Chile’s Colchagua Valley—located in the southernmost portion of the Rapel Valley—has emerged as one of the world’s greatest regions for rich and opulent red wines made from Carménère, an ancient grape varietal originating in Bordeaux. The preeminent producer of this oenological gem is this meticulously managed estate, owned by the Marnier-Lapostolle family, founders and owners of the world-renowned liqueur Grand Marnier. ($80)
