Concha Y Toro Chardonnay Casillero del Diablo 2009
The 2009 has subdued citrus fruit but is still fairly rich and sappy.Nice acid balance and good color. My rating -- 86.
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Chardonnay Casillero del Diablo
Forward, with piecrust, pear, fig and butter notes backed by a hint of hazelnut on the soft finish. Drink now.
One of the best under-$10 Chardonnays anywhere is Casillero del Diablo, made by Marcello Papa of Concha y Toro. The wine overdelivers on the nose, where custard, lemon blossom and buttered popcorn work in tandem to set up eye-opening apple, melon and light mineral flavors. Not heavy but still full and toasty. A rewarding and generous wine; get it while you can.
Light and fresh, with flint and apple flavors followed by modest toast on the finish. Drink now.
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.
Fig, hazelnut, floral and orange blossom notes run through this focused Chardonnay. Good length on the finish. 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.
The 2007 Chardonnay reveals pear, apple, and pineapple in its fragrant perfume leading to an intense, ripe, and lengthy Chardonnay.
