STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
« Atamisque », is a bush of local origin, which grows naturally in the surrounding area of the winery. It is the iconic brand of the winery. The wines are aged between 14 to 16 months in pristine French barrels.
This property, which originally possessed 19,000 ha, was divided at the end of the 20th century. The estancia passed through several owners, until a French man acquired it: John Du Monceau. He had fallen in love with the place and had decided to settle down there with his wife, Chantal, whose grandfather had been a winemaker in the French region of Beaujolais. This prompted her to support the idea of building a winery in the property. Thus « Bodega Atamisque » was born, inspired by the name the land once possessed.
The first harvest was proudly achieved in March 2007. Aged 14 months in French Oak Barrels.
Intense ruby red with purple reflections and subtle violet sparks. Notes of violets typical of the variety: ripe black fruit and dried raisins, jam notes with subtle hint of coffee and tobacco. In the mouth, excellent concentration, voluptuous, blackberry jam and plums, the tannins give great structure, balanced with a surprising smoothness. An intense and elegant wine.
