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
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.
Forward, with piecrust, pear, fig and butter notes backed by a hint of hazelnut on the soft 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.
Light and fresh, with flint and apple flavors followed by modest toast on the 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.
Ripe, mouthfilling glazed pear and tarte Tatin notes stay fresh and lively, as honeysuckle and green plum notes stretch out the finish. A superb value. Drink now.
