Bodega Chacra - Pinot Noir Cincuenta y Cinco 2021

Bodega Chacra Description

Cincuenta y Cinco comes from vineyards planted in 1955 which gently rest on a sea of pebbles, typical in riverbed soils. It is fermented whole cluster at very low temperatures, enhancing the floral characteristics of the wine. Cincuenta y Cinco has the highest amount of tension of all the Chacra wines while it still retains a comfortable ease.

Wine Advocate: 99 Points

The élevage for the 2021 Cincuenta y Cinco was different from the past; they have now aged 40% in concrete tanks (it used to be 25%), 40% in French oak barrels and 20% in clay amphorae for nine months. They use cover crops in the vineyard, where they don't even use sulfur or copper. It fermented in a round and wide concrete vat with indigenous yeasts for 12 to 15 days with full clusters and an infusion with little extraction. It has moderate ripeness and 12% alcohol, with more tension than the others. This is basically the same wine as the Sin Azufre but with a little more oak, which is barely noticeable but with some spiciness and Burgundian character developing tantalizing notes of violet pastille with time in the glass. It has a bright ruby color and a complex and subtle nose full of elegance and nuance. The palate is medium-bodied, with very fine tannins and supple flavors, primary, young and apparently weightless and ethereal but full of inner energy. It has bright flavors of fresh cherries and raspberries and a citrus twist of orange peel that adds freshness. Gobsmacking! 30,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2021.

Decanter: 96 Points

An eloquent Pinot Noir made by Piero Incisa della Rocchetta at his biodynamic vineyard in Mainqué, Patagonia, which was first planted in 1955. Adopting a minimal intervention approach and aged – or rather cultivated – in concrete and Burgundian barrels for 11 months, it’s bright ruby red in the glass and has a perfumed nose of cherry and forest fruits, black tea, mushrooms, herbs and mineral aromas. On the palate it’s complex, layered and vibrant with chewy tannins and lasting flavour.
