Errázuriz MAX Pinot Noir 2016 (90 JD)
“The 2016 Pinot Noir MAX is a solid value and over-delivers with its cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, with fine tannin and no hard edges, it’s well worth its going rate and is ideal for drinking over the coming couple of years.”
Maximiano Errazuriz founded Errazuriz in 1870 in the foothills of Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Andes Mountains and the Western Hemisphere. Recognizing that this valley, with its hot, dry summers and cool Pacific Ocean breezes, was ideal for growing grapes, he sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world-class vineyard. Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano’s descendant, Eduardo Chadwick.
