All wines stored at 55° and 70% humidity
When Jean-Marc Roulot joined his friend Piero Incisa della Rocchetta in Patagonia to consult on a Chardonnay cuvée, there was understandably a lot of buzz. Piero has made a name for Bodega Chacra by crafting the most elegant and Burgundian examples of Pinot Noir I've ever tasted from South America.
Río Negro's position in the center of Patagonia makes it an ideal location for Burgundian varieties, as the cold nights and fierce winds mitigate daytime heat and preserve natural acidity, accentuating floral notes in the wines. The distinctive red clay soil with its high iron content brings a minerality perfectly suited to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Bodega Chacra is the model in Patagonia for spare no expense viticulture and vinification. All parcels are farmed following organic and biodynamic principles.
