Our View:

A Bordeaux inspired blend made in homage to the founder of the winery. This is the flagship wine from the Don Maximiano Estate, made from a careful selection of the finest fruit from old vineyards. An outstanding wine with complexity, beautifully ripe fruit, fine grained tannin and great concentration.

Quite simply, a superb wine.

The Wine:

The Errazuriz Estate was founded in 1870 when Don Maximiano Errazuriz planted his first vineyards at Panquehue in the Aconcagua Valley - 100km North of the capital. Recognising that this valley, with its cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers and moist Pacific Ocean breezes, was ideal for growing grapes, Don Maximiano sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world class vineyard.

This was a warm season with very scant precipitation that generated serious drought conditions in the valley. The yields were normal, however, and produced grapes with good concentration and well-ripened tannins, primarily thanks to a subterranean supply of water.


Tasting Note:

With an intense purple colour with violet highlights, the 2020 vintage of Don Maximiano Founder’s Reserve captivates with aromas of fresh red and black fruit such as black cherry, blueberries and blackberries, accompanied by notes of dark chocolate, with spicy white pepper-type notes and some clove. Aligned with what is perceived on the nose, the palate recalls ripe cherries and blueberries, followed by chocolate and some rosemary. Of a wide and deep entrance, it’s juicy and with fine-grained tannins that give great structure and persistence on the palate.
