Concha Y Toro Casillero del Diablo Chardonnay 2012
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.
The 2009 has subdued citrus fruit but is still fairly rich and sappy.Nice acid balance and good color. My rating -- 86.
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
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Casillero del Diablo Chardonnay
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.
Forward and open knit, with modest green apple and floral notes. There's a hint of lime candy on the finish. Drink now.
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.
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.
Muscular, with toasty oak and ripe melon flavors, as well as firm acidity. Has more impact than most Chilean whites.
Nice intensity of flavor, with ripe pear, apple and citrus notes and a crisp finish. vibrant and juicy. Drink now.
