10 years of aging (5 in casks and 5 in the bottle) is not at all common in the South American wine scene; however, for López it is something common in his most ambitious line, Montchenot. And this version follows the path of this traditional Argentine label. It has 70% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot and 10% malbec in a wine that is juicy, rich in red fruit, with sweet spice and coffee tones. Fine, very delicate tannins, supporting the fruit, accentuating the refined side of the wine.

Montchenot is a range released many years after the harvest. I tasted the 2013 Montchenot 10 años that was only bottled in May 2022. It's a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Malbec, which they described as Left Bank Bordeaux with the Argentinean touch of Malbec. This was first produced in 1956 and released in 1966, always conceived as a wine with long aging; it's not old bottles that they sell later. It's silky, complex, developed and polished, a little à la Viña Tondonia but with the Bordeaux twist, herbal and peppery, with a touch of paprika, still keeping the poise and freshness, even some fruit. It was kept in large oak vats for 48 months. 60,000 bottles.
