Clos D Agon Amic 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The story of the Clos d’Agon winery begins in 1987, when a French couple decides to buy the old country house Mas Gil, where 12 hectares of vineyard planted with hybrid varieties, narrow planting frames and glass conduction already exist. The owners get advice from professionals like Pierre Galet and André Crespy, professors at the University of Montpellier, and decide to pull up the old vineyard and plant prestigious French varieties for the production of quality wines. After this stage, six Swiss wine lovers and friends, including Franz J. Wermuth (Les Grands Vins Wermuth), Frank Ebinger (Casa del Vino Ebinger) and Silvio Denz (Château Faugères, Château Rocheyron, Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Montepeloso) acquire this renowned viticultural environment in 1998 and hire, as wine consultant, the oenologist Peter Sisseck, who produces in Ribera del Duero great wines such as Pingus, Hacienda Monasterio, etc. At this stage a new project towards an increased production of quality wines is undertaken, with the construction of a new winery designed by architect Jesús Manzanares and an increased plantation area by retrieving old terraces in the higher parts of the property. Currently, the technical director Miguel Coronado, advised by oenologist Peter Sisseck, continues working to make the most of the particular terroir of Clos d’ Agon, and to thereby further develop great wines that are characterized by a marked style and quality. The vineyard is situated on the plateau behind Calonge in the protected natural area “Les Gavarres”. It has a Mediterranean climate influenced by the Tramuntana and the breezes from the sea. The grape harvest usually begins in early September and ends in mid-October. The vines grow on clay and slate soils with a mainly North – South orientation. The Red grape varieties that are used are Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The white ones are Viognier, Marsanne and Roussane." - Winery
