Product Details

Jean Benegas Dom Tiburcio is a fantastic value Bordeaux blend made by a winemaker who is passionate about the wines of his French cousins but still proudly Argentine. 50% Malbec, 20% Cab Franc, 20% Cab Sauv, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot. A nose of black fruits, spices, white pepper, clove, cardamon, eucalyptus, thyme and rosemary - complex in other words, with a fantastic finish.

The idea that Argentina is a New World wine producing country is blown out of the water by Bodegas Benegas. Federico Benegas Lynch was raised at 'El Trapiche', a winery established in 1883 by his great, great grandfather, Don Tiburcio Benegas, one of the original pioneers of Argentine wine. The winery was finally sold in the 1970s and in 1998, following a successful business career in Buenos Aires, Federico returned to Mendoza and bought La Libertad, an historic 40-hectare vineyard with 'soils' of stone on the old upper Mendoza riverbank in Cruz de Piedra, and an old winery that belonged to his mother's family which he quickly set about refurbishing. His idea was based on the traditional French Châteaux system, where proprietorship of vineyard and winery are inextricably linked.
