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

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

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.

Muscular, with toasty oak and ripe melon flavors, as well as firm acidity. Has more impact than most Chilean whites.

High-toned pear and floral notes, with fresh acidity. Clean style, with little toast and a medium-bodied, easy finish. Drink now

Nice weight to the juicy pear fruit here, with pie crust and floral notes adding nuance to the crunchy finish. Drink now.

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.

Bright and minerally, with floral, flint and green apple notes that stay lively through the finish. Nice, unadorned style. Drink now.
