With the first vine planted in 1897, Lagarde is one of the oldest wineries in the Mendoza region with Malbec vines over 100 years old. With only two owning families in its history, Lagarde was acquired by the Pescarmona family in 1969. Today the winery is run by young sisters Sofia and Lucila Pescarmona, third generation of the winemaking family During the following decades Lagarde focused on defining its particular style of wines. Striving to consistently innovate Lagarde was the first Latin American producer to plant non-traditional varieties such as Viognier and Moscato Bianco, adding to its unique style. Since 1999, the wines have been under the dedicated supervision of winemaker, Juan Roby, who along with the Pescarmonas enjoy creating high-quality wine made from grapes grown exclusively on their winery-run vineyards. Today the winery and estate are run by third generation Pescarmonas, sisters Sofia and Lucila Pescarmona. Under their direction, Lagarde creates exceptional terroir character wines that reflect a strong sustainable commitment to the land and its people.
Winemaker Notes... Intense aromas dominated by ripe red fruits and jams, combined with soft aromatic contribution of oak, vanilla, chocolate and smoke. Elegant in the mouth, good concentration and smoothness, with silky tannins, typical ofArgentine Malbec.
93 Points James Suckling... This has a very neat feel with fresh dark berries and plums, held in focused, long and seamless style on the palate. Refined tannins. Really well delivered.
