Critical Acclaim

SP90 Wine Spectator Aug 31, 2015

"A ripe and muscular red, with concentrated flavors of plum pudding, cherry tart and dried blackberry, filled with Asian spice notes. Finishes with dark chocolate, mint and minerally accents. Drink now through 2020. 25,000 cases made." (90 pts.)

VN90 Vinous Jun 2015

"Saturated ruby. Energetic red berry and floral aromas are complemented by deeper notes of mocha and vanilla. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and cherry flavors given spine by juicy acidity. Clings with very good tenacity on the finish, which is given shape by smooth, fully absorbed tannins. While this wine has plenty of material to age, it’s pretty tasty right now." (90 pts.)

RP89 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Dec 2015

"In 2013, they changed the source for their Merlot from Rapel to Maule. So the 2013 Merlot Marqués de Casa Concha is produced with fruit from San Clemente in the Maule Valley, and contains 15% Cabernet Sauvignon from vines planted between 1997 and 2000. As many of the reds lately, the wine was aged in a combination of 5,000-liter botti and French barriques (25% new) for some 15 months. It has a fresh and balsamic nose with some minty notes and also a bright note I often associate with Cachapoal, which Marcelo Papa tells me it’s more Maule, quite aromatic and showy. This is nothing like the Merlots from the past, and the wine shows much more acidity and freshness, showing the character of Maule, much sharper and fresher. 260,000 bottles produced." (89 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.
