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 Read more »

  • Jean Leon Merlot Pago 2003


    The wine has an intense deep ruby color. Surprises in the nose with its intensiveness and complexity of dominant barrique flavors (vanilla, butter toast) with fruit aromas (blackberry, red cherries) and a sense of sweet plum marmalade. In mouth holds what promises in the nose: complexity of aromas in an excellent balance with each other. Wine wi... Read More
