Wine Advocate
Viña Cobos, 2016 Bramare Chardonnay Marchiori Vineyard

"One of three Chardonnays I tasted and one of two single-vineyard ones, the 2016 Bramare Marchiori Estate Chardonnay has been produced for longer and is sourced from 20-year-old vines in the Marchiori Vineyard that belongs to the family of one of the ex-owners of Viña Cobos, in Perdriel, Luján de Cuyo. Since they decided not to filter the two top Chardonnays in 2016, this might show a little cloudy, but at the same time, it shows more complexity, combining volume with great elegance. This feels very complete. They have started harvesting a little earlier, and that seems to have been something they liked and are going to continue doing here and in other wines. As with the other wines, they are also lowering the percentage of new oak used and are introducing 500-liter barrels, which have a different ratio of wood to wine. It's clean, characterful and very tasty, with good concentration from older vines. 2,760 bottles produced."
