Tasting Notes from the Curator

A sip of Clos de luz Arao Carménère paints an intense portrait within the taster’s palate. It stirs up an aroma reminiscent of ripe black fruits like blackberries and plums, stenciling a vivid backdrop for the first layer. Delicate hints of herbs and spices leap forth next, offering a zesty contrast before the final accents of smooth dark chocolate fill up the senses. Flavors tighten this intricate weave of sensations, stitching in the succulence of dark fruits, the playful spiciness of black pepper, and the distinctive suggestion of tobacco. Completing this picture of luxury is the wine’s texture - smooth as velvet, with tannins that blend seamlessly, enhancing the depth and complexity of this artistic creation.

Pairings & Suggestions

  • Grilled Steak: The rich and bold flavors of a perfectly grilled steak form a beautiful duet with the Clos de luz Arao Carménère’s elegance and bold structure.
  • Hearty Stews: The full-bodied complexity of a traditional beef bourguignon or coq au vin aligns well with the wine’s rich flavors and balanced acidity.
  • Roasted Root Vegetables: The natural sweetness of roasted root vegetables like carrots, parsnips, and beets harmonizes wonderfully with the intricate flavors of the wine, creating an enriching culinary experience.
  • Mushroom Ravioli: The earthy allure of mushroom ravioli, when accentuated with a rich, buttery sauce, forms a symphony with Clos de luz Arao Carménère, prompting a beautiful dance of flavors on the plate.

    The Rediscovery of Charm in Carménère

The tale of Clos de luz Arao Carménère begins with a surprising twist in history. Carménère, originally the pride of Bordeaux’s vineyards, was believed lost to the phylloxera plague of the 19th century. But destiny had another story to write. Rediscovered in Chile’s vineyards during the 1990s, the Carménère grape variety found a new home in South America. Clos de Luz’s wine, produced from some of these very vineyards in the Maule Valley and Colchagua Valley, thus carries in its heart a soulful story of loss, discovery, and revival. Drinking a glass of Clos de luz Arao Carménère is like listening to a melody echoed across time and continents, resounding with nature’s profound notes of resilience and rejuvenation.
