Cousiño-macul

The Cousiño Macul winery is today governed by the sixth generation, direct descendents of its founder, Matías Cousiño. Like their predecessors, these Cousiños are making their mark in history by pushing quality to the limit and thereby securing Cousiño Macul's position as Chile's leading family-owned winery. As said by Arturo Cousiño, Chairman of the Board of Directors, "Our objective is to produce world-class wines that are authentically Chilean, wines that have true varietal character and express the unique terroir of the Maipo Valley ".

  • Cousino Macul Isidora Pinot Gris 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Nice summer wine. The taste is close to a Mediterranean rosé. Good in its price range Read More

    Wine review by Echenike


  • Chardonnay is a pain in my ass. Really it is. I’ve mentioned it before, and it’s worth mentioning again. When I lead staff tastings in retail the Chardonnay days were the only one we all feared. Why you ask? Too many wines smell of old tuna fish cans and taste even worse. OK, that is a slight exaggeration, but the truth is that there is more cra... Read More

  • Cousino-Macul Chardonnay Antiguas Reserva Maipo Valley 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Bright and floral on the nose with a ginger and cinnamon edge to the very ripe core of pineapple laden fruit. Creamy at first, with an initial wave of very ripe pineapple and mango fruit framed with gently toasted spice and vanilla. This gains focus in the mouth, though it remains with very ripe fruit flavors if lively and fresh feeling on the p... Read More

  • Cousino Macul Cab Sauv 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Interesting Maipo white made from Sauvignon Gris which is a clonal mutation of sauvignon blanc. More of the white stone fruit (not too ripe peach and pear) versus grapefruit or lemon almost Riesling like. Nice acidity, a bit of perfume similar to a roussanne but lighter. Read More

  • Chardonnay, oh Chardonnay. You really don’t have to be any better, do you? Back in the day when I lead staff tastings in retail we had Chardonnay tastings some four times a year. It’s the only time people would call in sick in order to opt out of staff tastings. The wines, at all price points, vary so much in style and quality that you were sure... Read More

  • Cousiño-Macul Riesling Doña Isidora 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Butter, vanilla, fennel seed, toasty oak spice, baked apple and lemon curd all come together on this rather classic nose. Fairly restrained on entry, this shows some butteriness on the palate along with simple if clear flavors of apple and lots of mango. The toasty spice kicks in on the backend with a strong vein of vanilla driving the moderatel... Read More

    Wine review by MrRiesling


  • With the summer's heat on full blast you might be asking why I’m reviewing red wines instead of something cool, crisp and refreshing, and Cabernets to boot! Well, the truth is that plenty of folks out there enjoy a nice Cabernet this time of year. Think about it, what could be better with a steak off the grill, or better yet a lamb top round, or...

  • Cousiño-Macul Sauvignon Blanc 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A fair amount of toasty oak greets the nose along with lots of dried herb character and black currant fruit. This is smooth and fairly opulent in the mouth with a nice base of rather well managed tannins and good acidity that supports lots of plummy and black currant fruit. This turns a bit extracted and bitter on the long finish. This has a cer... Read More

  • Their wine cellar, the oldest, or one of the oldest in Chile, is beautiful and we had such a wonderful time. They work hard to give you a personalized feel and everything we tasted was wonderful. We brought back several bottles to enjoy and remember our trip.
