Spain, Somontano

I actually discovered Abadia Retuerta in 2018 during a trip to Spain from Madrid to Barcelona, ​​stopping at many areas. I could speak for hours of the beauty of the estate, of the wonderful people who received us, of the hotel in the middle of the vineyards simply named "Le Domaine", an old abbey dating from 1146 which had been abandoned and which was restored with exceptional care and attention to detail by Abadia. But it is on this last point that I will develop my explanation of this area: "care and attention to detail". In Switzerland, there is a watch brand called "Greubel & Forsey" and their slogan is “watch inventors.” For me, Abadia Retuerta are “wine inventors”. They are such enthusiasts that they have been joined by the best since in particular the facilities were designed by Pascal Delbeck, owner of the exceptional Château Ausonne. They planted, studied, created and developed methods specially adapted to their terroir to offer us wonderful wines.

The Selección Especial, entry level of the estate is nonetheless a great wine. It's like pushing open the door of an abbey and then, once inside, discovering a fresco by Michelangelo; marvel at these features mixing fruit and acid as well as intense perfumes to finally find yourself admiring next to a gentleman with a face that lets you imagine thousands of stories, smoking his cigar, too, although having an immense life experience, in awe of the detail and smooth finesse of this work...

The cave

Abadía Retuerta is a Spanish winery founded in 1996. The estate is located just outside the boundary of the Ribera del Duero region, in the province of Castilla y León, in north central Spain, near the village of Sardon del Duero. Located 32km east of the city of Valladolid, it sits in wine estates that stretch from Tudela de Duero to Peñafiel, known as the "golden mile". In particular, it is only a few kilometers from the famous producer Vega Sicilia.

The domain

The Abadía Retuerta estate extends over 710 ha, of which 210 ha are planted with vines. The altitude is 640 m near the Duero River and rises to about 780 m. The composition of the soil is heterogeneous, with sand, clay and some gravel near the river and limestone interspersed with aggregate boulders and stones on the top of the hill. The climate is extremely continental and semi-desert, with hot summers, cold winters and average annual rainfall of 300 mm to 450 mm. Being outside the DO Ribera del Duero allows them to use drip irrigation when they need it. The 54 plots extend over 206 hectares (HA) of which 146 are planted with Tempranillo, 40 with Cabernet Sauvignon, 16 with Merlot, 2 with Syrah and 2 with Petit Verdot.

The installations

The winemaking facilities were designed by consultant oenologist Pascal Delbeck, owner of Château Ausone, who still works with the estate and Angel Anocíbar. The winery is designed around a gravity flow system and has a laboratory and a 5,000 barrel capacity aging cellar carved into the side of the adjacent mountain. Wines can be aged in the 80 stainless steel vats, or in any combination of the 3,700 225-litre Bordeaux-style barrels, made from 80% French oak and 20% American oak. Some French oak comes from Limousin forests, others from Allier trees. Humidity and temperature are maintained at optimum levels for wine development.

France, Maconnais

Among its many qualities, this Chardonnay from JOSEPH DROUHIN strikes first with its delicate bouquet, which combines floral notes with seductive aromas of very ripe exotic fruits and discreet hints of almonds. But the palate is just as interesting. The classic structure coupled with a hint of bitterness, the well-balanced fruity acidity and the slight mellowness merge into a harmonious whole on the palate. This Pouilly-Fuissé from the south of the Mâconnais is an advantageous wine with a good hold that knows how to show off until the finish.

The cave

Founded in Beaune in 1880, Maison Joseph Drouhin gradually expanded from the cellars of the Dukes of Burgundy and the Kings of France (12th to 18th centuries), to the Moulin de Vaudon (18th century) in Chablis.

The requirement, the curiosity of the spirit, the sense of values, the passion and the audacity are transmitted at the same time as the knowledge and the intuition of quality.

Today the fourth generation holds the reins. Everyone has their role and implements the "Charter of Excellence" of the Drouhin family.

Terroir

With 80 hectares, Domaine Joseph Drouhin is one of the largest in the region. It is distributed throughout Burgundy: Chablis (38 hectares), Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, (38.5 hectares), Côte Chalonnaise (3.5 hectares), and includes a majority of Grands Crus and Premiers Crus, planted two Burgundy grape varieties: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The Estate has been built up over time, through judicious acquisitions and family agreements. Some plots are among the most famous crus of Burgundy, such as Clos des Mouches, Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche, Musigny, Clos de Vougeot or Corton-Charlemagne, etc.
