    A beautiful wine that combines the skills and expertise of the two families involved, CAtena and ROthschild, hence CARO. Rothschild brings a wealth of experience when it comes to Cabernet Sauvignon, while Catena are the masters of Malbec. A unique combination that delivers a wine that's voluptuous and refined wine with a harmonious balance between the wine’s Argentinian identity and its Bordeaux style.

    Ageing in oak barrels from the Tonnellerie des Domaines in Pauillac adds subtle notes of nutmeg to the wine. This vintage shows an exceptional complexity. The fruit is bright and luminous, supported by well integrated oak and a refreshing acidity. The tannins are soft and silky and contribute to the wine’s persistence.

  • Excited to bring you two wines from one of the world's greatest wine collaborations. Bodegas Caro was formed in 1999 thorugh the partnership of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and the Catena family. Initial enthusiasm quickly became a concrete plan to produce a single wine that would combine French and Argentine cultures and the two signature grapes of each producer, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.
