Review by Vinous; 93
"A Cabernet Franc from Pirque, Maipo that spent two years in third use barrels. A textbook wine for the region in terms of how the ripeness is handled: on the nose it presents fresh blackcurrant and cherry with mint and a bell pepper backdrop. Complex and attractive, it is fleshy on the tongue offering elegant tannins and just the right, designer freshness"
Review by The Wine Advocate; 94
"The 2016 Pirque Vineyard is a little closed but feels very solid. It has varietal and zone character, without excessive mintiness, faintly balsamic. It's still very young, but it seems to have all the ingredients for a great development in bottle, with the textbook tannins. Derek Mossman described it quite accurately as an “elegant blue-fruited gent with muscles inside a well-cut jacket.” There you go! 3,012 bottles were filled from 11 barrels in November 2017 as Lot #80"
