Food Pairings for J. Bouchon Carménère Reserva Chicureo
The color shows the early stages of evolution, with a slightly orange fringe. The background is a frank carmine. The nose is not so sweet compared to Carmenère syrupy. Instead of pepper on the vigor that one would expect from a Cabernet. Not unpleasant (blackcurrant, more leaf than fruit, red currant). On the palate, slightly tannic attack (softer than the nose). The same tannins (from the cob or glitch?), welcomed. The body is not exuberant, no rise of heat or alcohol. The finish is correct, without dryness. It took the back to find a little cocoa, again without caricature. Tasting date: 23 October 2010 Maturity: Drink now Reviews of maturity: I do not think the greenness leave room for more flavors built. So now enjoy the freshness it provides.
