The scores were recently released for James Suckling’s latest report about Argentine wines.
In his most recent visit to Mendoza and Buenos Aires in April, the renowned US critic tasted over 700 Argentine wines and amongst those, Finca La Celia wines excelled with outstanding scores.
La Celia Pioneer Malbec 2014, from the Uco Valley stood out with 93 points and was described in Suckling’s tasting notes as a “refined, beautiful” wine with “Loads of subtle blackberry, dried fruit, spice and flower petal aromas which follow through to a full body with integrated tannins and a fresh finish. Refined and beautiful. Subtle.”
Moreover, La Celia Heritage Malbec 2012, was awarded 92 points, and was highlighted in the tasting notes as a wine that is “more full-throttle style with lots of dried fruit, spicy wood and soy sauce character. Full body, silky tannins.”
This is the James Suckling’s third visit to Argentina, and as reported in his review entitled “The pleasure of Argentina”, during this trip he enjoyed the best tastings so far experienced in the country.
