One can imagine that the Count of Almaviva, the flamboyant personality imagined by Beaumarchais in his Marriage of Figaro, would have appreciated this sumptuous cru named after him which bears his name, conceived and created in partnership by Philippine de Rothschild and Chile’s leading wine company, Concha y Toro. The latter brought to the table a union that was celebrated in the mid-nineties, forty hectares of vineyards in the of vineyards in the Maipo Valley, certainly one of the most renowned in the production of great wines. Other vineyards have been added since then, but always in the strict respect of a classic Bordeaux blend, where only where only the Carmenère replaces the Merlot. For the Bordeaux influence is undeniably present in this rich, deep, luxurious and fruity wine, but with a very elegant balance and a velvety tannin grain: the estate’s French winemaker, Michel Friou, established for more than twenty years in Chile, after years spent in Australia and France.
