"Saturated bright ruby. Crushed blackberry and boysenberry fruit aromas are complicated by menthol and rocky minerality. Broad, large-scaled and full, with lovely perfume to its urgent black cherry and dark berry flavors. Firm acids and strong minerality accentuate the wine's definition and grip. Finishes with toothdusting, fine tannins and terrific persistence. This impressively rich, deep, pliant wine is a noble expression of malbec." -93 points- Stephen Tanzer- International Wine Cellar
"Monteviejo's 2007 Lindaflor is 100% Malbec. A glass-coating opaque purple, it displays an aromatic array of toasty new oak, pencil lead, tar, violets, and black cherry. This leads to a full-bodied, dense, tannic behemoth that has loads of succulent fruit, good balance, and a lengthy finish. It will require another 5-7 years of cellaring to show its full potential." -92+ Points- Jay Miller- Wine Advocate
"Bodega Monteviejo is owned and operated by Chateau Le Gay, of Pomerol. The wines made at this very special property in Argentina are treated with the same dedication and care as those produced back home in Bordeaux. The vineyards, over 100 hectares, are located in the commune of Tunuyan, just 80km south of the city of Mendoza. The goal here is to create wines that can compete with the world's best.
"Yields are kept low and the vineyard is vertically trained, with vines planted at a density of 5,500 vines per hectare. This configuration corresponds to the region's traditional method of planting old vine Malbec at 1.8m x 1m spacing...The goal here is nothing less than to create some of the world's best wines. This winery was created by Catherine Pere-Verge and is one of the most ambitious Argentinean project of late. Her friend Michel Rolland is in charge of winemaking with Marcelo Peleritti, the manager of the winery." -Importer
