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).

Intense deep cherry colour with violet rim. The Côt component on the nose brings great freshness, aromas of black and red berried fruits and a note of violets very particular of Los Chacayes. Soft and elegant tannins on the palate are allied to a great core of concentrated fruit, all in perfect balance.
