Almaviva Conchya Toro Rothschild Collaboration 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Assemblage Cabernet Sauvignon: 74% Carmenère: 21% Cabernet Franc: 5% Barrel Aging 18 Months, new French oak Tasting Notes Dark ruby red, intense and opaque. The nose is deep and complex, remarkably rich and concentrated, revealing fresh ripe fruits aromas, wild strawberries, black currant and blackberries nicely associated with mineral notes, spices, tobacco and coffee. The attack is powerful, ample and silky, immediately revealing a well-balanced and harmonious structure. The tannins are ripe and round, nicely enveloped by flavorful hints of vanilla, toasted orange zest, lavender, chocolate, and licorice. The finish is long, mineral and silky, enhancing the richness of the ripe fruit and the elegance of the tannins. A superb wine of an exceptional finesse and remarkable expression.

Viña Almaviva:
In 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, 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. Produced under the joint technical supervision of both partners, the first vintage achieved immediate international success upon its launch in 1998.

Fantastic wine. Not so potent as some other Chileans, but elegant and complex. Great experience. (Drank it 2006)

Very smoky with berry coffee and tobacco aromas. Full-bodied with polished velvety tannins plenty of fruit and a cedary aftertaste. Tight and compacted. This is better than the 2000 Mouton...Solid and very very fine. Persists for a long time on the palate... Wine Spectator.

Dichte, tiefe Cabernet-Würze, viel Stoff, mit wohlproportionierten Muskeln, sehr präsent, wuchtig und harmonisch zugleich.

A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc, the opaque purple-colored, chunky 2001 Mouton-Rothschild does not possess the finesse and stature often achieved by this first-growth. It offers a tell-tale cassis-scented nose, and a monolithic, medium to full-bodied style with relatively high, austere tannin in the finish (a characteristics I also noticed in cask). A dry, angular, backward effort for the vintage, it should be forgotten for at least a decade. Let s hope the fruit continues to expand and sweeten, but that s no sure thing. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025+.

This brick house of a wine shows plenty of Pauillac-like hints of iron, dried currant and cigar smoke, but also has layers of Chilean loam, blackberry, plum, spice and minerals. A powerful performance in a powerful vintage. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmen... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from in Chile. 2001 Almaviva 750ml
