Fruits de Mer
Founded in 1856, Cousiño Macul is the only winery in Chile amongst those established in the 19th century that continues in the hands of the original founding family. The name of the winery is derived from the family name of its founder (Matías Cousiño), plus the name given to the area where the esrare was built, within the Maipo Valley: the company name implies “the Cousiño estate at Macul”. The Cousiño Macul winery is today governed by the sixth generation, direct descendents of its founder, Matías Cousiño. As said by Arturo Cousiño, Chairman of the Board of Directors, “Our objective is to produce world-class wines that are authentically Chilean, wines that have true varietal character and express the unique terroir of the Maipo Valley.
What to drink with... Fruits de Mer.
If you’re having a Seafood Platter, don’t overpower the delicate flavour of the shellfish, try our Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico, our Château Civrac Wild White or one of our Sancerres. With oysters, don’t add a condiment like lemon or vinegar, instead let your wine do the job: Domaine Bernard Moreau Bourgogne-Aligoté, Domaine des Hâtes Chablis or, if you’re feeling adventurous, our Maestro Sierra Fino Sherry. Stuffed, baked shellfish will pair well with a white Rioja: Bodegas Las Orcas Decenio Blano. If you’re planning lobster & chips with a dollop of mayo on the side, then try an oaked Chardonnay or a Bandol rosé.
