Chilean wine producers are developing new styles, using grapes from vineyards planted in the far south of the country and the granite rich soils of the coastal mountain ridge known as the Cordillera de la Costa. Meanwhile, in Maipo, the Cabernet Sauvignons are growing ever more precise. This report provides an overview of these trends and what the changes mean for lovers of Chilean wine.

2017 Mas d’En Gil Bellmunt Vi de Vila Priorat ($25.00) 92

2017 Mas d’En Gil Bellmunt Vi de Vila Priorat, 92 points

Raised in large oak and concrete vats, this exuberant Priorat delivers classic character at a bargain price. The Bellmunt offers finely etched, mineral-driven cherry, floral qualities and discreet tannins. There is enough depth to reward patience, assuming you can resist its immediate charms. (JR)

($25.00)
