Burgundy from Patagonia?

Burgundy from Patagonia?
For years we have seen collaborations between famous Bordeaux Chateau's and Argentine Bodegas, the likes Caro (Bodegas Catena and Baron Rothschild) come to mind, but rarely have we seen a Burgundian collaboration, until now plus throw in some great press too! We are very excited to offer the 2017 Bodega Chacra Barda Pinot Noir from Patagonia, made in collaboration with Jean Marc Roulot, owner and winemaker of Domaine Roulout in Meursault.

2017 Bodegas Chacra “Barda” Pinot Noir, Patagonia Argentina...$21.99
The 2017 Barda is approachable and soft, with sweet fruit, in a more commercial profile. It comes from different vineyards—the majority from one plot planted in 1989 and small portions of older vines. It's a little more concentrated than usual, as they had very low yields, so it has some tannins, even if they are very fine grained. It fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts, and one-fourth of the wine matured in French oak barrels for ten months while the rest was kept in concrete
