Diamandes

Diamandes

In 2005, the Bonnie family, owner of the renowned Château Malartic-Lagravière (Grand Cru Classé de Graves) and of the Château Gazin Rocquencourt (Pessac-Léognan), decided to leave France in search for new horizons in the world of wine. It all began with the acquisition, along with their partners, of a single 130-hectares (321 acres) block of land in the heart of the Uco Valley, to the south of the city of Mendoza. That is where Bodega DiamAndes was born, as a member of the prestigious Clos de los Siete group.

4 /5

Thanks to the climate in the higher elevations of the Uco Valley is created here a unique, interesting variant of the Viognier. And aged for 10 months in oak barrels, this wine varietals stunned then with an explosion of flavors: bright fruits, flint, hints of apricot and fresh almonds, paired with a nice minerality. An elegant and strong personality!

This Viognier is very pleasing to the eye. The Diamandes de Uco Viognier shows exotic floral hints of jasmine.It tasted like wine.
I like it with the meat we ate.
My best friend had tried it and she recommended it to me.

4/5

Very good with rice pudding. I drank it with my brothers and a friend of mine.
To me, this 2016 seemed more yellow than other vintages. Very aromatic, with a predominance of bananas and lychees. I don't know how to describe it, but to me it had a good taste.

Attractive and intense colour. Main aromas of acacia flower.I did not like it so sweet.
The best pairing would have been fish.
I drank it with someone special.
