Calcu Futa Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

(2 customer reviews)

48.60

Intensity and delicacy – Icon wine

Futa means “big and magnificent” in Mapudungún, the indigenous Chilean Mapuche language. This wine brings together the determination of the Hurtado family and the talent of Eric Boissenot to achieve a World class Cabernet Sauvignon, with a style marked by its freshness and elegance.

Tasting notes

Intense aromas but not overwhelming, marked by fresh fruits like Blackcherry and some hints of Raspberry. Also it’s possible to find notes of blackcurrants, cacao nibs and even dry coconut. Tertiary aromas have started to develop due to the age of the wine, creating a complex profile with subtle touch of leather and tobacco leaves in the nose. The palate stands out for its structure and depth due to the elegant softness of its tannins. Futa is a very concentrated wine, fresh and elegant with a long and persistent finish.

You can drink it now (2021) but we are sure this wine has many more great years ahead of it where more tertiary aromas would develop. We recommend you to pair Futa Cabernet Sauvignon with red meat, cheese plate or with a nice mushroom risotto.
Some decanting can help enhance the fruit aromas if you open it 30 to 40min before drinking it.

Description

Calcu Futa Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Futa Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 represents the most elegant expression of CALCU. The grapes were harvested from the finest vineyards owned by the Hurtado family on their Marchigue Estate. The winemaking process preserved the full glory and majesty of the Terroir.

Winery Calcu

Calcu, which means “healing doctor” in the local Mapuche language. Calcu emphasizes the diversity of Chile’s Colchagua Valley. The fruit is always a combination of the family’s estate fruit, and locally sourced, sustainable grapes from quality Colchagua growers. Like the playful bull on the label by the talented young Chilean artist who painted him. Calcu produces exuberant wines that are fresh and fruity, but also elegant.

  1. Tijmen (verified owner)

    This is a great wine, it has developed well over the years and still has lots of concentration of fruit flavours and the tannin structure to improve even more so.
    Black fruit dominant with very noticeable oak usage and tertiary aromas starting to develop.
    Incredibly well to drink now (2020) but definitely has many more great years ahead of it where more tertiary aromas would play a bigger part in the flavor profile.

  2. Rosanne

    Monday morning, not my favorite… Meetings to host, deadlines to catch, employees to manage; that’s how my work week usually starts. You can get that bit of extra energy and power you need from a couple of double espressos – or you go with something twice as powerful: this 2009 cabernet sauvignon by @calcuwines.

    BOOM! This intense full-bodied wine does not only have smooth aromas of red and black fruit (a perfect way to ease you into the hard work), it also has notes of fresh spices like eucalyptus, nutmeg and vanilla (making sure you’ll stay sharp and energized). Personally,
    I especially like the hints of tobacco (you can imagine yourself laying back in your chair, feet on the table, smoking a big cigar) and of leather (in case you need to whip insubordinate subjects into obedience).

    So if you feel (or want to feel) like a boss, you’d better skip the coffee and go straight to this brawny bottle – exclusively available at @mhdl.wine

Motto ~ Love what you do and inspire people ~

I possess a strong entrepreneurial mindset and am always ready for new challenges. I have a Master’s Degree in Transport, Logistics and International Trade; knowledge I am determined to put into practice by spreading my passion for wine. Speak three languages fluently: French, Spanish, and English, and currently learning Dutch.

I was raised in the Loire Valley, a beautiful wine region, and had the luck to be named after one of France’s most interesting wines: Margaux! I was fortunate to grow up with Sancerre and Cabernet Franc vines in my backyard, and have since explored and tasted my way through all of France’s great wine regions.
When I started traveling the world, I realised that there is so much more to wine – the grapes, the history, the people, the terroirs. How amazing would it be to share this awareness and experience with others?
That is why I have decided to start the adventure here and be part of MH&DL Exclusive Terroirs.

Motto ~ Stap voor stap en altijd bedachtzaam ~

Mijn persoonlijke ervaringen zijn nauw verbonden met de subregio Terroir de Pirque van de beroemde Maipo-vallei. Ik ben opgegroeid tussen de druivenplantages Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon en Torontel. Ik ben een Chileense ondernemer met meer dan 25 jaar ervaring in internationaal zakendoen. Ontwikkelen van verkoopkanalen op de internationale markt naar verschillende Chileense wijnhuizen. Naast sterke allianties met wijnmakerijen uit de oude wereld

Door de jaren heen heb ik over de hele wereld een sterk netwerk opgebouwd in de wijnindustrie. Mijn werk- en levenservaringen zijn een grote aanwinst voor het avontuur van MH&DL. Ik help bij het opstellen van de zakelijke doelstellingen en limieten. Ik ben een wijnverteller, woon een van mijn proeverijen bij en je wordt vervoerd door de magie van de wijnkunst.

Motto ~ Hou van wat je doet en inspireer mensen ~

Ik ben ondernemend en altijd klaar voor nieuwe uitdagingen. Ik heb een master in transport, logistiek en internationale handel – kennis die maar al te graag in praktijk wil brengen door mijn passie voor wijn met de wereld te delen. Ik spreek drie talen vloeiend: Frans, Spaans en Engels, en ik leer momenteel Nederlands.

Ik ben opgegroeid in de Loire, een prachtige wijnregio, en ik bof naar een van de bijzonderste Franse wijnen te zijn vernoemd: Margaux! Ik had het geluk op te groeien met Sancerre- en Cabernet Franc-wijnstokken in de achtertuin, en ik heb sindsdien alle grote wijngebieden van Frankrijk verkend en geproefd.Toen ik de wereld rondreisde, realiseerde ik me dat er zoveel meer achter wijn schuilt: de druiven, de geschiedenis, de mensen, de terroirs. Hoe geweldig zou het zijn als ik al dit bewustzijn en deze ervaring met anderen kan delen?
Daarom heb ik besloten om hier het avontuur te beginnen en deel uit te maken van MH&DL Exclusive Terroirs.
