Winemaker Notes

This rich and velvety wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère and Petit Verdot.

Like the bull on the label and Salvador Amenábar, the talented young artist who painted him, Calcu wines are exuberant and full of possibility, with each vintage revealing a different aspect of the Colchagua Valley's dynamic character.

Critical Acclaim

RP 87
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva contains 10% Carmenere and 10% Petit Verdot in its makeup. It displays aromas of spice box, incense, damp earth, and black currant. This sets the stage for a medium-bodied, firm, spicy wine that in nicely proportioned and lengthy. This very good value will also deliver enjoyment over the next 3-4 years.

Calcu, , South America
Calcu
In the local Mapuche language, Calcu means "healing doctor" or "magician." And indeed, winemakers Rodrigo Romero and Ricardo Rivadeniera have created a magical "Super Chilean" blend that expresses the diversity of the Colchagua Valley.

Like the bull on label, Calcu is exuberant and unrestrained. Rather than being tied to a particular terroir, Calcu is made with grapes harvested from throughout the Colchagua Valley, revealing different aspects of the valley’s dynamic character with every vintage.

Champagne

View all wine

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
