Cuvée Ann Malbec Rosé arriving Mid-May
Cuvée Ann Private Selection Rosé 2019- $11.99 by Ann Coppinger

Since 2007 we’ve been beating the Malbec drum. A maligned varietal in Bordeaux that blossoms in warmer climates, our south Boulder customers have enjoyed our “Madness” and become expert tasters. During those years, I have become very familiar with the terroirs of Argentina and have determined preferred winemakers. One of them is Jimena Lopez. She caught my attention because her wines display her true talent and varietal purity.

Jimena is a native of Mendoza, formally educated in enology and viticulture in Mendoza and made her first wine while in High School. She was the only female in her classes, and even 18 years later, Argentinian winemakers are primarily male-dominated. 

Today, she is married to Pablo the chief winemaker of Chandon in Argentina and the mother of two girls. Jimena won her first medal in wine in 2002, and is predominantly known for her Malbecs from Graffito. All of her creations have garnered 90+ points from critics for the past five years.

In 2017 Jimena released a rosé of Malbec. It was bright, clean, and an elegant expression of a not-so-subtle grape. In early 2019 I began talking to Jimena’s importers hoping to get her expertise in creating my own rosé label.

I am one of those people that thinks Rosé should be served year-round. It is the perfect accompaniment for all cuisine, all the time, and I wanted Jimena Lopez to make a rosé that I could put my name on.

Jimena sent numerous trials for me to consider. In early February 2020, I designated the perfect cuvée. This is 100% Malbec, hand-harvested in February 2019 from vineyards in Uco Valley, Lujan de Cuyo and Rivadavia in Mendoza. It spent 2 months on it’s lees, all stainless steel vats, with Bentonite fining.

This rosé is an ideal example of what a Malbec rosé should be. It has aromas of strawberries and cherries but it has underlying notes of spice and pepper. The palate has medium body and is balanced. This is a fresh, crisp and refreshing wine that while being elegant, showcases the power of Argentinian Malbec. A perfect celebratory wine for our 50th year in business. 

We can’t wait for its arrival. Don’t worry …we’re sharing.
