Julio Bouchon, Pais Salvaje 2019
This is as wild and natural as it gets. In 2017 30% of the grape were macerated carbonically. It has pale blush of red colour, with aromas reminiscent of chicory, a distant trace of bush fire, a raspberry pippy purity and a juicy, evocative, naive beauty. The 2018 has no carbonic or smoke but is no less beguiling.
Wild vines from this heritage grape grow with no intervention whatsoever, so are never pruned and climb up trees, competing for the rain water and nurtients in a creek. 10 metre ladders, as shown on the label, are required to hand harvest grapes from these ancient, sprawling vines, fermentation is with native yeast and ageing is in concrete vats and sulhpur levels are very low.
Upon returning from Bordeaux, France, where he studied enology, Julio Bouchon S. decided to look for a new terroir for pursuing Bouchon wine growing project. That was how Emile's grandosn fell in love with the granitic soils in the interior dry area of the Maule Valley, acquiring Mingre estate in 1977, a distant property, which had old dry farming vineyards and cement fermentation tanks.
