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.

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

The 2009 has subdued citrus fruit but is still fairly rich and sappy.Nice acid balance and good color. My rating -- 86.

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.

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.
