James Suckling (JS) : 95 Points (2017)
A wonderful blend that shows structure with finesse, through a medium-to full-bodied, compact palate of ripe yet fine tannins and attractive fruit. Complex flavors of chocolate, hazelnuts and currants. A blend of malbec, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot and tannat.

Tim Atkin (TA) : 95 Points (2015)
Gran Corte is an assemblage of mostly Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon with some Merlot, Petit Verdot and Tannat, sourced from Agrelo and Los Árboles. Much more than the sum of its parts, it has fine texture, intense flavours of orange zest, blackberry and cassis and balancing acidity.
