The Vintage
In a retrospective tasting of various vintages lately 2015 came to be called the year of the grip in the Maule wines but here from Maipo it is more restrained. It was warmer than most years but healthy and dry.

Denominación de Origen: Pirque – Maipo Valley   (Maipo Alto / Maipo Andes)

Tipo: “Elegant blue-fruited gent with muscles inside a well-cut jacket.”

Tipo de uva: Pure Cab Franc

Características de los viñedos: Ancient riverbed flows beneath the vineyard. Rio Clarillo once had two tributaries that have since dried up. Soil studies with Pedro Parra revealed the river´s path and the Franc from these bending sections of the old river are especially interesting.  Altitude allows a freshness that works very well with this variety when it is not overly extracted allowing elegant and distinct flavour profile of blue fruit and minty leaf.

 

Elaboración:

  • Naturally fermented with native yeasts
  • Open top fermenters. Caps were punched down by hand.
  • Aged in barrels over two winters— barrels third use.
  • Yeasts native (we add wine from previous vintage to a pie de cuba)
  • No temp control (besides opening closing windows) open tank, no nada
  • Pinch of sulfites after malolactic that finishes before winter begins.

Crianza:

  • Aged in barrels over two winters— barrels third use from cooperages Sylvain, Berger, Nadalie special softer Noisette toast.

 

¿Cuántos lotes hay de este vino?

Lot made from a parcel in Pirque of pure Cab Franc. We do not believe in monkey business nor tweaking with other bits we might have in bodega from other parcels. We blend the various barrels, racked separately throughout crianza, 3 or 4 days before bottling.

When we find a barrel that talks too loud or marks the blend too much we put it aside for a second wine made solera style called: Perverso.

The 7oth wine we have bottled produced since 2001 it is marked Lot # 7o

“The GWCo Cabernet Franc has that note of freshness I find in some of the best high-altitude vineyards, with some blue fruit aromas, something minty, leafy, herbal, balsamic, very fresh and a little wild. This is a vineyard at some 700 meters altitude. The palate is also very fresh, medium-bodied with very fine tannins, a fine texture and is very elegant.” — Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate # 222

Lleno de aromas a hojas de tabaco, este es un vino rico en dulzor, pero a la vez fresco y tenso” — Descorchados – Patricio Tapia


“Incredible nose of crushed raspberries and flowers. Bay leaf too. Pureness of fruit here. Full body, round and silky tannins and a beautiful freshness and length. A fabulous wine. About 14 barrels made. Try to find it.”  — James Suckling

Pirque Vineyard Maipo Valley Cab Franc 2013  – Lot # 70 – 93 Pts
The Maipo Cabernet Franc 2015 Pirque Vineyard is open and expressive and hitting on all cylinders. It feels very floral next to the 2016, which is shyer. It has polished, round tannins and feels quite gentle. Drink 2018-2o24 Luis Gutierrez

Pirque Vineyard Maipo Valley Cab Franc 2013  – Lot # 60 – 93 Pts
There is also a Cabernet Franc from Pirque labeled as 2014 Pirque Vineyard, which was cropped from vines planted in the 1980s and grown at 700 meters altitude. They always provide amusing descriptions of their wines, and this one was described as “Elegant blue-fruited gent with muscles inside a well cut jacket.” The usual modus operandi was followed once more, with native fermentation in open top fermenters with punching down by hand and two winters in used barrels. It has herbal aromas, spicier notes and especially more character than the majority of Cabernet Sauvignon from Maipo. It is also very spicy in the palate with some “morrón” pepper nuances. Very tasty, almost salty. 2,464 bottles were filled in November 2015. Drink 2017-2o27 Luis Gutierrez

Pirque Vineyard Maipo Valley Cab Franc 2014  – Lot # 60 – 92 Pts
If you want to taste the difference between Maipo and Maule, compare this Cabernet Franc with the Lot #52 release. This is denser, darker and more concentrated with plush fruit flavours and sweet cassis and dark berry fruit complemented by vanilla oak. 2018-24

Pirque Vineyard Maipo Valley Cab Franc 2013  – Lot # 50 – 93 Pts
The 2013 Lot #50 Cabernet Franc is sourced, like all the lots of Cabernet Franc, from the Pirque Vineyard in Maipo, and in this vintage the vineyard is shown on the label (well, it’s actually painted on the bottle!). It has that note of freshness I find in some of the best high-altitude vineyards, with some blue fruit aromas, something minty, leafy, herbal, balsamic, very fresh and a little wild. This is a vineyard at some 700 meters altitude. The palate is also very fresh, medium-bodied with very fine tannins, a fine texture and is very elegant. I tasted the 2009 for context and aging potential, and even when they used more oak at the time, the wine is aging very nicely, with some rusticity. 5,513 bottles were filled. Drink 2017-2o27 Luis Gutierrez

Pirque Vineyard Maipo Valley Cab Franc 2011  – Lot # 36 – 93 Pts
Este Cabernet Franc viene del Alto Maipo, de la zona de Pirque, a unos 700 mts sobre el nivel del mar, una zona privilegiado para esta cepa que no ha sido tan explotada en el Maipo. En este caso, es un Franc lleno de aromas herbales rico en frescor, pero también de una extraña complejidad terrosa, con aromas de tierra húmeda (suena raro, pero en fin, la imaginación da para mucho…) Este es un vino que tiene que probar. – Patricio Tapia

Lot #36 Cabernet Franc – 2011 92 pts (Best result for Cab Franc from Chile)
Lot 36 is from a vineyard at 700 meters altitude in the Pirque region in the Alto Maipo, a place already well-known for Cabernet. This wine has a clean aroma of raspberry leaf and red fruits along with balsamic notes and great purity. The palate is medium-bodied, fresh, clean and pure, with a bitter note that lingers in your mouth. Drink now-2017.

Wine Advocate – Robert Parker , #204 Dec 2012
Lot 28 Cabernet Franc 2010 –  92 pts (Best Cab Franc from Chile)
Lot 28 comes from 25+- year-old vines at 800 meters altitude and spends two winters in oak. It has a very convincing, fresh, expressive bouquet with pure brambly, briary black fruit and freshly tilled soil. The palate is medium- bodied with crisp black cherry and blueberry fruit on the entry. The tannins are fine and edgy, while the finish is beautifully composed and contains Margaux- like femininity. This is extremely well-crafted Cabernet Franc, surfeit with personality. Drink now-2017.

GWCo Lot # 36 Cab Franc – 2011
Bright ruby. Intense, spice-accented aromas of cherry, redcurrant and violet, with smoke and mineral topnotes. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering energetic red fruit flavors that take on weight with air. Finishes smoky, spicy and very long, with slow- building tannins and resonating florality. 91 Steve Tanzer 91   –  Josh Raynolds – Steve Tanzer Int’l Wine Cellar
