More information on wine critics and ratings
Aromas of red fruits, such as cherries and strawberries. As it opens, a little black fruit combined with a spicy character of black pepper and cinnamon. Medium acidity. Horizontal mouth.
Armed with the vision of elevating Catena and Argentine wines to stand with the best in the world, Catena’s high standard of excellence has brought them much acclaim over the years, for their wines and for their work. Most recently, Nicolás Catena Zapata was the recipient of Wine Enthusiast’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2021, while his daughter Laura Catena, fourth generation vintner, as well as physician and author, has been called “the face of Argentine wine”… Read more

Sliced mushrooms, cranberries, sour cherries, lemons, dried flowers and oyster shells on the nose. Medium-bodied, fresh and vibrant with tight, seamless tannins. Salty, mineral undertones. Serious pinot. Best after 2024.

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2020)
The 2020 Grand Mère Pinot Noir is a single-vineyard Pinot Noir from vines planted in the Domingo Vineyard, which is cooler than the one used for Grand Père, at 1,120 meters in altitude in Villa Bastías in Tupungato by the river. The Domingo Vineyard has a lot of stones, but the warmth is compensated by a southern exposure. The wine has moderate ripeness and alcohol, 13.5%, and a delicate profile, but it shows the effect of the warmer year. The oaking is neat, but the imprint of the year in Pinot is quite high; it's quite transparent, also with the soils. It has a varietal profile, clean and harmonious, with spicy flavors and fine tannins. Best after 2022.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 92 Points (2019)
The 2019 Pinot Noir Grand Mère from Villa Bastías, Uco Valley was fermented and aged for 18 months in a 1/5 new French barrels. A light ruby color with an orange meniscus, the nose offers sour and Maraschino cherries with hints of earth and nutmeg alongside clear notes from the aging process. Full of flavor in the mouth, it is smooth and terse with a packaged, well-integrated freshness that keeps the flavors going at length. (JH) (11/2021)
