For Cabernet Sauvignon, the best terroirs are without a doubt at the foot of the Andes. Alto Maipo is definitely one of the best among these terroirs, so it's no surprise that the grapes for this wine come from the Carmen vineyards in this beautiful part of Chile. The secret of this terroir lies in the high temperatures during the day and the strong cooling in the late afternoon and night, when the wind comes from the mountains. The high location ensures further cooling at night, resulting in grapes with a particularly great taste. Moreover, the yields are low by Chilean standards, around 55 hectoliters per hectare. That is about the same as in the top vineyards of Bordeaux . Because the grapes are perfectly ripe and healthy, the fermentation period can last as much as six weeks. This results in a wine with a wonderful depth and lots of fruit, which then matures for another ten months in French oak barriques. The result is a special glass of Cabernet Sauvignon of great quality.

The Carmen Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva is made from the best grapes and the best vineyards, and you can taste it in its complex character. It is wonderfully fresh and peppery, smooth and accessible, tough and sultry, with a delicious little pepper, soft and intense at the same time. Perfect with steak with pepper sauce, confit de canard, hard aged cheeses.
