Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
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."
