Description

What the Number 68 Signifies:  In 1868 a new grape from Old World France was brought across the treacherous seas to the New World Argentina: Malbec. This foray into the New World brought about new changes for creative expression and passion to arise and be celebrated. In the same way, Jean Charles ventured across the ocean to ignite his creative passions and to craft exquisite wines that unite the Old and New Worlds.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

A lavish, dark wine, the 2014 vintage of Malbec offers inviting aromas of black cherry, vanilla and cardamom.

Palate: 

 Robust flavors of rhubarb, black pepper and dark chocolate drape the palate with each sip. This full bodied wine has rounded tannins and a long lasting finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

For Jean-Charles Boisset, wine transports you to RICH new worlds and far off places. While DARK and enticing upon first glance, our N°68 Malbec is JUICY and satisfying, a true journey for the senses.
