Wine tasting notes

Aspect: Carmine red with a purple tint. Nose: Powerful and complex with intense, forward fruit, the nose opens on black plum and blackberry aromas mingled with notes of spice. Palate: The wine has a very good attack, good substance and balanced concentration and acidity, with very round, silky and fine tannins offering a velvety mouthfeel. The mid-palate reveals intense black fruit and blackberry flavours together with attractive black pepper and mocha notes, building to a long, powerful and complex finish typical of Colchagua Valley Carmenere.

Expert reviews

Decanter (2018) - 91 pts

hilean Carmenère with a French accent from Baron Philippe de Rothschild. The nose is loaded with aromas of blackcurrant leaf, coffee, black fruit and dark chocolate. Harmonious palate: notes of black pepper, roasted coffee and dark chocolate are threaded through the lingering smooth, deep black fruit, balanced by good freshness. This vintage has seen a refinement of the winemaking style, with less new oak (eight months in second-use French barrels), reflected in the well integrated tannins. Drinking Window 2021 - 2025
