Top 10 Argentine winemakers to watch

24th March, 2015 by db_staff

Lorena Mulet, Bodega Cruzat

lorenaMulet has been making some of Argentina’s top sparkling wines for over a decade, and there is still more to look forward to. At only 35, she is the right hand of South America’s most experienced sparkling wine producer Pedro Rosell at Bodega Cruzat. Having studied under Rosell, Mulet went on to Luigi Bosca where she specialised in sparkling and fine wines, while also consulting for other sparkling wine producers. Five years ago, Rosell selected his former pupil Mulet to help run the production of Cruzat by his side and she hasn’t looked back. While Rosell, aged 78, is still very much part of Cruzat, Mulet has a promising future as one of Argentina’s leaders in the category. Producing some of the country’s best Champenoise- and Charmat-method bubbly, Cruzat is already the yardstick for Argentine sparkling wine. The team has another game-changing sparkling wine up its sleeve though, to be released in the next couple of months: “We are preparing the launch of a special edition millésime,” reveals Mulet. “These are two sparkling wines that have only been produced in very small productions and when the harvest acquires an exceptional quality. They were both bottled over four years ago, from the 2006 harvest. One is 100% Pinot Noir, and the other Pinot Noir-Chardonnay.” These will undoubtedly add more sparkle to Mulet’s already bright future.
