A pioneer in the Uco Valley, Bodega Piedra Negra was established in 1996. François Lurton was the first person to plant vines in the foothills of the Andes Cordillera (at an altitude of 1,100 m.a.s.l.) in semi-desert conditions in the middle of what would become the Geographical Indication of Los Chacayes. The poor, gravelly, alluvial soil reminded him of Pessac-Léognan in Bordeaux! Drawing on expertise acquired all over the world, he immediately introduced environmentally friendly growing methods. His 99 hectares of vines are managed organically and in adherence to biodynamic principles. In addition to Argentine selections of Malbec, the estate also grows French selections of the grape (known as Cot).

Deep red-garnet colour. Intense red fruit notes, balanced with complex coffee notes from the aging in oak. Complex & full bodied with ripe tannins highlighting the red and black fruits with floral notes showing great length, with mocha nuances on the finish.
