Maquis Gran Reserva Carménère 2015

20.90

Freshness and body expression

Maquis Gran Reserva Carménère stands out from the rest of the Chilean Carménère because it shows a more floral and fresh side of this variety. It is a very tasty wine.

Tasting notes

On the nose it reveals intense black fruit aromas with some hints of salvia and romero. On the palate it feels very refreshing and smooth with a long and persistent aftertaste.

____________

Wine Enthusiast, 90 Points: Olive and spiced plum aromas are stout, but with zest and snap. A full, tightly wound palate is balanced and lively, tastes of rich black fruits, and a touch of hoisin sauce and soy sauce. A broadly textured finish is savory tasting until the final note.

Tasting Panel, 90 Points: Smooth and succulent with notes of crisp dark plum and subtle herbs. With medium weight and considerable spice, it’s long and balanced at an attractive price point.

Amsterdam Tasting Panel: More round – more integrated flavours – more elegant and still very typical Carménère missing maybe a bit of the coffee and vegetal notes thanks to the addition of cabernet sauvignon / petit Verdot.  – in the end it is tasty and has high, but not rough tannins that would pair well with a variety of rich foods and cheeses.

Description

Gran Reserva Carménère from Colchagua Valley, Rapel Valley, Chile

Gran Reserva Carménère Blend: 85% Carménère, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot

Winemaker

The Hurtado family has owned the Viña Maquis vineyard for more than a century, but it wasn’t until almost 20 years ago that the family decided to make their own wine out of the terrific grapes in their own backyard. They built a state-of-the-art gravity flow winery and set out to make the Maquis winery one of the great properties in all of South America.

Located in Colchagua Valley, the winery’s focus is on distinctive single-vineyard, estate wines, as well as producing “balanced” wines that are not over-ripe (resulting in excessively high alcohol) but also not exhibiting any of the “green” character that sometimes plagues wines picked from grapes that have not fully matured. The Maquis main vineyard is essentially an island: it is deeply influenced by the Tinguiririca River on one side and the Chimbarongo Creek on the other. These two large waterways once brought alluvial sediment from the Andes and today act as pathways for cool coastal breezes that help moderate the warm Colchagua summers, contributing to the intensity, character, fruitiness and mineral elements of the Maquis wines. Maquis is fortunate to have such a privileged location and perfect to make wine like this Gran Reserva Carménère.

Since 2005, Maquis has worked with consulting winemaker Xavier Choné, whose specialty is vineyard evaluation. By paying close attention to soil conditions, the spacing of the vines, and the timing of the harvest, Choné’s style of winemaking produces sophisticated wines with concentrated flavors that truly represent the region’s terroir. At Maquis, vineyards are strategically planted and farmed with minimal irrigation with Carmenere in the warmest spots and Cabernet Franc in the cooler areas. Choné works with wineries around the world, including Opus One, Joseph Phelps, and Dominus Estate. Maquis is the only South American winery with which Choné is affiliated.

In addition to Choné, Maquis utilizes the expert blending talents of Bordeaux’s Eric Boissenot. Several times per year Ricardo will travel from Bordeaux to work on the final blends of the Maquis wines with the Eric, who also works with four of Bordeaux’s first growths. He and his late father Jacques were named “Blenders of the Decade” by Decanter magazine.

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.

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.
