2001 Almaviva "Almaviva" Bordeaux Blend Maipo Valley

SKU #1006688 94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A vintage that was generally lauded in Chile, with small berries giving concentration. Dark chocolate and olive paste flavours give a rich, dense impression through the mid-palate, softening to hazelnut edging and autumnal fruits. Still firm tannins - this has time to develop. (JA) Inner quote mark (6/2017)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark There's lots here still, with mature aromas of coffee and sage giving way to a wide range of roasted fig, tobacco, dark olive, tar and charred mesquite notes. A brawny edge defines the still-muscular finish. Not the purest vintage, but with plenty of complexity and character. (JM) Inner quote mark (4/2011)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very fresh still with dark fruits, iron and hints of cedar on the nose. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a delicately fruity finish. Very fine indeed. Inner quote mark (9/2018)

92 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2001 Almaviva remains youthful. Its color is dark ruby/purple and the bouquet features pain grille, violets, leather, coffee, blackberry and black currant. On the palate, the wine is balanced and elegantly styled with excellent depth and concentration. The ripe tannins are well concealed and will support another 3-5 years of cellaring. It should drink well through 2030. There is no doubt that Almaviva merits its status as one of Chile’s icon wines. (JM) Inner quote mark (6/2007)
