All great things in France are done with a good bit of Pomp & Circumstance, so that when it came time for winery owners Jean-Guy Cuvelier to partner with his cousin Bertrand on a new venture, they alerted the wine paparazzi, and gathered around the patriarch's great desk in Lille-Haubourdin in way Northern France to sign the papers. The project was not, however, in the vein of their Second Growth Bordeaux, Leovelle Poyfere, but this time these two elegant Frenchmen were moving to Argentina! Enter a third character, Michel Rolland, the great French vigneron and consultant, and the recipe for a critic's acclaim!

The Blend: 59% Malbec, 16% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Syrah and 5% Petite Verdot purple and dense.
The Press: (The Wine Advocate) "structured, rich wine with impeccable balance, volume, and length. It too, is a great value." 92 Points - Parker
