Presentation

The idea of a partnership between Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and the Catena family was born in 1998. The initial enthusiasm quickly developed into a plan to produce a unique wine that would combine two cultures, French and Argentine, two grape varieties, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, and the expertise of both families.
Right from the start of the project, Domaines Barons de Rothschild and the Catena family placed great importance on selecting the location of the vineyards. The objective was to choose the best terroirs to enhance the alliance between Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Today this selection is made from the Catena family's vineyards and from other producers that represent the great terroirs of Mendoza, especially those with old Malbec vines. The Malbec comes from Vistalba, La Consulta, Tupungato and Agrelo (vineyards with vines of an average age of more than 30 years, located at altitudes between 800 and 1400 m). The Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Agrelo and La Consulta (vineyards with vines of an average age of 20 years, at altitudes of between 950 and 1150 m).
