This incredible wine is the result of a union between two great lovers of wine, Laurent Dassault and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild, two names associated with the giants of the wine world. Their joint project started in 2003 with the purchase of the Arrows of the Andes winery, located at the foot of the Andes, south of Mendoza. Well known for its Malbec, head winemaker Pablo Richardi, blends superbly the Malbec with Cabernet Franc to produce a sensational wine which is aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels. The end result is that your senses are teased with strong aromas of ripe fruits, cassis, liquorice and spicy touches. On the palate, rich and round with dense tannins. It is a powerful wine, with a sweet expression and a long ending. It's not a cellar without a few of these tucked away.
