Jean León Chardonnay Penedès Vinya Gigi 2007

Member Review by WinePleasures:

2008. Straw yellow. Tropical fruits hit you straight away. Green apples, lemon and lime. Slight kind of buttery aroma lurking in the background - yeastyish. Smooth and creamy first in texture with great acidity. Interesting coupage - very pleasant. Excellent for a fideua or paella or even to sit around with friends and drink and chat. A snip at only 5 Euros (winery price)

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.
