Chileans on the Top: Wine Spectator’s Top 100 for 2010

Logo-Wine Spectator Top 100 2010 Four outstanding Chilean wines made it to the most recent Wine Spectator Top 100 wines of the year 2010.

This year’s list shows a classic Cabernet Sauvignon from the quintessential Chilean Cabernet region, Alto Maipo, a fine example of the Chile’s cool climate Pinot Noir, and two examples of just how good Chile’s Syrah’s can be. The list also reflects moves made to explore new terroirs; De Martino’s Syrah is the only wine produced from the remote and northerly Choapa region, and the MOVI-member Polkura Syrah is from the cooler sector of Colchagua, Marchihue.

This year’s representatives of the Chilean line-up are:

Concha y Toro Marqués de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 from Puente Alto (Maipo Valley) (92 points)

Veramonte Pinot Noir 2008 from Casablanca (90 points)

De Martino Legado Syrah 2007 from the Choapa Valley  (90 points)

Agrícola la Viña Polkura Syrah 2008 from the Marchihue sector of the Colchagua Valley (92 points)

Congratulations one and all!

    Ich habe kürzlich in der Schweiz con Pérez Cruz einen 2008 Reserva Carmenere probiert – und war restlos begeistert.
    Können Sie mir eine Bezugsquelle (Importeur) in Deutschland nachweisen ?
    Stellt Perez Cruz auf der ‘ PRO WEIN ‘ in Düsseldorf aus ?
    Danke für kurze Info.
