Chateau Los Boldos

the GEM of BURGUNDY

THE SPIRIT OF CACHAPOAL VALLEY

 

Chateau Los Boldos is a 250 hectare estate located 120 km south of Santiago,Chile. The vineyard is planted at the foot of the Andes near the village of Requinoa.

The region benefits from a favorable microclimate, balancing the temperature differences between day and night, and allowing slow and complete ripening of the grapes. This vineyard was established in 1850; it is one of the oldest in Chile. It is mainly planted with Cabernet Sauvignon which comes from French grape varieties.

These best plots come from high quality grapes, vinified in the pure French tradition and aged in authentic barrels. oak from the Tronçais forest(Allier).

 

PHILOSOPHY

The vineyard benefits from exceptional climates because of the various names ranging from Nuits-Saint-Georges to Gevrey-Chambertin. It is mostly composed of old vines, all situated in prime locations, on mid-slope mainly on clay-limestone soils.

The estate is today in the process of organic certification although the estate has been run fully organic since 2016.

The yield is limited to obtain grapes that are naturally balanced and ripe. Rigorous grape sorting takes place in the vineyard during late summer (green harvest) and the estate is aiming at producing approximately 25 -30 hectoliters per hectare on average for the whole production. The harvest is entirely handpicked then sorted carefully at a sorting table upon arrival in the cellar. A selection of 60% whole clusters goes to the vats. The grapes are kept intact so as to keep the terroir flavors as natural and accurate can be. The remaining 40% is destemmed.

A supply strategy ensuring an optimum quality :
The estate has specialized in buying grapes which they harvest themselves and which are selected in the most prestigious plots : Chambertin, Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Chapelle-Chambertin and Griotte-Chambertin. To produce wines which can be compared with those of the estate, Christophe Perrot-Minot has full freedom to sample the ripeness of the grapes and sets himself the date of the wine picking which he does with his team.

His wines are pure and balanced, extremely delicate and easily digested. They are in the tradition of the classic and timeless wines.
