Winery to Watch 2017

Chile: J. Bouchon

In 1887, the Bouchon family left France for Chile, where they ran a traditional winery in Maule’s Secano Interior. A new generation of Bouchons has revolutionized their wines, now fresh and full of character. The País Salvaje is a terrific example—from 100-year-old vines growing up into the trees on the side of the vineyard, so they have to be harvested by ladder. It’s a juicy, electric red, a great país from Chile.
