Clos de los Siete par Michel Rolland Mendoza 2009


Clos de Los Siete is a French joint venture in Mendoza in Argentina with the wines made by famous Bordeaux consultant Michel Rolland.  The only continent he seems not to consult on is Australia(!), but I say this in the hope that someone may know whether that is in fact the case...  The 2009 vintage from Clos de los Siete is a good wine, with aromatics of blackberry and pencil shavings.  The palate sees plums and deli meats added to these two, with fine grained tannins and medium length.  Overall, this is a reasonably serious wine that will reward your interest.

Rating: Good, Abv: 14.5%, Price: C$25, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: http://www.clos7.com.ar, Tasted: 2014

  1. This article suggests not: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/10/11/dining/11pour.html

    Used to see a fair bit of this in the UK, always on the hot list from Matthew Jukes. Is it a DMs exclusive here? Or am I getting confused with Montes Alpha?

  2. Thanks for the link; very helpful and an interesting article too! I tasted this one overseas, so that reconciles with your impressions. It looks like it hasn't made the big chains here, as I only spotted a couple of local retailers with it with odds and ends type vintages ...

    Cheers
