    Wine Advocate, March 2021

    "The 2019 Gran Corte is a blend of 85% Malbec and 9% Cabernet Franc plus 6% Tannat that feel very integrated and complementary of each other. The wine comes through as serious and balanced, rich and ripe but without excess and with some tannins that would welcome some more time in bottle and/or food. 78,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2020."

    "Blackberries, figs and violet aromas oozing out from the glass with a juicy, round palate, propped up by wellcrafted, polished tannin. A blend of 85% malbec, 9% cabernet franc and 6% tannat. Drink now or hold"

    Tim Atkin, March 2020

    "Always a reliable and enjoyable wine at the price, Gran Corte combines Malbec with 9% Cabernet Franc and 6% Tannat. Aged in older French and American barrels, it has bags of colour, plum and blueberry fruit, serious tannins, fresh acidity and some sweet oak spices. Especially commendable given the volumes involved. 2021-26"

    Vinous, October 2020

    "A blend of Malbec with 9% Cabernet Franc and 6% Tannat, 100% of which spent time in French and American oak. A good example of a high-altitude wine. The nose conveys dark fruit and jam, prunes, blackberry, country herbs and red bell pepper plus hints of pyrazine. Indulgent at first, with a firm structure lent shape, volume and smooth texture by the good amount of oak. A satisfying northern wine."

    "The Malbec-based blend (9% Cab Franc and 6% Tannat) from high elevation vineyards, shows a graceful, plush persona with notes of lavender, jasmine and white peppered plums. A flush of vanilla on the finish, combined with a bright acidity, makes for a fine food pairing wine."
