Legend has it that in the early 1890s, winery founder Don Melchor went to his cellar to discover several of his best wines had gone missing.

Casillero del Diablo is a label produced by Concha y Toro Winery in Maipo Valley, Chile. Legend has it that in the early 1890s, winery founder Don Melchor went to his cellar to discover several of his best wines had gone missing. Hoping to ward off more thieves, he spread the rumor that this must have happened because a devil lived in his cellar, hence the name, which translates to “the devil’s cellar.” The first wines branded Casillero del Diablo were produced by Concha y Toro in 1953 and became an international success by the 1960s. The devil icon became a part of the packaging starting in the 1990s. The portfolio is now under the direction of winemaker Marcelo Papa. The wines are available in many styles and varietals of dry reds and whites, plus rosés and sparkling wines. Many of these considered terrific values for their pricepoints.  Read less

Nose is characterized by green apple and vanilla. Good acid balance and good amount of extract. Not as big as the 2011. My rating -- 88.

A very decent, correct wine - in the varietal sense. Nice apple, peach and pear notes with light oak. Recommended to the neophyte for an introduction to Chardonnay as it should be in the quotidian sense.

This Chardonnay was tasted at six years old and was amazingly young tasting. It's fruit is doing well and has a lemon, toast and honey character. Nice wine for the money. My rating-- 88. Over the hill now--Nov 2014. Don't bother.

Tropical, cremy fruit aromas. This full-bodied chard has melon, hazelnut and woody notes. Moderately acid and leaves a long crispy finish.

Mild acid with a hint of toastyness. Brighter wine with a tang. Not very creamy

Gears up with basic aromas of apple and tropical fruit. The palate is round and a little syrupy in feel, with candied, sweet flavors of melon and banana. Has the weight and sweetness to offer mass appeal.

A crisp Chardonnay packed with tropical fruit flavours and subtle hints of vanilla. Medium bodied with good balance and a fresh finish.

Mass Chardonnay from Chile doesn't come much better or more consistent than this. It's toasty on the nose, with candied, lightly creamy banana and citrus flavors. Very nice as a fresh young wine, with a touch of heat on the finish. Great for picnics and backyard summer parties.

Farbe helles Gelb. Ein Chardonnay mit fruchtigen Papaya- und Pfirsichnoten sowie einem Hauch Vanille und gerösteter Haselnuss. Mittlerer Körper, vieschichtig, schmackhaft und ausgewogen, frischer Abgang.

Forward and open knit, with modest green apple and floral notes. There's a hint of lime candy on the finish. Drink now.
