THE BIRTH OF A GREAT NEW WORLD VINTAGE

A PIONEERING CHALLENGE

Named Flechas de los Andes in homage to the five arrows(flechas) that symbolise the Rothschild family, the winery was created through the partnership of Baron Benjamin de Rothschild and Laurent Dassault in their quest for a great terroir at the foot of the Andes. The vineyard, which has been cultivated since 1999, enjoys a dry climate tempered by the high altitudes of the Andes (1100m): on this unique terroir, the Malbec grape variety reigns supreme. This partnership between the two families, as well as their common desire to produce an outstanding Argentine wine, gave birth to Gran Corte, a fine wine whose blend is mainly made of Malbec.

TASTING NOTE

The typical Malbec from Argentina marks its identity wih its aromas of violet and prunes. Syrah provides great minerals and spicy aromas in our semi-desert climate. Malbec as well as Syrah are very intense wines and it is Cabernet-Franc who brings elegance and subtlety with very soft tannins and rose aromas. All these components provide the complexity and elegance wich are necesarry for a great wine. ​
