Overview of the Wine
- Bordeaux based family that has been growing grapes in the Maule for 4 generations.
- With the help of Pedro Parra and a full study of their soils, J. Bouchon has re-invented their lineup of wines.
- Their Pais Salvaje or "wild Pais" is a truly natural and wild wine as the grapes are not cultivated and grow wild in their natural habitat up trees!
Bouchon Family Wines began in the late 19th century when young viticulturist Emile Bouchon left Bordeaux, France for Chile. Today, Julio Bouchon and his children carry on their 4th generation family winemaking tradition in the Maule Valley. With their in-depth soil research alongside terroir-specialist Pedro Parra, Bouchon is preserving the historic character of the Maule Valley with distinctive, terroir-driven wines.

A fruity red with a linear backbone of acidity that makes the wine fresh and vivid. Medium body. Drink now. A blend of carmenere, carignan and pais.
91 Points - Wine & Spirits
This is half carménère blended with carignan and país. It feels bright, filled with red fruit and spices floating over a layer of dense tannins. A luminous wine for roast turkey.
