Here's another wine with the backing of Domaines Barons de Rothschild. This one coming from a small valley within the Colchagua Province, Caneten Valley in Chile. Unfortunately, I can only give this wine 2 glasses. On the surface, it was pleasing to taste, but it shows a little more like a sauvignon blanc than a chardonnay. On the back of the bottle, there's mention that the winery was planted with ungrafted pre-phylloxera Bordeaux rootstock, so that may have something to do with the sauv blanc-ness to this wine. Now it's not completely devoid of chardonnay, with a little honey and apricot on the nose, and a little fuller body in the mouth, but to me it seems to end there. The rest of the fruit on the nose was more tropical, with melon, hints of grapefruit and lime. A little tart in the beginning of the palate, and moving on to citrus and honey rounding it to a medium finish. This would be a good everyday drinking wine for the casual consumer, but in my opinion not very varietal specific. But it is a 2009, maybe with a little more age at the winery would help turn this fresh fruity wine into more of a noble chardonnay.


Winemaker's Notes:

A year to be remembered for its very cold winter and dry spring. However, grapes managed to attain excellent quality and very well balanced ripeness for the harvest, first in the Colchagua Valley and then a little later in Casablanca and Leyda. Bright yellow robe with slight golden sparks. The nose boasts a true explosion of melon, banana, grapefruit and more exotic fruit with hazelnut notes. The mouth is savory, fresh, and pleasing, with a nice fruity character, good volume and a long finish.
