Aristos, Duquesa d’A Grand Chardonnay du Chili, Cachapoal 2008

Aristos, Duquesa d’A Grand Chardonnay du Chili, Cachapoal 2008
A new dimension for Chilean Chardonnay. Sensationally complex and savoury, with intense flavours of roasted nuts and tangy red apple. Both the alcohol and price are high on paper, but you resent neither in the tasting. 19.5pts/20 (98/100pts)
Price £50.78–£62.50 Justerini & Brooks, Slurp
Drink 2013–2015
