is a wine which comes from 13 hectares of one of the oldest vineyards in Mendoza, Argentina. Planted with ungrafted Malbec and Cabernet dating from 1935, the Bodega Poesia estate is located in the heart of Lujan de Cuyo, a historic site, commonly known as the "primera zona" for the Argentine Malbec.
The traditional work in the Bodega Poesia vineyards is environmentally-friendly, without the use of pesticides or herbicides. Low production, as well as harvesting by hand, helps to preserve the natural qualities of the grapes. The vinification of the Bodega Poesia wines takes place in small wooden vats and stainless steel tanks. This rare wine also undergoes malolactic fermentation and 18 months ageing in new French oak barrels specially imported from Bordeaux.
The Bodega Poesia wines are blended wines, made from grapes from a single property, whose vines are planted in clay-loam soil with a gravelly subsoil. Owners, Hélène Garcin & Patrice Lévêque, wanted to reveal the identity of a region as the Garcin family are wont to do for their great Bordeaux wines: Clos L'Eglise in Pomerol, Château Branon and Haut-Bergey in Pessac–Léognan and Château Barde-Haut in Saint-Emilion.
