2015 DOMUS AUREA MAIPO VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Clos Quebrada de Macul was one of the first to plant Cabernet on the steep, low-yielding hillsides in Chile, and for years their fruit was sold to top producers in the area, becoming the most expensive fruit on the market. Proprietors Isabelle and Ricardo Peña recognized their grapes’ potential to create the best Cab in Chile, and in 1996 they introduced Domus Aurea. The wine occupies the role of Chile’s leading Cabernet and has for years. And it has the scores to back it up.
Domus Aurea hails from the winery’s 45 acre Estate Vineyards in Chile’s Maipo Valley region. They planted their vineyard in 1970 to 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, Cab Franc, and Petit Verdot.
Taking things to an even higher level in 2003, the Pena’s hired Jean-Pascal Lacaze as the lead winemaker. Jean-Pascal was born in France and trained in Bordeaux, and he’s now one of Chile’s most sought after consulting winemakers.
