Viña William Fèvre Pinot Noir la Misión Reserva 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This tiny production Chilean Pinot Noir is a RIDICULOUS value that majorly outperforms competitive wines in this price category. Fresh, earthy, and spicy, this Pinot delivers a wallop of bright sour cherry fruit and graceful notes of cinnamon and nutmeg on the finish. Produced in the Pirque region of the Maipo Valley by William Fevre, the famed producer of Chablis in Burgundy, in collaboration with the Pino-Arrigorriaga family of Chile. Super refined and pretty for a $12 Pinot!

The history of wine-making in Chablis goes back to 865 AD with the development of vineyards by the monks of Saint-Martin-de-Tours on slopes facing the Serein River that cuts through that village. At that time and for the centuries that followed, the Chablis wine trade grew substantially thanks to the waterways that made it possible to supply Paris from Auxerre. With the French Revolution, estates changed hands but remained successful, and the total vineyard surface area reached 38,000 hectares. The end of the 19th century saw the coming of phylloxera in 1887, which wreaked havoc and reduced the vineyards to almost nothing. It was only at the beginning of the 1960s, when the Chablis vineyard surface area was less than 1,000 hectares, that Chablis wine production took off again with the growth of mechanization and setting up of anti-frost systems (another plague for the vines of the region). The current productive vineyard surface area is 4,580 hectares. Read less
