"Quimera", 2010 - a delicious wine, in which the "Old World meets New" (Robert Parker). The creation of wine producers inspired by the great Bordeaux red wines samples, which were taken as a basis, but viewed through the prism of the Argentine wine. So blended, along with classic French grape varieties, there was a star of Argentina - the Malbec variety. The result was a "great" wine whose greatness is not simply the sum of all components and seamless integration of sorts, but in terms of the ideal wine - the soul of wine. This is a wonderful, complex wine, aged in French oak barrels for 14 months, has a magnificent structure that will allow guilt to maintain and develop at least 10 years.
