Jean León Merlot Penedès 2004

Member Review by WinePleasures:

Cherry-berry with an orangy tint. Still lots of fruits of the forest on the nose. Licorice, cloves, coffee, pepper, smoke all in there. Strong secondary aroma of vanilla. Bottle we are tasting has been open for a while so slighty oxidised. Well balanced but it has been open for a while. Good acidity still some fruit. Tanins still fairly high. Long finish - very long. Reserva so 18 mths ageing. Ideal wine for game dishes such as pheasant and meats served with a sauce.

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.
