Full tasting note and wine making –
Bcrux Bodegas y Vinedos O Fournier from Mendoza in Argentina shows characteristics of exceptional quality and the wines have good concentration and aging potential.
The vines are on average 25 years old and the soils are stony and poor in organic matter with a low yield per hectare that ensures that the fruit is concentrated in aromas and flavours. All the grapes were hand-picked and only the best selected for the Bcrux. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with skin contact for 28 days to extract most colour and flavour followed by malolactic fermentation in barrels. The wine was aged for 12 months in new oak barrels of which 80% were French and 20% American oak.
The producer –
Founded at the turn of the millennium by the Spanish Fournier family (José Manuel Ortega), the winery lies beneath the snow-capped Andes at an altitude of almost 4000 ft above sea level in the beautiful Uco Valley. The new winery combines the best of old and new technology: above ground, stainless steel, oak vats and gravity feeds; underground, a cellar designed to hold 2,800 oak barrels at a constant temperature and humidity.
The three vineyards in the La Consulta region of Mendoza are planted to classic red varieties, with an emphasis on Tempranillo. Working with a number of local growers, Bodegas O. Fournier also buy in high quality grapes from old vines to encourage low yields.
The real stars in the Fournier range are ACrux, Alfa Crux and BCrux, the top of the range wines named after the two main stars in the Southern Cross constellation.
