95pts James Suckling

Aromas of wild raspberries, mushrooms, white truffles, herbs and smoked meat. It’s medium-to full-bodied with tight-grained, seamless tannins. So silky and mouthwateringly savory, with forest-floor notes turning to spices and herbs. Salty undertones, too. Some bottle age will soften this.

95pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Even better than the amazing 2018 was the 2019 La Savante Pinot Noir, one of the most elegant and perfumed Pinot Noirs from Argentina. It comes from 1.45 hectares planted in 1994 with Pinot Noir clones 115 and 777 in the monastery zone of Gualtallary at 1,450 meters in altitude. It has a chalky texture, very stony and somewhat austere, insinuating, and a long and nuanced finish.

Winemaker Notes

Red fruit with presence of herbs such as thyme, spices, and clove. Medium-high acidity, low alcohol, slight minerality alongside integrated oak and grainy tannins.
