Why do we love it?
You will never forget the first time you taste Guarda Cabernet Franc Bodega Lagarde. Its intoxicating aroma of purple flowers and the dense red and black fruit, combined with unpretentious elegance and silky tannins immediately will put it on the list of your favorite red wines!

Bodega Lagarde is a family winery in Mendoza and is currently run by sisters Sofia and Lucila Pescarmona (the third generation of winemakers). Believing in both the Mendoza microclimate and the people who work with them, they have dedicated themselves to creating expressive, top wines in small batches.

The Guarda Cabernet Franc Bodega Lagarde is one of them and comes from a 27-year-old vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo, at an altitude of 960 meters. The wine is fermented with ambient yeasts, at relatively high temperatures. After that, the wine matures for 12 months in French oak barrels acquiring an intense spicy character and impressive complexity.

Guarda Cabernet Franc Bodega Lagarde is a sumptuous, juicy Cabernet with the dense fruit of the New World and elegance that follows the lead of the Loire Valley.

GUARDA CABERNET FRANC 2018 - BODEGA LAGARDE

PAIR IT

with braised beef with vegetables, striploin with aromatic herbal butter, or a roasted pork knuckle with red wine sauce.

Beef stew with red wine

  • 1 kg of boneless beef cut into bits
  • 4 tbsps. flour
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsps. olive oil
  • 1 cup of dry red wine
  • 1 cube beef broth
  • 1/2 tsp. dry thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 pack of small fresh mushrooms, whole
  • baby carrots
  • salt
  • pepper

 

 

Wipe the meat with kitchen paper to absorb excess moisture. Stir in a bowl 3 tablespoons of flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, paprika and pepper and sprinkle the meat with the flour mixture.

Sautee the meat in hot olive oil in moderate to strong heat, stirring frequently,  for 4-6 minutes or until it acquires a golden brown color. Remove the meat from the pot. Add the red wine, stirring well to incorporate with the meat residues from the bottom of the pot.

Put the meat back in the pot and add the broth, thyme, bay leaf, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Once it starts boiling, cover the pot, lower the heat in half and allow the meat to cook for about an hour, stirring occasionally. You can accompany your meat with wild rice.
