Maquis Franco 2008


Chile’s top Cabernet Franc – Icon wine

The Maquis estate has unique conditions thanks to the high clay content, well drained soils and the effect of the two surrounding rivers on the temperatures that allow Cabernet Franc grapes to reach amazing concentration and elegance.
Maquis Franco represents the culmination of painstaking efforts by four generations of the Hurtado family to craft a truly exceptional wine. This majestic Cabernet Franc is outstanding for its elegance and persistence on the palate.

Tasting notes

Maquis Franco presents a dark cherry red colour. The nose reveals a high complexity with red fruits such as blackberries and blueberries with some hints of lavender and a touch of regaliz. The palate is well structured, with excellent volume. It’s fresh with elegant tannins and a long and persistent finish.

Maquis Franco 2008

Cabernet Franc seems to be the grape that has best adapted over time to the Viña Maquis terroir. As early as in the 1930s and 40s Cabernet Franc was always the main component of the winery’s finest wines. The grapes for Maquis Franco are harvested from the heart of the property’s best blocks of Cabernet Franc and carefully selected to make very limited-production wines. At every vintage, Maquis Franco comes from the same massal selection of ungrafted Cabernet Franc blocks.

Maquis Franco has been named “Chile’s top Cabernet Franc” for the past 5 years. Awards

Maquis Franco 2008 has an intense, velvety red colour. This wine boasts aromas of great intensity and complexity, with fresh red fruit over a delicate floral background. Balanced mouth with an impressive volume and tannic structure. Its finish is subtle and persistent.

Winery Maquis

In 1916, the Hurtado family bought Maquis with the wish to develop a fine wine business. Today, Maquis produce and creates some of the best wines of the Colchagua Valley and the first Icon Cabernet Franc from Chile.

Winemaking commitments:

  • 100% Single-vineyard wines, grown solely on the Maquis Estate.
  • Artisanal methods preserved in the winemaking process with a sustainable approach.
  • Balanced wines, in the pursuit of natural freshness and moderate alcohol level.
  • Characteristic aromas that combine fresh fruit, floral and herbal notes with well integrated oak.
  • Wine aged in 225L and 400L French oak barrels for 12 to 36 months depending on the wine and vintage.
  • Early blending. Our master blender Eric Boissenot decides on the blends two or three months after harvest so that each blend has plenty of time to develop and gain complexity while ageing in barrels.

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 ~ 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.
