Rothschild & Concha Y Toro

Case Format: 6x75cl

Born the lovechild of Viña Concha y Toro and Baron Philippe de Rothschild, the Chilean powerhouse Almaviva, combines both the Rothschild spirit for creating spectacular clarets with the Maipo Valley’s sublime terroir. These wines truly are a must-have for lovers of claret looking for something slightly different.

Their 2017 was declared “wine of the decade” by James Suckling who awarded it a coveted 100 Points, whilst the 2018 received the praise of “one of Chile’s greatest reds” from Tim Atkin, who backed this up with a 98 Point score.

This full-bodied wine, comprises a Cabernet-based blend that is brimming with blackcurrant, spiced tobacco and herbal notes.

CRITIC REVIEWS

James Suckling

A fresh and discreet Almaviva with subtle pencil shavings and cigar box to the cassis and hints of chili chocolate and peppermint. Nuanced and subtle on the nose. This is medium-bodied and subtle on the palate with silky tannins in the seamless finish. Very long. 71% cabernet sauvignon, 22% carmenere, 5% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot. Drinkable now, but it will take its time to deliver complexity.

Jane Anson

A stunning example of Almaviva, shot through with the generosity and restrained spice of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmanère in Puente Alto. Coffee bean, liquorice and cocoa set the tone on the opening beats, showing the restrained glamour that the partnership of SA Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Concha Y Toro do so well. Plenty of fruit here, majoring on blackcurrant and damson, with just enough brambled blackberry buds and autumn hedgerow adding a welcome note of both bitterness and fragrance, cutting through the sleek ripeness of the palate, excellent reflection of the balanced weather in the 2021 vintage, with no challenging heat spikes. Winemaker Michel Friou. 75% new oak.
