The winery (or bodega) called FLECHAS DE LOS ANDES was born from the partnership between Baron Benjamin deRothschild and Laurent Dassault, as the result of their
research of a great terroir at the foot of the Andes in the Mendoza region.
The name “Flechas de los Andes” or “Andes arrows” refers to the 5 arrows, symbol of the Rothschild family (symbolizing the five brothers at the origin of this dynasty of entrepreneurs). Both families Rothschild and Dassault are aiming to produce a wine of excellence.
Built in 2003 and operational since the 2004 harvest, cellar Flechas de los Andes is a synthesis of all knowledge gained by experience of both partners in Bordeaux (Château Clarke and Château Dassault).
Each harvest is handpicked, hand selected, and then fermented with high quality requirements in the most modern equipment.
At the foot of the Andes, 120 km south of Mendoza, The Malbec variety rules as the king of this unique terroir.
This wine was produced with the greatest care in order to achieve a pure Malbec of reference called : “Gran Malbec”.

Drink: 2014 – 2020.
The 2011 Gran Malbec reveals a restrained nose, with shy notes of blackberry and blueberry and perhaps a faint note of violets enhanced by subtle spices in an overall very pleasant bouquet. The palate is medium to full-bodied and tightly knit, with balance and harmony and the components to age well.
This is great value Malbec! Drink 2014-2020.
Flechas de los Andes is another of the components of the Clos de los 7, with the arrows (flechas) from the Rothschilds.
