Dear Wine Lovers,
Settled in the middle of Patagonia, there it is a very special estate - Bodega Chacra. Piero Incisa della Rocchetta, Grandson of the famous Sassicaia producer Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, created this modern and fabulous estate. It was here in 2004 that Piero noticed the potential of its ancient and rough Pinot Noir vines placed in an great position in the glacial bed of the Rio Negro Valley. A high iron concentration before the Río Negro produces heavy red clay soils in the Mainqué area. Another part of the estate is encompassed by barda soils: eroded steep slopes with scarce vegetation. These are excellent Pinot Noirs worth exploring for any Burgundy or Pinot Noir lover, which received notable scores from both Stephen Tanzer (of The International Wine Cellar), one of the US's top wine critics and Wine Spectator.
In Patagonia, a chacra is a special piece of land destined to pomology. At the same time, chacras are vital energy centers that provide us with the ability to connect with the whole universe, with everything living and vibrating. In its nourishment, in the marriage with every meal, wine is the companion of pleasure and sensitivity. Wine is intimate and touches all of our senses. Chacra aims to enhance that connection.
Dont miss the opportunity to let your Chacra taste these amazing wines, you wont regret it!
75.0 cl Barda Pinot Noir - Bodega Chacra - 2014 CHF 26.00 ( CHF 28.10 VAT incl.)
Wine Spectator 94 Points: An elegant yet compact red, with earthy undertones to the silky cherry and red currant fruit that gives way to notes of game, tobacco and oolong tea. Best from 2014 through 2019. 250 cases imported.
75.0 cl Cincuenta y Cinco Pinot Noir - Bodega Chacra - 2014 CHF 48.00 (CHF 51.85 VAT incl.)
Robert Parker 94 Points: The 2014 Cincuenta y Cinco feels very complete even at this early stage with good concentration, ripeness and balance. It combines the elegance of the 2013 with the exuberance of 2011. Since 2011 they went for a light toast of the barrels and also started using larger volume, 600-liter formats. The oak feels perfectly integrated in the wine. In the context this is more powerful, and has a little more concentration and ripeness, but it's still a very balanced and fresh. Different to 2013, but at the same high-quality level. 19,000 bottles produced.
75.0 cl Treinta y Dos Pinot Noir - Bodega Chacra - 2012 CHF 75.00 ( CHF 81.00 VAT incl.)
James Suckling 97 Points: A superb pinot noir with strawberry, iodine, stone, and even blueberry. Medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and bright acidity. Starts slowly on the palate and then builds. Superb finish. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. About 30% new wood aging for two years. Old vine splendor.
