Pradikatswein Wein Weisswein Rar Wei Burgunder Top 2002
Made from a blend of classic Bordeaux varieties, in which Cabernet Sauvignon predominates, Almaviva is the result of a felicitous encounter between two cultures. Chile offers its soil, its climate and its vineyards, while France contributes its winemaking savoir-faire and traditions. The result is an exceptionally elegant and complex wine. Its launch was a major milestone in the development of Chilean wines, both in Chile itself and in the international market.

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 brought me back to reds after years of drinking vodka...1999. I still love vodka, but Very, very consistant. Opened the 02 this Saturday night with my "Friends of The Vine" group for a Merlot tasting...it was a hit. Highly recommend anything from CyT, esp Marq CC

Complex aromas of tobacco cedar berry and currants. Full-bodied with a solid core of fruit and ripe tannins. Wine Spectator.
...Tight nose hints at currant and smoky oak. Highly concentrated densely packed and built to age. As young as it is it also shows a lovely velvety texture rare for this vintage. Finishes with terrific breadth subtle minerality and noble tannins. I ve been a fan of this wine since the outset. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Violet red in the glass; flavors of herbs, berries and pepper are apparent in the palate. The wine is soft, medium-bodied, rounded and harmonic with a persistent finish. Very smooth, this affordable sipper provides forward fruit and easy drinkability, while a touch of Carménère offers structure and longevity.
A plush Merlot, with a nice core of plum flavors and a good herbal edge. Finishes on a slightly sweet note. Drink now through 1999.
