2021 Almaviva EPU
The third international release of Almaviva's second wine will be the 2021 Epu. This Almaviva is also sold through the Bordeaux négoce where we can buy happiness directly because the price/quality of the boar is excellent. DE EPU is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Carmenere, 5% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc which matures for one year in used barriques. The 2021 is intense and fruity, spicy and spicy, with a creamy texture and fine-grained tannins. It is a second wine, but the Epu is perhaps even a bit more classic and is more Bordeaux and its big brother the Almaviva is more Chilean. Decant the EPU in its younger years. The wine received 93/100 points from Tim Atkin and 94/100 from Suckling
"Far more satisfying than plenty of Bordeaux " writes Jancis Robinson about this cult project by the (Mouton) Rothschild family and the iconic Concha y Toro.

The name Almaviva, although it has a Spanish sonority, belongs to classic French literature: Count Almaviva is the hero of The Marriage of Figaro, the famous play by Beaumarchais (1732-1799), later turned into an opera by Mozart's genius . The label, meanwhile, pays homage to Chile's ancestral history, with 3 reproductions of a stylized design, symbolizing the vision of the earth and cosmos in the Mapuche civilization. The label bears the name Almaviva in Beaumarchais' own handwriting. Two great traditions thus join forces.
The Château concept was introduced to France in the 19th century as a way of honoring the creative mastery of Bordeaux winegrowers. Almaviva was the first wine in Chile to be created according to this French Château concept, taking into account an exceptional terroir, a unique bodega and a technical team dedicated exclusively to the production of wines of unparalleled quality and excellence.
