This entrancing red blend is made from 50% Syrah and 50% Carmenere. Both grapes contribute significantly to this medium ruby-coloured wine. Expect aromatic red and black cherry fruit on the nose (from the Syrah) with some darker fruits, lifting acidity and some coating tannin (from the Carmenere). All in all, this is an especially fruity blend with decent length and high drinkability!

The Bouchon Family wines story begins with the dream of an adventurous young Frenchman almost a century and a half ago. At the age of 22, Emile Bouchon left his home – a community of small winemakers in Arveyres near Bordeaux, France – and boarded a boat headed for Chile. It was the spring of 1887. Emile had been hired as a consulting winemaker by the Vigouroux Vineyard, which at that time was quite well-known in Chile.

After many years of hard work, he came into possession of the Angostura Vineyard, where he began to grow the typical French varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc, transforming it into one of the most celebrated vineyards of its time.

Today the 4th Generation of the Bouchon family winery is led by Julio Bouchon Jr., who took over the business in the 1990’s. His siblings Juan and María came on board ten years later, and now all three run this well-known Chilean family winery together.
