Winemaker Notes

The 2018 Hussonet shows an intense red color with violet highlights. The nose of this red wine offers notes of mint and chocolate with typical spicy aromas of laurel which distinguish the territory where the grapes are grown. The palate is both concentrated and smooth, with silky and persistent tannins.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling
Aromas of fresh blackcurrants and a peppery edge here, making for a striking combination with plenty of fragrance. The palate has a very juicy, supple and fleshy feel with long, fresh, red-berry and cherry flavors.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Voluptuously spiced, featuring concentrated plum tart, cherry pastry and raspberry flavors that are well-knit. Creamy midpalate, with chocolate notes and minty hints on the finish. Drink now through 2024.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Wiry berry aromas include herbal notes and a hint of animal on what amounts to a fresh, welcoming nose. A tight and direct palate is well balanced, while this everyday Cabernet arrives at excellence via ripe blackberry and cassis flavors that are lightly oaked and warm on the finish.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Haras de Pirque Hussonet Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon drinks smoothly and pleasantly. TASTING NOTES: This wine sails on the palate with flavors of black fruit and oak. Toss a ribeye on the grill and enjoy them together. (Tasted: September 7, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Haras de Pirque Winery Video

Haras de Pirque is located in the easternmost part of the Maipo Province, at the foothills of central Chile’s mountain range. This area enjoys extremely favorable climatic and geographic conditions and is well-known for producing high quality wines. The vineyards that surround the estate are bordered by a thoroughbred racetrack and the winery was built in the shape of a traditional horseshoe. The vineyards grow at an altitude of 550 to 650 meters (1804-2132 feet) above sea level, south of the Maipo River on the lower slopes of the Andes’ foothills. In the lower area, the soil is rich in clay while the upper area is rocky. The Andes Mountains and its vicinity to the Pacific Ocean influence the region’s climate: summers are hot and dry but are mitigated by humid ocean air and cool nights. The estate’s vineyards are planted to international varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc) that are able to find a new expression in this territory, as well as to local varieties such as Carménère – one of the most authentic Chilean grape varieties. Haras de Pirque represents Marchesi Antinori’s desire to produce high quality organic wines that express Chile’s winemaking potential while promoting the Maipo Valley’s extraordinary terroir.

The Maipo Valley is Chile’s most famous wine region. Set in the country’s Central Valley, it is warm and quite dry, often necessitating the use of irrigation. Alluvial soils predominate but are supplemented with loam and clay.

The climate in Maipo is best-suited for ripe, full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon (the region’s most widely planted grape), Merlot, Syrah and Carmenère, a Bordeaux variety that has found a successful home in Chile.

White wines are also produced with great prosperity, especially near the cooler coast, include Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
