Viña Altaïr

Convinced that Chile could produce wines of Grand Cru stature the reputed house of Laurent Dassault spent years seeking terroir worthy of this great purpose. They found it high in the Cachapoal Valley on a property belonging to San Pedro. It is here that Altair was born. In order to create a true Grand Cru wine, Château Dassault lends their expertise from Saint Emilion and San Pedro lends the terroir and experience in the new world.

The first wine of the estate, Altair, is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2003 Altair is dark ruby with an excellent perfume of pain grille, spice box, red currants and black currants. This is followed by a supple wine with light tannins made in an elegant style. The flavors are ripe and the oak, tannin, and acidity are well-integrated. Give this Bordeaux look-alike 2-3 years of bottle aging and drink it through 2025. Score:
