William Fevre, one of the most iconic producers of Chablis, turns his hand to Burgundian favourite Pinot Noir here, and very very successfully.
Really light in colour: bright with expressive red fruit and a pronounced mineral component. A very refined and approachable wine with a good acid balance and a long finish. Light in alcohol too, at 12.5%.
Eschewing the temptation to make a bombastic wine, Fevre has elected to create a vintage that delicately displays and harmoniously emphasises the unique terrior of Malleco – Chile’s Southernmost viticultural region, a cool region where vines are planted on volcanic soils.
Quino means between two rivers, and water in Malleco is abundant. Despite over 900mm of rainfall a year Fevre has elected to use minimal intervention on his vines and wines, and the Pinot Noir sees no oak, rather displaying the delicate ethereal nature of the fruit.
The 2018 wine was a Decanter Cover Star last year, and received a huge 95 points with Peter Richards MW suggesting that “this is where Chile should be looking to for the future of its Pinot Noir”. The 2019 is just as fine, with a little more body but the same refined and linear structure.
Pinot Noir pairs particularly well with food, and this beauty pairs superbly with classic dishes with light, creamy sauces, goats cheese, grilled asparagus, and with vegetable dishes, where the wine's acidity can balance the natural sweetness of the vegetables.
