99 points, “Great aromas of dried strawberries and fresh flowers, such as lavender. Full-bodied yet very tight and focused. Impressive tannic structure, but refined and polished. Lightly chewy. Finishes tight and refined. Best Pinot of Chile. Drink after 2022, but hard to hold back.” – James Suckling

96 points, “The wine has great purity and transparency and is very clean and expressive, with good complexity and aromas of blood orange and sour cherries, a note of iron and a touch of cinnamon. […] The wine is a lot more elegant, and I think it’s the best vintage so far of a wine that can now be the benchmark for the variety in Chile.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

With the critics calling this Chile’s greatest Pinot Noir, it’s quite simply a must-try. 

Las Pizarras is an innovative venture from Errázuriz exploring the terroir of Aconcagua Costa, and the results are nothing short of spectacular. Applying their unparalleled knowledge of the local vineyards, Errázuriz uncovered a cool-climate estate with slate (‘pizarras’ in Spanish) soils. The wines they produce there can rival the finest wines on the planet.

2018 was a cool and dry year, allowing slow and steady ripening. The result is immense complexity and a stylishly refined Pinot Noir. Expect exquisite notes of rosehip, cherry, bergamot, strawberry, blueberry, orange peel, hot cross bun and wildflowers. If this Pinot Noir came from Burgundy or California, the price would be astronomical.

Chilean wine is considered ‘New World’ by many. But when you learn that Don Maximiano Errázuriz Valdivieso founded Viña Errázuriz in 1870, it makes a bit of a nonsense of that outdated moniker. Today, under the watchful eye of Eduardo Chadwick Claro, Errázuriz is one of Chile’s most iconic and one of the world’s most famous wineries.
