An alliance of ripe fruit and subtle floral aromas give way to caramel, licorice and graphite notes. On the palate, flavours of raspberry, blackcurrant, and black cherry are framed by a broad structure of fine, velvety tannins. This tannic presence is carried with flavors of vanilla and cocoa, leaving a silky and mineral finish. Precise and elegant, Almaviva 2015 is a great combination of complexity and harmony, a superb vintage to celebrate Almaviva’s twentieth anniversary.
In 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild S.A., and Don Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle, Chairman of Viña Concha y Toro S.A., sealed a partnership agreement with a view to create an exceptional Franco-Chilean premium wine called Almaviva. Produced under the joint technical supervision of both partners, the first vintage achieved immediate international success upon its launch in 1998. Located in the Maipo Valley, in Chile’s central zone, Puente Alto was recognized over twenty years ago as offering ideal conditions for growing the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, along with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Carménère (the French brought these grape varieties into Chile in the mid-19th century, and the Carménère became Chile’s signature grape variety until now) – Almaviva is the result of a felicitous encounter between two cultures. Chile offers its terrior, while France contributes its wine-making savoir-faire and traditions. It is here that 85 hectares have been reserved exclusively for Almaviva.
