Marcelo Pelleriti First Argentine Winemaker to Receive 100 Parker Points for Bordeaux Wine

Algodon Partners would like to congratulate our own Senior Wine Consultant and winemaker, Marcelo Pelleriti, for the recent top accolade awarded to him from the world's leading wine critic, Robert Parker.  Marcelo was honored with a perfect score of 100 points from Parker for his wine Chateau La Violette 2010, a Merlot made in Pomerol.  This score is unprecedented for an Argentinean winemaker.  Marcelo also received the honor of 99 Parker points for his Merlot/Cabernet Franc blend from Chateau Le Gay. 

Receiving a perfect score from Robert Parker, the most influential wine critic on the planet, is rare enough that it can significantly sway the market, effectively quadrupling the price of a bottle.  In an interview with WineSur.com, Marcelo says he believes the recent successes lies in part due to the age of the vineyards and in part due to micro-vinification, a specialized winemaking process that he also employs at Algodon. 

“This epitomizes the importance of what it means to have Marcelo on our team at Algodon,” says Scott Mathis, Founder of Algodon Wine Estates, “Our vision from the beginning was to create the highest quality, internationally recognized wines, and to be associated with winemakers of world-class caliber. Our thought has always been that if we can produce great wines, it might have a positive overall effect on the value of our Argentina vineyards for sale.” Read about Algodon’s Mendoza winery and recent accolades awarded to Algodon Wines by clicking here.
