2019 Chacra Patagonia Chardonnay (750ml)15 2 0 0
Chacra was created by Piero Incisa della Rocchetta in 2004 with the intention of finding the most unobstructed expression of the climate, micro-climate, and terrior of Mainqué in the Río Negro region of Patagonia. Respecting the environment by following biodynamic and organic principles, Piero strives to make wines that are transparent, pure, delicate, and floral with strong minerality.
2019 is the third vintage produced with the help of Jean-Marc Roulot (of Burgundy fame), particularly for the Chardonnay. Jean-Marc is not a consultant here, he's a co-owner.
"The tension and density are so in balance, showing flint and matchstick notes. Full-bodied, creamy and very salty with a long, focused finish. Love the tight, subdued character here. A thoughtful, serious wine that needs contemplation. Drinkable now, but better in 2022 and onwards." 99 points - James Suckling (11 Feb, 2020)
