Lafite Rothschild has been in partnership with the Catena family in Mendoza, Argentina since 1999. The Catena family is the most established winemaking family in the region and the resulting winery, Bodegas Caro, has gone on to become the most awarded winery in Argentina. Tim Atkin recently announced Bodegas Caro to be a 'First Growth of Argentina' and declared their winemaker, Fernando Buscema 'Young Winemaker of the Year'.
Rothschild and Catena had one vision; to make the very best wine that Mendoza could offer. This Malbec comes from these stunning high altitude vineyards offering ripe deep, dark fruits, with coffee and chocolate notes and beautifully smooth tannins. Wonderful with hard cheeses, meat dishes or just on its own with a good book.
