Bodega Chacra Barda Pinot Noir 2019
The Wine Advocate reports : I visited Chacra and met with Piero Incisa dela Rocchetta from the Sassicaia family in Italy. His property in Río Negro, Patagonia, is devoted to the production of Pinot Noir. The winemaker here is Han Vinding Diers of Noemía fame also in Río Negro. There are three lines of Pinot Noir: Barda, Cincuenta y Cinco and Treinta y Tres. Barda is the entry level, fermented in 60-70% oak barrels and 30-40% cement. In 2010 they saw the first results in the vineyard, after years of working in biodynamics since 2004. These are the best Pinot Noirs from Argentina. Bravo Piero and Hans!'
James SucklingI love the forest-fruit, must and wet-earth character here. Perfumed. Medium body, very fine round tannins and intense, crushed stones. Hints of cedar and hazelnuts. Crunchy. Always an exciting pinot noir from Argentina.
