DOC stands for denominacion de origen controlado in Spanish so a consumer can identify exactly where the item they wish to purchase is from. It is rare to find labelled DOC Argentine wines at wine tastings in Argentina, simply because there are not that many of them. In Argentina, the only two sub-regions with a DOC attached (denominacion de origen controlado), Lujan De Cujo and San Rafael, both in Mendoza. Lujan de Cujo and Maipu are known as the primera zonaor premium winemaking area, throughout history having the best wines of Argentina.
Bodega Lagarde is one of the oldest family wineries in Argentina. The Lagarde Malbec DOC is one of Argentina’s most iconic premium single vineyard Malbec with 100+ year old vines. The vineyard was planted in 1906 and is located 900 metres above sea level, at the birthplace of Malbec in Mendoza, just at the foot of the Andes Mountains.
This has been made with the most uncompromising attention to detail imaginable. To put it into context, hail is prevalent at this altitude and often destroys the crops. The winery refuses to use hail nets to make this wine as they interfere with the maturation of the grapes. In other words, they are willing to take what nature hands out to make the best wines possible, even if it’s taking the risk of losing everything. This is truly a stunning wine, silky tannins, rich cherries and plums, chocolate, right level of oak influence and just delicious.
Red cherries, strawberry jam, chocolate, vanilla and smoke. Tannins are well integrated, good structure, ultra-smooth Malbec. A proud icon of Argentine Malbec
