Almaviva Roth­schild Puente Alto 2016

Perfect wine does not exist, or at least. . . This true Rothschild icon gets consistently high ratings from the international wine press, for all years. Almaviva proves that exists perfection. "Far more satisfying than plenty of Bordeaux" Jancis Robinson writes about this cult project of the family (Mouton) Rothschild and the iconic Concha y Toro. Open, fragrant, deep purple almost sweet fruit, violets, flowers, vanilla, chocolate, complexity and sophistication. Typical Chilean eucalyptus. On the palate velvety but with backbone. Soft tannins and cocoa powder. Sultry ripe fruit surrounds your taste buds, soft and creamy with laurel, chocolate, tobacco and licorice. Complex and saved.

At the supermarket.
A really tasteful wine of red ruby colour. Deep scent, like coffee. Not the sweetest wine, but kind of.

O melhor de duas culturas e 95 Pontos Robert Parker

Elaborado a partir de uma mistura de três variedades clássicas de Bordeaux - onde predomina o Cabernet Sauvignon - Almaviva é o resultado do afortunado encontro entre duas culturas. O Chile oferece sua terra, seu clima, e seus vinhedos, enquanto a França contribui com os conhecimentos técnicos de vinificação e suas tradições.
O resultado é um vinho de elegância excepcional e complexidade. Seu lançamento foi um enorme impulso para o desenvolvimento dos vinhos chilenos nos mercados internacionais
ALCOHOL: 14,00%Vol.

Baron Rothschild Almaviva 2015
This rather mild wine pairs perfectly with roast lamb I've already tried it. I love to sharing this wine with friends.
As nearly all of them this one shows also a cherry colour. Slight smell of tea in this Maipo Valley. The texture of this wine from Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) was oily.

I've purchased on this website.
Deep red cherry colour. Tobacco aromas. A red fairly astringent.
