Concha Y Toro Chardonnay Casillero del Diablo 2007
Wine Tasting Notes Clean and bright. Light yellow. Combining richness with elegance and vibrancy this ripe, delicious wine serves up tasty pear, fig and toasty hazelnut. Deeply concentrated with silky texture and layers of ripe, opulent fig, pear and hazelnut. It finishes with a long and vibrant character.
2007 Chardonnay is amazing! Medium body, golden color, deep rich long lasting finish. Delicous and can beat many $20-30 dollar Chardonnays for half the price! The 2008...> Big Let down...An entirely different wine. The color, the density, the flavour is not worth the experience. Watered down middle of the road...Dissappointment.
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Chardonnay Casillero del Diablo
Bright and minerally, with floral, flint and green apple notes that stay lively through the finish. Nice, unadorned style. Drink now.
Nice and clean, with ample stone fruit and apple aromas. No, not a lot of nuance on display. But plenty of ripe, pure apple and melon flavors followed by some length on the mildly creamy finish. Solid, with mass-market appeal.
High-toned pear and floral notes, with fresh acidity. Clean style, with little toast and a medium-bodied, easy finish. Drink now
In the 19th century, the founder of the winery spread the rumor that his deepest cellar was the Casillero del Diablo (Cellar of the Devil) to keep his workers from sampling his greatest wines. Today, the cellar still holds the finest wines of Concho y Toro and this is a prime example of their high standards.
Medium yellow color. High-pitched orchard fruit aromas of pear, quince and Granny Smith apple. Round and juicy, with a pure pear flavor that takes an exotic turn toward peach with air. Round, silky and juicy, finishing with vibrant notes of pear skin and lemon thyme.
Ripe, even lush tropical fruit aromas mingle with apple-pear scents on the nose of this round, medium-weight Chardonnay. The full, slightly sweet fruit maintains on the palate, framed nicely by butter and toast accents. The oaky notes linger on the finish, with its apple-pear reprise.
Ripe pears, pineapple and hazelnuts on the palate, leading into a long, dry finish. This Chardonnay is blended from separate lots, some aged sur lie in oak and others in stainless steel.
