14. Jacques & Francois Lurton Hacienda Araucano Clos de Lolol Colchagua Valley (2008)

« Prev Next » 14 of 35
Pretty and perfumed with scents of french oak and vanilla framing the core of red currant and black cherry fruit. This has a fine herbal steak to it and a lightly floral top note that recalls fennel and citrus flowers. A little light on entry, this flashes a hint of white chocolate early on the palate, which is followed by a nice combination of wood spice and fresh, lightly spicy red berry fruit with a hint of pomegranate. Nicely firm in the mouth, the balance between the fine-grained, well-managed tannins and moderate acidity lends this a slight austerity in the mouth which is refreshing and mostly covered by the fruit today. The finish is lightly peppery with hints of licorice and cinnamon. Classically styled and quite enjoyable today, this should improve over the next 2-4 years. 91pts
