Natalie's Score: 91/100

A vibrant, full-bodied pinot noir with fleshy ripe cherry and berry aromas. Its juicy and generous but balanced with some terrific acidity for planked salmon or roast chicken. Montes is a flagship producer for Chile, and their wines are always incredibly well priced in relation to their superb quality and taste. Try and see for yourself.

Pinot Noir food pairings: planked salmon, roast chicken, pork tenderloin, pizza, beef.

Reviews and Ratings

Aurelio Montes pioneered viticulture in the A[alta Valley within the Colchagua region of Chile, in establishing low-yield, steeply planted vines in the mountains. Richly concentrated and flavourful. Finishes with wood smoke and licorice. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
