Almaviva 2017 has just been declared James Suckling’s WINE OF THE DECADE!

Almaviva is a joint venture between Château Mouton Rothschild and Chile’s Concha y Toro which began in 1998. This is a single estate wine made by native Frenchman, and Chilean veteran, Michel Friou. The blend is Bordeaux with a Chilean twist (the 2017 is 65% cabernet sauvignon and 23% Carménère (Chile’s emblematic grape). The wine gets 19 months in new French oak.

The Almaviva vineyard is in Puente Alto (with the now famous Maipo Valley. It is very close to the Andes, whose influence cools the vineyards. The Almaviva vineyard is at 650 metres, in the highest part of the Valley. Maipo Valley is often called the “Bordeaux of South America”, and it has proved ideal for producing great Cabernet Sauvignon. The 60-hectare estate is blessed with long, sunny days and gentle breezes, flowing down from the Andes.

James Suckling gave this wine a perfect 100 score and says drink from 2025.

Encompassed in their repertoire are the world's highest scoring Carmenere's - Carmin de Peumo and Terrunyo as well as one of the world's most 'distinctive' Cabernet Sauvignon's - Don Melchor. Chile's first and original Icon wine, James Suckling named Don Melchor the "Classic Cabernet of Chile".
