Wines of the New World: vertical tasting of Cheval des Andes

Food & Wine Experience
About This Project

For Cheval des Andes, in the elegant setting of the Hidalgo Restaurant in Postal (BZ), a true temple of drinking and eating culture, Rossi&Bianchi organized a vertical tasting dinner featuring some of the most significant vintages. A unique pearl among New World wines, Cheval des Andes was born in Argentina in the foothills of the Andes from an elegant and refined Grand Cru.

The ancient wisdom of producers in one of the most prestigious areas of Bordeaux and the excellence of an area famous for its high-altitude vineyards come together in these wines. It was towards the end of the 1950s, in fact, that Moët & Chandon, aware of the interesting potential of the South American territory, decided to send one of its best winemakers, Renaud Poirier, to test the different areas of the new continent for the production of sparkling wines.

Subsequently, an encounter with the legendary Bordeaux Maison of Château Cheval Blanc takes place, giving rise to a new production, Cheval des Andes, enhanced by the work of Pierre Lurton, former winemaker at Château Cheval Blanc.
