2017 Montes Alpha M
2017 Montes Alpha M This newly released 2017 vintage of our super icon Montes Alpha M impresses with an intense and very lively ruby colour. The nose offers its characteristic elegance and aromatic richness. Notes of liquorice and cherry are immediately apparent, and as the wine opens up aromas of sweet chestnut, nutmeg, crème de cassis, and tobacco appear, all well-integrated with delicate toasted oak. The palate is beautifully balanced; medium- to heavy-bodied, with smooth tannins. Cooked black fruit flavours appear and underscore notes of sweet spice, which linger on the palate.
93 Vinous: Time in barrel enhances the flavors of black currant, cherry and mint. A complex wine held together by firm, polished tannins that compress it like a well-tailored corset, so that the fruit reverberates in the mouth.
The story of Montes seems like a dream and, truthfully, that’s how it began, becoming progressively reality. It was in 1987 when our two visionaries partners, Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, with extensive experience in the world of wine, wanted to realize their dreams of producing wines of a quality far superior to the one that was being produced in Chile at that time. They added in 1988 the other two original partners, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, each making their special and complementary contribution, thus giving birth to Viña Montes, called in the beginning DiscoverWine Ltda. A dream come true, of four great visionaries, who have achieved over time, Montes and Montes Alpha wines will reach more than a hundred countries, be recognized for their extraordinary and permanent quality and, at the same time, attract the attention of the entire world about the wines that Chile can produce.
