Concha y Toro Castillero del Diablo Pinot Noir, Casablanca Valley 2007, Chile
Cellar: Castillero del Diablo, Concha y Toro
The cherryish nose showing sweet berry fruit with minty sappiness carried through to finish. Surely the warm, dry and long summer of 2007 in Casa Blanca, coupled with the cool westerly wines from the ocean, had rendered this intense, mid-plated, nicely balanced Pinot Noir possible. The 7 years’ bottle-ageing did bring in lots of Burgundian-like nuances , which made this Concha y Toro Castillero del Diablo Pinot Noir 2007 the best valued wine we Dunn Dunn Wine had ever been able to source so far. A rare fine.
