A separate winery owned by Domaine Vistalba, Fabre Montmayou was established in the Lujan de Cuyo region of Mendoza in 1992. It’s a quality wine region at an altitude of 1150 m, and these wines are fashioned in a fairly serious non-fruit-forward style. Restrained and not too modern. Nice.

Fabre Montmayou Chardonnay 2001
90% stainless steel fermented, 10% in oak. Crisp, creamy nose. Palate is nutty and tight knit with good intensity and ripe tropical fruit notes. Very good+

Fabre Montmayou Caberet Sauvignon 2000
Deep coloured. A slightly restrained nose leading to a savoury palate with a herby edge to the muted blackcurrant fruit. Already showing some evolution: a slightly old fashioned style. Very good

Fabre Montmayou Malbec 2000
This deep coloured wine is dense and herby, with nicely balanced spicy-edged fruit. A savoury, restrained style. Very good/excellent

Fabre Montmayou Merlot 2000
Deep coloured. Some sweetness to the liquoricey, blackcurrant fruit on the nose. The palate has a nice herbal character with firm tannins and lots of structure. Quite a big European-styled wine. Very good/excellent

Fabre Montmayou Grand Vin 1999
Deep, rich intense nose with herbal-tinged ripe berry fruit. Quite complex and restrained. The palate is dense with a good concentration of savoury fruit, backed up with firm tannins and acidity. Very elegant. Very good/excellent
