MARQUES DE CASA CONCHA CHARDONNAY IN THE DECANTER’S RANKING OF THE TOP SOUTH AMERICAN CHARDONNAY
The Chardonnay produced by Marcelo Papa also received 90 points in the prestigious publication.
Marques de Casa Concha Chardonnay 2017 was named among the Top South American Chardonnays under £20, published this March. After tasting 74 Chardonnays from Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, the renowned Master of Wine Peter Richards prepared a list of the top 20 wines of this variety produced in South America, with a key focus on the quality-price ratio.
The Master of Wine described the 2017 Marques de Casa Concha Chardonnay as:
“Smoky, rich and generous. Since launching its Maycas operation, Concha y Toro has been sourcing more and more Chardonnay from Limari, and here’s why: the generous flavors are underscored by a fine balancing acidity and gentle earthiness and minerality. Toasty, peachy flavors with a touch of spice.”
