100 points - On May 13th 2016, Viñedo Chadwick 2014 scored a perfect 100 points from international wine critic James Suckling.
This outstanding recognition marked a milestone not only in the history of Viñedo Chadwick but also for the Chilean wine history, as it was the first time a wine from this country achieved 100 points. This perfect score positioned Maipo Alto and Chile among the most prestigious world-class appellations for red wines, such as Bordeaux, Tuscany and Napa.
Following his recent visit to Chile, during which he tasted more than 600 wines from different valleys, international wine critic James Suckling published his article entitled “Chile’s Evolving Quality Wine World” in which he awarded Viñedo Chadwick 2014 100 points: “Perhaps a sign of Chile truly coming of age is the 100-point rating in this report of the pure Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Viñedo Chadwick. This is a wine that defines the greatness of Chile with a purity, structure and finesse that competes with the best reds of the world. This is a wine that defines elegance and power at the same time.”
Suckling described the wine as “complex aromas of blueberry, blackcurrant and black liquorice. Full bodied yet refined and beautiful with a stunning length and complexity. It has a transparency that shows such greatness and beauty. Half the normal production. Has an energy and brightness. Chile’s first perfect wine and well deserved. Better in 2020.”
This important 100-point score crowns Viñedo Chadwick’s highly successful history as a world-class wine achieved through a passionate commitment to quality, perseverance and constant quest of the pure expression of the terroir.
