San Pablo, Valle de Uco, Mendoza

“Take Note—This is a Winery to Follow”
-Sommelier Journal

Tapiz is one of the most renowned and awarded Argentine wineries. Winemaker Fabian Valenzuela was joined by Jean Claude Berrouet in 2012. Jean Claude is the recently-retired winemaker of Petrus, having presided over 44 vintages at this revered Bordeaux winery. Tapiz is proud that Jean Claude chose to work with them exclusively in Argentina. All of the Tapiz fruit comes from the winery's famed San Pablo vineyard in Mendoza's Uco Valley. San Pablo is one of the highest altitude vineyards in Mendoza (4,600 feet above sea level). This extreme altitude provides for warm days which impart concentration to the grapes, and cold nights which give natural acidity. The state-of-the-art winery is located in the vineyard.

Fabian and Jean Claude work together to create a beautiful tapiz (tapestry) between the wine's lush fruit and its oak aging. These full-bodied yet elegant wines have the acidity and complexity to drink on their own or complement food. As Restaurant Wine exclaimed: “Tapiz is a very consistent producer of excellent wines.”

90 points, Wine Spectator ('11); 91 points, Stephen Tanzer ('11):
“...fat, ripe and sweet in the mouth, with a sexy leesy complexity to the deep flavors of blackberry, mocha, chocolate, herbs and licorice. Creamy, mouthcoating wine with substantial ripe tannins and lingering notes of cassis, licorice and herbs. Legendary Pomerol winemaker Jean-Claude Berrouet, who made more than 40 vintages at Chateau Petrus, is now involved at Tapiz. An extraordinary value.”

Tapiz Chardonnay Alta Collection
93 points, James Suckling ('17);
91 points, Wine Advocate ('15):
"The 2015 Alta Collection Chardonnay shows good freshness and restraint, no doubt the combination of a cool place (San Pablo in the Uco Valley) in a cool vintage, plus the hand of an experienced winemaker like Jean-Claude Berrouet. There are balsamic notes intermixed with white flowers and a subtle hint of oak. The palate shows very good balance and pungent flavors, long and fresh. Deliciously classical."

Obtained from cold maceration in contact with the Malbec grapes for 24 hours. No malolactic. A seductive nose of ripe red fruits and crisp mouth-feel.

Tapiz Reserva "Selección de Barricas"
94 points, James Suckling ('13); 94 points, Wine & Spirits ('12);
92 points, Wine Advocate ('08):
“a blend of 40% Malbec, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 10% Syrah, fermented in stainless steel and raised in new French and American oak for 18 months. It has an opulent yet well-delineated bouquet of small dark cherries, blueberry, marmalade and fresh dates. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy, supple tannins that cloak the dense broody core of blackberry, blueberry and balsamic.”
93 points and "Editors' Choice," Wine Enthusiast ('07).

93 points, Wine Spectator ('14);
94 points & Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast ('11):
""Pure, ripe blackberry aromas are heady, toasty and crisp like burnt bread crust. This Malbec has a profound, drawing mouthfeel defined by full extraction and muscular tannins. Savory flavors of blackberry and roasted plum end with depth, focus and welcome freshness."
