93

I retasted the pure Cabernet Franc 2017 Pirque Vineyard, which seems to have calmed down its minty and creamy Maipo Cabernet personality in this last year and a half. It comes from a vineyard planted in the 1980s in Pirque at around 700 meters in altitude. They treat this like their other single-vineyard wines, with fermentation in open-top vats with indigenous yeasts and punching down, trying to control the power. They picked this a little earlier and managed to bottle a wine with 14% alcohol and good freshness. 4,071 bottles were filled from 14 barrels in January 2019. This is their 90th wine, marked Lot #90. Better than I anticipated.
