Domaine Nico Soeur et Freres - 'Le Paradis' Pinot Noir 2016


Domaine Nico is named after Laura's daughter, Nicola, which pays homage to Laura's great grand-father, Nicola Catena, founder of Catena Zapata winery in 1902.

"Domaine Nico was born from my obsession for Burgundy Pinot Noir. When I realized we could make a Pinot Noir with the classic floral aromas, minerality and elegance, we began studying the flavors of high altitude Pinot Noir from Mendoza. The wines that came up surprised me with their elegance and old-worldstyle. It’s the aluvional and calcareous terroir that speaks through these wines." - Laura Catena

This cool climate vineyard that belongs to Laura and her sister Adrianna Catena feels like paradise itself to Laura. It is lined by trees and fruit orchards, with majestic views of the Andes. Inside the 12 Hectare vineyard, there is a little house with two tiny bedrooms and a kitchen, where Laura dreams of spending a whole month reading books - Laura’s version of paradise. The little house is affectionately named Château Laura.   

"High intensity of mineral elements such as chalk, with some reduction and herbal notes. A few minutes after opening, berry aromatics appear. Layered and every-increasing aromas. Subtle, integrated oak. High acidity. Fine tannins." - Winemaker notes
