NOTES.

Ratings are for wines which we have purchased in the United States, Canada or Great Britain, and we believe are available in one or another store in the larger cities in one or more of these three countries. There is, however, no attempt at constructing an exhaustive listing. Chile is the world's tenth largest producer of wine, and obviously many more vineyards and varieties exist in that country. We are painfully aware that we will never have the time or resources to learn about them all.

(1) Ratings are given for wines personally tasted by Liane and Sergio Sismondo. Other people's recommendations are duly noted in our database but are not included in these listings. Generally, ratings under 80 indicate wine which has gone bad. Ratings between 80 and 89 are for wines which one would buy again. ratings of 90 and above are for excellent and "grand" wines.

(2) The approximate retail price we have found in the United States, Canada or Great Britain, converted to US Dollars. Where we have found significant discrepancies in price we have taken the lower price. We have rounded the figures to the nearest dollar.

OUR FAVORITES (BEST VALUE FOR THE MONEY).

Our favorite white wine under ten dollars from this list, and tasted recently is the Sauvignon Blanc by Veramonte, vintage 2000, from the vineyards in the relatively new region of Casablanca. Our favorite red wine under ten dollars from this list is the Cabernet-Sauvignon by Cousino-Macul, vintage 2000, from the vineyards in Valle del Maipo. Stores are already beginning to stock the 2001 vintage of this wine, which is in our view ever so slightly less flavorful. Maybe it will improve as it ages a few months. Meanwhile, however, it may be worth a small hunt to find stores that still have the 2000 wine on the shelves.

For a red wine just over $10 our choice is the Cabernet -- Sauvignon Reserve by Carmen Vineyards. It was god in 1999 and is excellent in the 2000 release. It begins with a rich and varied bouquet with suggestions of nuts, and continues with a dry but mellow flavor with hints of fruits and herbs -- laurel, sage, rosemary -- and leaves behind an elegant and proportioned taste, which invites another sip.
