Chardonnay Vinya Gigi Penedès Do 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Mittleres Gelb; komplexes, fast barockes Bouquet mit einer Fülle an exotischen Früchten, Bananen, Butter und Honignoten. Typische Chardonnay-Frucht im Einklang mit gut eingebundener Säure und einer dezenten Barriquenote. Zeigt viel Finesse und Eleganz und ist im harmonischen Abgang lang anhaltend.

Jean Leon felt it necessary to find the best land and climate together with the best vines. He travelled the world searching for lands, until he reached Catalonia. There he found the place he was seeking. The Jean Leon pago lies right at the heart of the Penedés region and was purchased in 1963 by grouping together several carefully selected pieces of land. The property consists in total of 150 hectares, of which only 100 are arable and of these just 67 are currently under cultivation. The vineyards are situated on a slightly sloping, south-facing mountainside in the Penedés district, at a height of 280-310 m above sea level, sheltered from the northern winds and possible frosts in winter and spring. The estate is divided into several sections of land, and only one wine is produced in each. These sections are known as the “Pagos”. Pago is a word that has several nuances of meaning: Pago wines are produced from the grapes of a particular single vineyard. No grapes are sourced from outside the vineyard for these wines. They are “own production” only. Pagos have 3 characteristics that make them unique: 1) The Land, 2) The Climate and 3) Man’s intervention in tending to the vines and understanding the land. The pago concept is equivalent to the “Cru” in Bordeaux, to the “clos” or “climat” in Burgundy, to the “Vignetti in Italy, to the “Single vineyard” in California, and to the “Quinta” in Portugal.

The 2008 vintage is a very well balanced, medium bodied cabernet. The complex flavor picks up dark berries and the earthiness of the Pendes terroir.

Helles Strohgelb mit grünlichen Reflexen, in der Nase sehr frisch, Noten von weissen Blüten und tropischen Früchten und einem Hauch Vanille. Am Gaumen erfrischend mit Rasse und Finesse.
