To select the lots that go into this wine (560 12-bottle cases made), winemaker Francisco Baettig chose 4.5 of the 50 hectares of pinot noir that Errázuriz has in the Aconcagua Costa zone, about 12 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. It consists of three parcels with slate-rich soils, the most important of which faces south, a cooler orientation that projects that freshness onto the grapes, especially when it comes to warm years like 2019. 15% of this wine was whole-cluster fermented, and 100% of it was aged in barrels (45% new oak) for 13 months. The result is a superlative pinot with tremendous intensity but that's very fresh at the same time. The tannins construct a backbone that retains all of the fruity flavors on the mid-palate, making this a wine that offers a vertical sensation that underscores its freshness but that also underpins its body. It doesn't overflow - it's athletic and fibrous with a lot of nerve. This is the sixth version of Las Pizarras, and it's the deepest and most complex to date. It may also be the one with the greatest projection in the bottle. Score - 98. (Patricio Tapia, guiadescorchados.cl, 2021)
