This report covers the wines that are being released through the Place de Bordeaux in March 2023, covering here the non-Bordeaux wines, with ex-château releases from Château Latour joining next week.

As Jane highlighted: “The arrival of Chilean wine ViK Millahue with its 2019 vintage coincides with the 10th anniversary of the launch of the wine’s first vintage. Originally a blend of five varieties, it now comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, and is a estate that was planted on entirely virgin land, creating a new wine region in Cachapoal Valley’s Millahue district.”


VIK Cachapoal Valley ViK Millahue 2019

The floral side of Cabernet Sauvignon is very much to the fore in this wine, more than I expected to be honest with a Chilean Cab. Waves of iris and peony are set against raspberry and blueberry fruit, with a smoky caress of grilled sandalwood oak, and sweet red liqourice notes that add depth without being overpowering. An enjoyable wine with lift and character. This is an unusual estate that was planted on entirely virgin land, creating a new wine region in Millahue with owner Alexander Vik and winemaker Cristian Vallejo.

Aged in a mix of oak and amphora. New to the Place de Bordeaux this year. Hold +2 years or carafe 4 hours.

Acclaim continued to grow for VIK during 2023, as its 2019 harvest obtained an outstanding score also from James Suckling: 98 points. The latter shows, once again, the quality and consistency of this world-renowned icon wine and the work of winemaker Cristián Vallejo.

VIK 2019 vintage will be sold through the world’s most prestigious fine wine distribution network – La Place de Bordeaux. The move represents a milestone along VIK’s road to excellence, which began at its inception.

This coming March, with the 2019 vintage of its icon wine VIK, Viña VIK will join the exclusive French wine distribution network, La Place de Bordeaux, the oldest and most prestigious of its kind in the world. This achievement is a watershed moment for VIK, which in just a short time has managed not only
to earn extraordinary scores, but also to amaze the industry’s most demanding critics and consumers. This is the first time that such a young winery (just 17 years old) has managed to place a wine made in Chile in the network. One of the main objectives of the winery now, is to gain a wider distribution, focusing on Asia and Europe.
