Carmenere do Chile - from Wall Street Journal



O Wall Street Journal apresentou em sua página de degustações, uma uva conhecida no Brasil, a Carmenére. Teoricamente extinta segundo os europeus, e redescoberta nos vinhedos de Merlots no Chile, esta uva oferece um excelente vinho com buquê especial, ótimo para ser apreciado com Carnes vermelhas.

Já apresentei anteriormente esta vinícola, só que naquela ocasião o vinho Merlot. Bem, terei agora de procurar o Carmenere desta vinícola e atestar o que foi apresentado pela Dorothy e o John. Abaixo o vídeo apresentado no Wall Street Journal, que apresenta nossa sorte: facilmente achamos um Carmenere e com custo compatível.


Tastings columnists Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher tasted several reasonably-priced Carmenere red wines, which had charm and grace when not cluttered by oak.

In a broad blind tasting of Carmenere from Chile, these were our favorites. We generally prefer these young. These are good with hearty fall foods.


Terra Andina 'Reserva' 2007
(Rapel Valley). $11.99.
Very Good. Best of tasting. Distinctive, with black pepper and green pepper. Relaxed, earthy and warming, with roasted fruits and a long, meaty finish.


Cono Sur 2008
(Colchagua Valley). $8.99.
Good/Very Good. Best value. Rich, round, peppery and lively, with ripe, dark fruits and surprising acidity. Soft enough for easy enjoyment, but with plenty of verve, too.


Concha y Toro 'Casillero del Diablo Reserve' 2008
(Rapel Valley). $10.*
Very Good. Super pleasing. Made us think of stew—not just because it would be a good pairing, but it has the same rustic sense. Complex tastes—chocolate, nutmeg, prunes—that all come together in a lovely package.


MontGras 'Reserva'
(Colchagua Valley) 2008. $14.29.
Good/Very Good. Sleeker than many, with blackberry fruit and a spicy finish. Elegant and smooth, like a Barry White song. Tastes expensive.


Note: Wines are rated on a scale that ranges: Yech, OK, Good, Very Good, Delicious and Delicious! These are the prices we paid at stores in Illinois and New York. *We paid $12.29 for Concha y Toro, but this price appears to be more representative. Prices vary widely.
