"The aromas of blackberry leaves and iodine are wild and exotic here with mussel shells and earth underneath. Full-bodied, tight and chewy with powerful tannins that show muscle. Itâs structured and powerful. Dense and very, very deep. Donât touch this until 2025."
For fans of opulent, powerful Cabernet based wines, the 2017 Almaviva is a dream-buy
Almaviva is the joint venture between Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Vina Concha y Toro, much like the joint venture Opus One between Rothschild and Robert Mondavi.
Therefore, itâs not surprising that Almaviva has earned the nickname âthe Opus One of Chile.â This wine combines the absolute best of Chileâs Puente Alto terroir with the absolute best of the Bordeaux winemaking tradition, including help from Chateau Mouton Rothschildâs director, Philippe Dhalluinâ¦ the best of both (Old and New) worlds!
2017 was one of the warmest and driest in Chile, which reduced yields overall but the grapes that did survive showed remarkable concentration and purity!
"Made from a blend of classic Bordeaux varieties, in which Cabernet Sauvignon predominates, Almaviva is the result of a felicitous encounter between two cultures.
Chile offers its soil, its climate and its vineyards, while France contributes its winemaking savoir-faire and traditions.
The result is an exceptionally elegant and complex wine. Its launch was a major milestone in the development of Chilean wines, both in Chile itself and in the international market." - Winery
