Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “The Cincuenta y Cinco, pure Pinot Noir from a vineyard planted in 1955 as captured in its name - Cincuenta y Cinco). It is vibrant expression that screams Bodega Chacra right from the glass on the nose and palate. All the signature red fruit nuances are there, it is an explosion of red and blue fruit with bright cherries, raspberries, pomegranate, cranberries, a touch of citrus along with the perfect accent of crushed flowers, dried herbs and earth. For IWM team, this is the most delicate, finessed and arguably purest expression to date – at just 12% alcohol, this is a wine that you can drink the whole bottle (as we did) and not feel the aftermath. While elegant and light on its feet, there is a concentrated core that persistently builds and lingers, echoing throughout the palate that says Cincuenta y Cinco. With air-time, the wine gains weight and texture and it is our recommendation that it should be allowed to breathe. What can we say, we love this Burgundian-like expression that remains uniquely Patagonia and continues to make you rethink what the noble varietal can achieve outside the Cote d’Or. Well done, once again.” more info

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: "This is truly an exciting new chapter for Chardonnay and Bodega Chacra. Piero has opened our eyes and ears to Pinot Noir from Patagonia, and now with Jean-Marc Roulot, he is doing it with Chardonnay. There are two cuvées, the more village-like Mainque Chardonnay, which is produced from both domaine and rented vineyards, and the more vineyard-specific 2019 Chacra Chardonnay., produced from 40-year-old vines in mineral soils with alluvial stones covered in calcaire. Each has the signature Roulot cut of freshness, purity, and salinity, combined with Piero’s concentration without extraction — a mouthful of fruit, but incredibly light on its feet. With old-vine Chardonnay, you will find more cut, minerality and energy. You can expect to find nuances of lemon curd, lime, green apples, maíz, fleur del sol — delicate touches, not what you would expect from the desert with temperatures reaching the 128 degree mark. There is brightness with the ripeness and texture, just enough tension to separate and put this wine in a league to itself. With aeration, the wine displays an awesome inner perfume that echoes on the finish. An absolutely stunning, stunning effort (if you can find it). What a great wine to pour blind and stir up conversation. Like Piero’s Pinot Noir, more proof that truly exceptional Chardonnay can be made outside of Burgundy." more info
