James Suckling gives high scores to Marques de Casa Concha

After tasting more than 1,000 wines, the critic was once again surprised and celebrated the excellent quality achieved by the country’s producers.

US wine critic, James Suckling, released a new report on Chile. After tasting more than 1,000 wines, the critic was once again surprised and celebrated the excellent quality achieved by the country’s producers, particularly with the 2018 and 2019 vintages.

This year Syrah took all the honors: “We have a weakness for Syrahs that express different terroir and winemaking skills, and whose quality competes with the best in the world, but at only a fraction of the price. The quality, diversity and more than reasonable prices convinced us that Chilean Syrah has come of age”.

One of the excellent scores went to the Marques de Casa Concha line scored over 91 points in all the varieties tasted by the critic, making it the best-ranked wine line in the super-premium segment.

The 2019 Etiqueta Negra wine especially stood out with 94 points and the 2020 Rosé Cinsault with 92 points, making it the best rosé in the report.
