Maquis Viola 2009
The Maquis Carménère par Excellence
Viola is the product of identifying the best vineyards on the Maquis estate, and then choosing the individual rows where the vines produce particularly tiny grapes and especially concentrated fruit that results in wine with silky tannins and great depth. The skills of the viticulturist, Xavier Choné, and the blenders, Jacques and Eric Boissenot, are clearly apparent in this balanced and elegant blend. The spices, black fruit and smooth texture of the Carmenere, the principal component of the blend, are complemented by the extraordinary finesse and length on the palate of the Cabernet Franc.
Viola is a Carmenère-based cuvée with Cabernet Franc and a little Cabernet Sauvignon and is very true to its main varietal, showing soft, green, herbal flavours, a touch of new oak and the silky, refined tannins that are typical of the Maquis style
