Almaviva 2019

Valle del Maipo

Almaviva is "one of the New World's greatest reds". No surprise perhaps when it's from Bordeaux's top name, the Rothschild family, who invested in Chile in the 1990s. From the very good 2019 vintage, it's full-bodied, powerful, rich and spiced.

In 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild (of Mouton Rothschild fame) and Concha y Toro set about creating a Grand Cru Classé of Chile. They called it Almaviva. Their debut release in 1998 was a spectacular hit, and it gets better each year. All the grapes come from Puente Alto in the Maipo Valley, known for its very fine Cabernets from stony soils and a moderate climate. Almaviva is classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with Carmenère, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. It's a perfect fusion of the two cultures – Chile offers its soils, climate and its vineyards, while France contributes its winemaking flare and tradition. The result is a wonderfully elegant and complex wine, aged 18 months in new French oak. Best decanted.

"Iodine and blackcurrants with roses and lavender make the wine extremely perfumed. It’s full-bodied" James Suckling
