Concha Y Toro Carménère Colchagua Valley Frontera 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.

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

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+.

A simple wine, this offers sweet cherry flavor packed in a light, velvety texture, green herbal notes adding freshness. For barbecue.

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.

...High-pitched aromas of blackberry mint and minerals. Juicy but quite tightly wound today...Juicy acidity contributes to the impression of structure...This penetrating mostly cabernet sauvignon (86%) Mouton will need at least a decade of bottle aging. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

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 ... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Mouton-Rothschild 1500ml

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