Marques de Casa Concha Chile 2005
#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

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.
Rich, elegant and has great balance! Delicious and had only been open half an hour! - WS Grand Tour 2011

old, obscure scoring method: (2/2.5/3/3) [5/9/13=27+/-5 out of 30?]
Excellent. Strong and complex.
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).

External Reviews for Marques de Casa Concha Chile
After less than persuasive performances in two potentially great years, 1989 and 1990, Mouton-Rothschild appears to have settled down, producing fine efforts in recent vintages, culminating with the enormously promising, unquestionably profound 1995. The 1994 appears to be the finest Mouton-Rothschild made following the 1986 and before the 1995rsquo;s conception. The wine exhibits a dense, saturated purple color, followed by a classic Mouton nose of sweet black fruits intermingled with smoke, pain grilleacute;, spice and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, with outstanding concentration, a layered feel, plenty of tannin, and rich, concentrated fruit, this wine is similar to the fine 1988. Anticipated maturity: 2005ndash;2025.
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.
Dark purple black in color. Complex aromas of mineral licorice lead pencil and blackberry follow through to a full body with ultrafine tannins and a caressing pretty finish. Has a lovely texture. Shows elegance and refinement. Best after 2012. -JS Wine Spectator.
Ageless, yet balanced. Black color. Mint, mineral, berry and cherry. Full-bodied, chewy and tight. Long, long finish. A great, great wine. Drink now.
Monster nose. Black, powerful and ultra-serious. Exotic coconut to start. Stacked with incredibly dense ripe fruit. huge, sweet, yet tannic. From 2020.
(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.
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.
