Critical Acclaim

RP91 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Dec 2015

"The 2012 Clos de Lolol is a blend of Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Carménère with Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot aged in French oak -- the blend that François Lurton believes represents the region where he works. It has a very balsamic nose with aromas of eucalyptus and Mediterranean herbs with bright cherry fruit underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with some grainy tannins, juicy fruit and good acidity. The Syrah (which is around 55%) seems to dominate the blend, but the other grapes add flavors and nuances. I had the chance to taste a barrel sample of the 2013, and I found brighter fruit and more freshness. I look forward to it. 24,000 bottles produced." (91 pts.)

WE90 Wine Enthusiast 12/31/2015

"Initially, this seems hard and piercing on the nose. The tight palate with scratchy tannins is home to ripe, medicinal flavors of berry fruits, burnt toast and black coffee. A minty, oaky finish is the close on this blend of Syrah, Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink through 2018." (90 pts.)

SP88 Wine Spectator Web only – 2016

"Plenty of wild green herb notes to the bright, lively red berry and currant flavors. The fleshy finish has pepper and green olive accents. Drink now. 6,666 cases made." (88 pts.)

Chile

With its stunning, snowy mountains and beautiful beaches, Chile would be captivating even if it wasn’t turning out some of the most interesting and accessible wines in the world. But large producers like Concha y Toro and Casa LaPostolle have put Chile on the wine map with their complex yet value-driven Merlots and Cabernets, and lately smaller regions like Maipo, Casablanca, and the Bio Bio Valley have become more widely available.

Now, Syrah, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc, and even that elusive beast of the wine world--affordable Pinot Noir—have joined the ranks of Chile’s most famous offerings. And don’t forget Chile’s signature grape, Carmenere--a peppery, purpley beast that goes wonderfully with grilled meat dishes. Best of all, Chile offers some of the best value in the world, with many outstanding wines selling for under $12.
