Kæmpemæssig argentiner fra den største af de største. Nicolas Catena Zapata er legendarisk og har her skabt en vin, der minder om Bordeaux, og som har en kvalitet, der kunne berettige en langt højere pris.

Du finder næppe større vinmagere i Argentina end Nicolas Catena Zapata. Siden han blev sat i spidsen for familiens vingård i det mægtige argentinske Mendoza-område i 1963, har han dels arbejdet benhårdt for at få sin internationale erfaring til at smitte af på de hjemlige marker, og han har arbejdet mindst ligeså hårdt for, at udbyttet kunne forarbejdes på en måde, der giver vine af en standard, som det er svært at opstøve i Argentina.

Med en total ombygning af vingården og vinmarkerne, kan Catena Zapata nu bygge sine vine på de allerbedste Malbec- og Cabernet Sauvignon-druer fra det fineste område i det sydamerikanske, hvor de både bliver præget af solens modning og af de højt beliggende markers kølige udtryk.

I denne anmelderroste årgang 2020 består vinen af 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc og 21% Malbec, og har lagret 18 måneder i franske egetræsfade, i en kombination af nye og brugte fade.

Bemærk den længere leveringstid på Beyond Bordeaux. Vinene leveres senest 31. december 2023.

James Suckling - 98

Cassis, tobacco, wet stones, iron and baking spices to the nose, showing class, restraint and complexity. Medium- to full-bodied on the palate with super fine tannins. Dry, super elegant and silky with a lengthy, polished finish. Really Bordeaux-like. Juicy and long. 54% cabernet sauvignon from Gualtallary, 25% cabernet franc from Altamira and 21% malbec from both areas. The highest portion of cabernet franc this year helped retain its nervy freshness! This is classy and beautiful. Harvested on March 12th and 13th. Drink or hold.

Decanter - 97

Wonderfully aromatic and nuanced on the nose, so alive and open. Energetic and lively on the palate, this has so much spark and brightness to it. Really compelling from the first sip, the tannins ample and cushioning the slick black fruit and accompanying savoury spices. Feels lean and taught, but with so much flair. Really a lovely expression, so generous and well defined. Youthful as you’d expect right now but when this softens it will be a beauty. Just gorgeous, with a minty fresh finish. Wine director Alejandro Vigil, winemaker Fernando Buscema.

Jane Anson - 97

Measured and steady release of supple brambled fruits, wonderfully fragrant and well judged, this combines depth of fruit flavour with softly expressed tannins, crayon, truffles, black pepper and smoked oak. Such a distinct and vibrant expression of these Left Bank Bordeaux varieties, givien a ripeness in Argentina that they are not always able to get in France, harnessed by the grace and careful precison of the Catena family. Brilliant vintage of this landmark Argentinian wine. Ungrafted vines, Fernando Buscema winemaker, Alejandro Vigil wine director, 3.64ph.

Robert Parker - 95

2020 was a very dry and low-yielding year, with 20% to 30% less crop, and the grapes were picked early. The 2020 Nicolás Catena Zapata was produced with a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and 21% Malbec, higher in Franc than ever, for the first time more than Malbec, to compensate the warm and dry conditions. The wine is ripe and very peppery, with 13.9% alcohol and a pH of 3.64. It matured in new and second-use French oak barrels for 18 months. It was a healthy crop with concentration and ripeness, and the wine comes through as powerful and quite classical, still a little oaky, with power and balance. 60,000 bottles were filled in January 2020.
