In 1984, Bruno Prats and Paul Pontallier, two well-known agronomists and oenologists from Bordeaux, France, decided to look for high quality land in Chile to plant a totally new vineyard. Their third associate was their Chilean friend agronomist and oenologist Felipe de Solminihac, whose origins are actually French. In 1990, they acquired 43 acres in the 'Quebrada de Macul' - historically the heart of the Maipo Valley vineyard - at the foot of the Andes Mountain, near Santiago city. They planted typical Bordeaux varieties, grown in Chile for many years already. The construction of the cellar was completed in 1993. In January 2003, Ghislain de Montgolfier, an agronomist and oenologist from the Champagne region in France, and an old friend of the founders, became the fourth associate, or the 'fourth musketeer' as he says, evoking the novel of Alexander Dumas. – Description from dvoristanac

    Snoothrank:

    Nose of smoke and jam. Palate of prunes and spicy notes with dark chocolate undertones. Lots of complexity with a long finish. Wife says it is reminiscent of a stinky cheese!? Read More

  • Vina Aquitania Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

    Snoothrank:

    The classic Macul Cabernet. Macul is a region in Chile's Maipo Valley, up in the foothills of the Andes. Cassis, red pepper and dried herbs. This is a wonderfulll elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. A nice change of pace from many of the Chilean Cabernet's which are far from elegant and go for largess over style. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Este cabernet me encantó sobre todo por sus notas animales. Faltó un poco de fortaleza en boca, pero en términos generales se puede disfrutar con un buen asado! Read More
