Food Pairings for Villard Estates Esencía Grand Reserve Pinot Noir
Perhaps Cono Sur has been pushing the envelope for better and better Pinot's from Chile for years but Villard is perhaps an example of something with more individual characeter. This wine is positively goloso, complex and yes delicious. As Chile has planted nearer to the coast for a decade now, and continues to open up new areas of fresher reds (syrah and cab franc as well) do not be reticent and you wil be blown away some of the time anyway. This is a solid bottle of Pinot that perhaps help to shed mystery on where Chilean pinot is going -- early on it was so typical and now the coast is the limit! Perhaps the only better example of pinot was a Garage effort from a few years ago http://www.garagewineco.cl though I have not yet seen any Garage Wines reviewed on snooth ?
