Vina Almaviva Puente Alto 2010
JS97: "A joint venture of Concha y Toro and Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Almaviva made a wonderful red in 2010. Full-bodied, it shows purity of fruit, with violets, currants and hints of mint, and has ultra-fine tannins and a long, intense finish. Needs three or four years to soften. Mostly cabernet sauvignon."
Almaviva is a joint venture between Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Viña Concha Y Toro, often called the “Opus One of Chile". The wine combines the best of the Chilean terroir with the best of the Bordeaux winemaking tradition. The winemaker, Michel Friou, spent time at Chateau Margaux. This is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon. Full bodied with really beautiful fruit and a long finish.
