Cheval des Andes 2020 has been released through La Place de Bordeaux at €62.40 per bottle ex-négociant.
It is being offered internationally for £804 per 12×75, 1.5% lower than last year’s opening price (£816 per 12×75).
The wine was rated 98 points by The Wine Advocate. Critic Luis Gutierrez said ‘the wine has the ultra sleek and polished texture and the elegance and the balance that is the signature here; the wine is very clean and precise’. He further noted that ‘overall, this is a triumph over the adverse conditions of the vintage. They produced their usual 100,000 bottles (since 2018), as they are renewing their vineyards and want to keep the volume stable’.
Jane Anson awarded the wine 97 points, calling it ‘great stuff, playing at a high level’.
Meanwhile, Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (The Wine Independent) awarded the wine 95 points.
The new release comes at a premium to others on the market.
The 2018 and 2019 vintages look good value in relation to today’s release. They were both scored the same 98 points by the Wine Advocate as the 2020 and are available at discounts of 22.9% and 20.2% respectively.
