Bouchon Family Vineyards’ history began with an adventurous young French man’s dream almost a century and a half ago. Emile Bouchon left his little home of small winegrowers in Arveyres, near Burdeos, France, to board on a ship, towards Chile in the spring of 1887.  Emile came hired as a winemaker adviser and throughout many years of efforts, he was able to purchase an antique wine cellar in Colchagua Valley, turning it into one of the most prominent vineyards of that time.  His his children and eventually his grandson would continue his legacy.  His grandson Julio studied enology in Bordeaux and expanded the Bouchon project. He fell in love with the granitic soils in the interior dry area in Maule Valley, acquiring Mingre state in 1977, a distant property, which had old dry farming vineyards, besides a cement tanks cellar and simple adobe constructions, some of them from the middle of the XIX century.

Today the winery is operated by the fourth generation of the Bouchon family and a team of expert viticulturalists and winemakers working on continued innovation in the vineyards and winery with the goal of producing delicious wines. 

Tasting Notes

Bright and intense ruby color with a purple rim.  Black currant, raspberry and light baking spice on the nose along with a mineral character. The palate has refined elegant tannins, ripe berry fruit, spice, a hint of bacon and good acidity making for a juicy freshness and a pleasant finish.  Enjoy with cured meats, lamb kebabs, roast pork, roasted butternut squash, mushroom burgers.  

Method

“Vigno -Vignadores de Carignan” is a collective brand and an association of vintners that want to produce wines from Carignan.  The essence of Vigno is to preserve Maule head trained (bush vines) Carignan, which are dry farmed and not irrigated.   This wine is made from old bush vine Carignan grown on ancient soils composed of granitic rocks with a high degree of decomposition and medium clay content. Handpicked the last week of March.  Fermented with wild yeasts in concrete tanks between 24–28ºC for 14
days and left to macerate for 5 days on the skins after alcoholic fermentation.  The wine then ages in foudres for 12 months and 1 year in bottle before release.
