Freshness and body expression

High quality line of wines produced from the youngest blocks at the Calcu vineyard in Marchigüe. Calcu Special Reserve Carmenere stands out for its intense red fruits, good body and long aftertaste.

Tasting notes

Deep, bright and dark red colour. Floral and black spices in a back of fresh red fruit. Full bodied in the palate, elegant and soft tannic structure. Fresh and fruity, with a long finish.

____________

James Suckling, 90 Points: “A tight and fresh wine with linear fruit and tannins that give this wine focus and balance. Very Good” 

Amsterdam Tasting Panel:  This Carménère is great. Good fruit aromas with the power we expect from Carménère – a very pleasant wine. The bold fruit has a nice balance with the oak used in fermentation and ageing- very typical smell of coffee for Carménère – a pure expression of this grape varietal.

Description

Calcu Reserva Carménère 2013

Calcu Reserva Especial Carménère comes from the hills of Marchigue. Here the breeze from the Pacific Ocean moderates the climate in the growing season. It provides broad diurnal temperatures which results in concentrated and fresh flavors in the grapes. The Reserva Especial is a full-bodied, fruity wine with elegant balance and present, but smooth tannins. 80% of the wine has aged on second and third use French oak barrels and the rest, 20%, on stainless steel tanks to ensure that the pure character of the grape is experienced.

We recommend to open this wine at least 30 minutes before enjoying it and to pair with a steak, stew, roasted vegetables or vegetarian food (try a recipe from Ottolenghi’s Flavour)

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. Calcu produces exuberant wines that are fresh and fruity, but also elegant.

1 review for Calcu Reserva Especial Carménère 2013

  1. Federico L

    A beautiful example of what a Carménère from Chile should be like. Deep in colour, delicious aromas
    of raspberry, blackberries, eucalyptus, liquorice, coffee, chocolate, leather and earth. It is well
    structured wine, with firm but soft tannins, a pleasant balance between alcohol and acidity, reinforced
    by a good concentration of fruit. Full in body and an enjoyable finish. Also, price-quality wise, you get
    more than you pay for!

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.

Authentic qualities: Enthusiasm, Dedication and Passion

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.

Authentieke kwaliteiten: visionair – gewetensvol

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.
