Marques de Casa Concha Chile 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

#17 of Zachys Wine Spectator Top 100 Predictions of 2008"This is dense but racy, thanks to plenty of fine-grained tannins that carry the shaved vanilla bean, black currant paste, fig and loam notes through a super long finish. Additional tobacco and cedar hints chime in on the finish. Really well built, this shows a Maipo profile with Bordeaux-like structure; needs cellaring to fill out fully. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2009 through 2016...95" WS web 01/08"This is the tenth vintage from the partnership between Concha y Toro and Baron Philippe de Rothschild. A blend based on cabernet sauvignon with carmenère and cabernet franc, it yields a sophisticated aroma of red cherry, cassis and blackberry notes. The flavor lives up to this promise, offering pure, mouthwatering fruit. The ripeness creates a soft texture, firmed up by tannins, extending the fruit's depth. Let it evolve for four to five years in the cellar and then pour it with braised veal...94" -W&S 06/08

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.

This wine here in Brazil has an excellent tradition, BUT it is really expensive around US$ 225 or R$ 438 which makes it harder to have it on regular basis.

I'm not at that level where I feel I can give a great review, but to put it simple, it is one of the better wines I have had in my life (which is so far very few, since I just started wine tasting and experimenting this year).

(Barrel tasting) Aromas of very ripe raspberries, with bread crumbs and tobacco. Full-bodied, with silky tannins. Lots of currants on the finish. Not as complex as I hoped, but clearly outstanding, almost classic.

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. Itrsquo;s a baby 1986 Mouton. Solid and very, very fine. Persists for a long time on the palate. Best after 2009.

Almaviva is the hugely successful joint project in Chile between Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Concha y Toro. A Bordeaux style blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Carmenere, and 5% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% new French oak for 18 months. The efforts of the talented winemakers Enrique Tirado and Mouton-Rothschild's Patrick Léon created this 2005 that's gotten nothing less than rave reviews. The Wine Advocate scored it 94 points and the Wine Spectator gave it 95 points saying "Dense but racy, thanks to plenty of fine-grained tannins that carry the shaved vanilla bean, black currant paste, fig and loam notes through a superlong finish. Additional tobacco and cedar hints chime in on the finish. Really well-built, showing a Maipo profile with a Bordeaux-like structure. Needs cellaring to fill out fully. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2009 through 2016." The nice thing about this offer is that these half-bottles are just starting to open up and are drinking beautifully. Don't miss it, very limited! Half-Bottle, 375ml

Marked toasted, ceday oak nose; rich, elegantly balanced, medium-full wine; supple, beautifully proportioned and with superfine, almost plush tannins; prolonged, easy, graceful palate, ripe Bordeaux Cabernet and gentle minerality with superb length. Splendid. 2020–2040.

Cigar tobacco, cedar and red fruit aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a delicate finish. Elegant, seductive Mouton. Best after 2006.

Full ruby-red. Explosive, superripe aromas of black raspberry, currant, graphite and tobacco leaf. Outsized, opulent and generous; this big boy saturates the entire mouth. Thereandrsquo;s an almost exotic character to the plum and cedar flavors. Spreads out impressively on the back end, coating the palate with ripe tannins. The 2006 is at once finer and more powerful, with more noble tannins, but this is more opulent.
