Pinot Noir Crios, 2014, Alto Agrelo, Argentina

Pinot Noir Crios, 2014, Alto Agrelo, Argentina

Ref: A1192214

Jam-packed with ripe fruity flavours - a wine with excellent balance and vibrancy.

Crios means “offspring” (as in children). Susana selected a word to express the notion that these are wines that haven’t quite “grown up” to the same level of quality and maturity as her more expensive Susana Balbo signature label wines, but they receive the same loving care and attention throughout the winemaking process. The label features a series of three connected and overlapping hands, an image inspired by a Mayan artifact. The three hands represent Susana and her two children. By definition, Crios wines are meant to be consumed while still young and vibrant and have great fruit expression.

Susana Balbo and her viticulturist partner, Pedro Marchevsky, have combined their respective skills and experience at Dominio del Plata where they are totally in charge, concentrating on planting, varietal selection, water management and canopy ‘conduction’. The project was specially designed so that the vineyards do not harm the natural resources and, at the same time, preserves the environment.

We have been keen supporters of Susana’s excellent Anubis Malbec for many years and we have just added a tremendous lime-fresh Torrontes, sourced from their vineyards in the Cafayete Valley. Quite simply, it’s one of the best white we’ve tasted from Argentina.

Delicious, juicy, refreshing Pinot Noir from high altitude vineyards in Alto Agrelo. The cool climate has leant this Pinot Noir an elegance, not dissimilar to good, ripe examples from Côte de Beaune. 14% abv

Susana Balbo has made wine in more countries that I can list. She is in the top 10 of female wine makers and was the first wine maker (from a choice of men and women) to be selected to consult on wines from Argentina.

Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
A fantastic white Burgundy from Jean-Marc Morey, Côte de Beaune, which exhibits a purity of rich fruit (coupled with a mouth-tingling freshness) that is rare to find.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Doucinello 2011
Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
