Wine Description

The Grande Réserve - Los Vascos is the product of selection from the vineyard’s finest plots of land. “Grande Réserve” is produced traditionally and aged in French oak barrels, it is characterized by its persistent and complex bouquet. 2006 was a late vintage in Chile in spite of an extremely hot summer but it was followed by cool temperatures during the harvest which permitted a good staggering during the picking for optimum maturities without an explosion of alcoholic degrees.

The colour is intense ruby with fine brilliance and orange nuances. The nose explodes with fruit : black cherry and blackcurrant (Cabernet), strawberry (Malbec), raspberry (Syrah), plum light mint and black pepper (Carmenère). The oak doesn’t overpower the fruit contributes delicious aromas of tobacco, cinnamon, and crème brûlée (vanilla, caramel and chocolate). The rich hand creamy taste is fresh and very intense, well structured and finishes with a fruit intensity of raspberries and cherries accompanied by a touch of liquorice and walnut skin. It is very dynamic and still very young. This juicy and luscious wine is delicious to taste now but the tannins still need to mature for a while before it becomes ideal for drinking (2009). On the lines of the 2005, it is currently superb. A wine deliciously Chilean! (hide)

    Nice focus to the juicy blackberry and brier flavors here, with toast and mocha notes, and a long dark fleshy finish.
