Scoring 16 Dionysian points, the 2012 Marques Casa Concha Chardonnary from Concha Y Toro in Chile, cost under $29, and has 14% alcohol in it; a bit too high for Chardonnay. I’ve been to their winery in Chile, and it is very American-like; even their tasting room. That may explain the higher alcohol.
It had lots of oak, was smooth and rounded-out with some tropical fruit notes.
At seven years old, it is peaking. I’m surprised. In Vino Veritas.
