan de Cuyo' Single Vineyard Malbec 2013

Luigi Bosca 'Lujan de Cuyo' Single Vineyard Malbec 2013 Wine Spectator 2015 Top 100 - #81


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

91 pts Wine Spectator 12/31/15 - 2015 Top 100 - #81
Decadently spiced, with intense dark chocolate and roasted plum flavors that feature notes of paprika. Black pepper accents show on the lush, mineral-filled finish. Needs time to open up. Best from 2017 through 2021.
90 pts Vinous - Stephen Tanzer March 2016
Fresh, dark red. Showing more obvious chocolaty oak on the nose than the Mendoza Malbec, along with aromas of redcurrant, licorice and herbs. Very suave, fine-grained and sweet, conveying lovely subtle depth to its redcurrant and spice flavors complicated by sexy mocha and coffee nuances. Finishes with suave, firm tannins and excellent length. Balanced from the outset, and less dominated by oak in the mouth than the Mendoza Malbec.



Winemaker Notes

In 1989 Luigi Bosca collaborated actively to create the Lujan de Cuyo Denomination of Origin, the only D.O.C. established in Argentina, proudly bringing it into line with other D.O.C.s worldwide. To be labeled D.O.C. a wine must adhere to strict regulations; vines must hale from a single vineyard and average 50 years or older. Plantings must be kept to under 550 plants per hectare with yields of not more than 10,000kg. In the winery, wines must be aged a minimum of 12 months in barrique. Additionally, each bottle must be numbered.
Terroir: Sourced from Bosca's east facing La Linda vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo- Maipo. Vines average 70 years and sit at an elevation of 960 meters. Soils here are well drained and shallow based with a mix of limestone and silt.
Intense violet color with aromas of cherry and ripe plum. Spiced, with mocha and blackberry hints. Gracefully sweet, with a persistent, delicate perfume and an elegant structure.
