One of Chile’s most prized vineyards, Clos Quebrada de Macul, located in Alto Maipo, home of Maipo’s best viticultural areas, produces world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. The Peña family was one of the first to plant Cabernet on the region’s lower-yielding hillsides, which today is some of the most expensive fruit in the area, having amassed a history of high-scoring, memorable wines.

The Peña’s released their first vintage of Domus Aurea in 1996 after recognizing their vineyard’s remarkable quality. It quickly became one of Chile’s most sought-after Cabernets, gaining worldwide attention with consistently high scores. Jean-Pascal Lacaze, the lead winemaker since 2003, has evolved into one of Chile’s most revered winemakers by dependably producing exceptional wines with a distinct Chilean character with a bit of a French accent.

Description

2017 DOMUS AUREA MAIPO VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

“The 2017 Domus Aurea is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot that shows the textbook minty and stony character from the place. It fermented in a very traditional way with indigenous yeasts and matured in French barriques, mostly new, for 16 to 18 months. The wine is ripe and powerful, to the point that the oak seems to be absorbed almost immediately. This feels a bit riper when tasted next to the 2018. It’s expressive and open with a more extrovert personality. It’s full-bodied, juicy and powerful and with very tasty and spicy flavors.”
