About Terrazas de los Andes
In the 1950s, Moet realized that the global demand for sparkling wines was outpacing their production capabilities. They began searching for ideal vineyard locations outside of France. They ended up settling on Mendoza, founding Bodegas Chandon, known for its fruity sparkling wines.

(aged in an 80/20 blend of French and American oak, 30% new): Bright ruby-red. Sexy, musky aromas of plum, currant, tobacco leaf, chocolate and smoke, complicated by roasted fruit and floral nuances (I might have guessed cabernet sauvignon!). Plush, broad and sweet; fuller than the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva, conveying an impression of thickness without excess weight. Finishes very long and seamless, with wonderfully ripe tannins and lingering sweetness of fruit.
