This is an Exceptional Bordeaux variety blend – a nod to Bouchon’s original St Emilion roots. Elegant & terroir driven wine that offers the chance for the Bouchon family to interweave French winemaking traditions with the love they have found for the Maule valley. It’s a fruity and juicy wine that goes well with meat sauce pastas and paellas.

This blend of 50% carménère with equal parts of carignan and país comes from the granitic soils at the Mingre Vineyard, 45 kilometers from the sea in the Maule Valley’s dry-farmed secano interior. It’s fresh and fruity, simple, and very easy to drink. It has claws that latch on to the palate, but the sensation is light and very fresh.
