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

James Suckling (JS) : 94 Points (2020)
This has intense, engaging aromas of dried cherries, grilled plums, chocolate, hazelnuts, dried orange peel and nutmeg. It’s medium-to full-bodied with silky tannins. Supple, bright and packed with sun-kissed fruit and spice. There’s plenty of tension, too. Tight finish. Best after 2024.

Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2020)
The difference between the 2020 Grand Père Pinot Noir and the Grand Mère comes from the soils, and this suffers less in warmer years because the plants get less stressed and have more water. So, within the riper style of the year, this has more austerity, but it's still juicy, medium-bodied and fine-boned, with 13% alcohol and some spiciness from the barrels in the finish. 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)

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2019)
Opens with mushroom-laced cherry and berry notes, gathering intensity midpalate around fresh acidity and hints of thyme. Ends with smooth tannins and a note of caramel.
