2010 BARDA PINOT NOIR Bodega Chacra
|Grapes: Pinot Noir
||Origin: Argentina, Patagonia
Lea & Sandeman review
The 2010 Barda Pinot Noir is simply fabulous, and as Piero Incisa states, not only the best wine he has made to date, but also exactly where he wants it to be in terms of style and quality. This is more elegant, and paler than in previous vintages yet with a fresh intensity that gives great length. Its drinkability is even more enhanced by the significant drop in alcohol to only 12%. Perfect with Thanksgiving and Christmas turkey!
Other reviews and comments
Wonderfully, fragrant, with rose and pot pourri and just a suggestion of sweet, smoky bacon and salted caramel. The palate is effortlessly elegant, light and silky, yet with layers of flavour. Get to know these Bodega Chacra wines if you don't already. You owe it to yourself.
Argentina's best pinot noir is rooted in Patagonia, where the 2010 Bodega Chacra Pinot Noir expresses Río Negro's scent, texture and bright mulberry-cherryish purity.
Anthony Rose, The Independent
Delicate fruit; decant and put on
(not pour over) ice.
Bob Tyrer, The Sunday Times
Argentina, the home of plush, full-throated malbec, is not generally associated with the more elegant, evanescent qualities of pinot noir, but the wines of Bodega Chacra, from the southern wilds of Patagonia, are glorious exceptions. Chacra's pinots are sensual and silky, and this is better than any sub-£20 red Burgundy I've tried.
David Williams, The Observer
Bright medium red. Subtle, high-pitched aromas of strawberry, redcurrant, cherry and spices, complemented by a sweet earthy component. Tangy, light and juicy but also sweet and pliant, with lovely energy and intensity to the red fruit flavors. Finishes with lightly dusty tannins and lingering sweetness. A very successful vintage for this bottling.
