A powerful wine of which only 19,500 bottles and 25 magnum bottles of 6 liters are produced. The grapes, which all come from the same vineyard of Villabuena, speak of refined nobility: old vines with a low yield. The conscientious effort is complete through the entire production process: fermented in American oak barrels then aged in new French barrels for 18 months and bottled in September 2003. The elements of intense, lively and mature fruit engulf the mouth and are very integrated with the oak, proffering toasty allusions and hints of vanilla, cinnamon and coffee. The result on the palate is elegant, compact, dense and very personal, with an aftertaste of quality.
