Almaviva . Vino de Origen Chileno. Bodegas Mouton Rotschild. Varid 2001
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.

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.
First wine I tasted at the 2009 Wine Spectator Grand Tour. Phenomenal and exquisite bordeaux!!

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

It may have been abandoned in its Bordeaux home, but Carmenère has found a home and a new life in Chile. It makes red wines with good juicy fruit, freshness, flavors of ripe plums. This example, blended with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Syrah, is a great wine just to drink, full of fruit, with a touch of toast, vanilla and smooth tannins.

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.

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