2017 Bodega Chacra "Treinta y Dos" Pinot Noir Rio Negro

SKU #1442754 98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A standout Pinot with such purity, complexity and fragrance on the nose. Beautifully ripe cherries and berries abound. Plenty of blue fruit. Very aromatic. The palate has a beautifully detailed thread of fine, gently assertive tannins. Great expression of Pinot Noir here. Long life ahead of it. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

Outer quote mark The top-of-the-range 2017 Treinta y Dos is always released later than the other reds, as the élevage here is longer. The year was extremely low yielding and with natural concentration, a year of freakishly high temperatures (they had eight days at 53 degrees Celsius during their Christmas!). Grapes were healthy but smaller and they decided to pick extra early (this is also 12.5% alcohol), so the wine is less reflective of the natural weather conditions. The full clusters fermented in open-top vats, and the élevage was 35% in concrete and the rest in used barrels and lasted for 14 months. There are notes of cherries, and there is a savoriness—almost saltiness—that makes it very tasty. The wine is integrated and balanced; there is a faint touch of volatility that lifts up the wine and helps to keep the freshness and poise. This is a superb effort for a very unusual year, but all the 2017s were great here. 6,696 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2019. (LG) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

K&L Notes

Chacra Treinta y Dos is a single vineyard wine, made from old vineyards planted in 1932 on a land layered with clay, sand and pebbles. The most structured of all Chacra’s wines, Chacra Treinta y Dos is meant to be aged. Its soft characteristics and velvety tannins, however, make it drinkable at a younger age. This red balances toasted spice and mesquite notes with the macerated cherry fruit character, remaining fresh through the mineral-tinged finish. Aged for 18 months 20% in cement and 80% in 2nd and 3rd use French oak barrels. *organic, biodynamic*
