J. Bouchon gives us a blend portrayed by characteristic grapes from the Bordeaux region in France and the Maule Valley in Chile. Thanks to Canto, Julio Bouchon and his children link the French winemaking tradition that they carry in their veins, with the deep affection for their vineyards in the Maule Valley.
Canto Norte is an unoaked mix of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc which pays homage to the red blends of Bordeaux, the starting point of the Bouchon family winemaking traditions. Canto Norte is a balanced, medium-bodied wine with strong fruit notes and a long satisfying finish.
89 points, Vinous, February 2017 Deep ruby. Ripe blackberry, licorice, succulent herbs and cracked pepper on the nose. Plump dark berry and mint flavors are lifted by juicy acidity. Concentrated as well as energetic, finishing with good length, repeating spiciness and round, even tannins that come in late.
