  • James Suckling, September 2017, Score: 100

    A glorious and complex nose of tobacco, blackberries and hints of stones and flowers. Hints of bitter chocolate. Full-bodied, very tight and compacted. Linear backbone gives this form and tension. It has the same character on the palate as well as cayenne and other spice. Loved the 2014 but this shows more fine-grained tannins. So balanced and harmonious. A blend of 69% cabernet sauvignon, 24% carmenere, 5% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot. Needs four or five years in bottle but a joy to taste now.

In 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle, Chairman of Viña Concha y Toro S.A., sealed a partnership agreement with a view to create an exceptional Franco-Chilean wine called Almaviva. 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. Produced under the joint technical supervision of both partners, the result is an exceptionally elegant and complex wine with the first vintage achieving immediate international success upon its launch in 1998. The name Almaviva, though it has an Hispanic sonority, belongs to classical French literature: Count Almaviva is the hero of The Marriage of Figaro, the famous play by Beaumarchais (1732-1799), later turned into an opera by the genius of Mozart. The label bears the name Almaviva in Beaumarchais’ own handwriting. Read less

Region

Chile

Chile is a long, narrow country down the south west coast of South America. It has a warm, reliable Mediterranean climate with uninterrupted sunlight, which is cooled by the Humboldt Current from the Pacific and the descending air from the Andes. This is the ideal climate for viticulture and leads to lots of vibrant, healthy fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot-Carmenère, and Cabernet blends dominate Chile's red wine exports and can provide extremely good-value wines for drinking withintwo or three years. As for white wines, they are mainly varietally labelled Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc wines, especially from cooler areas such as Casablanca and San Antonio.
