The Private Reserve range from Bratanov is a very confidential selection, only 5,130 bottles of this wine have been produced.

Very interesting and fine aromas with mineral undertones, citrus fruits, mango and peaches. On the palate - light creamy and vanilla tones.

Direct and dry taste with a good structure and a long effect. In the aftertaste dominate the nuances of lime.

The maturity of the vintage gives the impression of being expansive, even if the structure of the wine is racy and tight. It packs a lot of youthful tension, feeling firm and clean at the moment. The long-lasting yellow herbal scent should evolve into a more fruity tone with age. A very good potential for keeping in the cellar.

Bodegas Aragonesas is a huge, marvelous estate. I remember when I was there. It was still the beginning of the day, we found ourselves in the middle of the vines on one of the highest plots (600m) overlooking the vineyard which was slowly beginning to warm up, caressed by the soft orange rays of the sun. The grapes were beautiful and firm, the harvest period was approaching. This is where I first heard about Fagus, this wine made 100% from red Grenache and after hard and meticulous work.

To understand the Fagus, what you have to do is imagine this moment of autumn or even winter, a veil of red and yellow leaves covers the trees and the ground, a down of beautiful powdery and welcoming snow, we are in a comfortable and warm home with the person we love more than anything, the fireplace is perhaps even crackling, we are happy and we taste some hot chestnuts bought recently from this merchant who cheerfully shouted "hot my chestnuts, hot, taste my chestnuts!". Well the wine that we open will be the Fagus. At this moment, we will have the impression of being able to seize the stars, achieve perfection a little more with each sip...

The cave

Although Bodegas Aragonesas was founded in 1984, the cultivation of vines - in particular Grenache - dates back to 1145 and the Cistercian monks of the monastery of Veruela, located a short distance from Fuendejalón and Magallón.

Their ancestors inherited this precious and historical heritage and they, the following generations, enriched it to reach its full potential.

They express their love for Grenache on the land and in the cellar. They know it's an essential part of their heritage and they do their best to continuously improve their growing and winemaking methods.

Their brands, Fagus in particular, are the jewels of their cellar. They enjoy an international reputation that has earned them numerous awards and accolades.

Terroir

Their 3,700 hectares of vines give them a symphony of colors. The red and stony soil offers the best environment for their main grape varieties: Garnacha, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Mazuela, Chardonnay, Macabeo and Muscat.

These vigorous and robust vineyards, some of which are over 100 years old, are firmly planted in unrivaled land which, combined with a harsh climate, gives the grapes their special quality and personality.

It has now been several years since Laurent Lozano, an immensely generous enthusiast, took over the Vaudijon estate. This majestic building, located on an exceptional terroir, had not produced wine for more than a century. As soon as he arrived, Laurent undertook a titanic task and made the whole estate organic and biodynamic. The transition is now complete and nature has now become accustomed to being cultivated and no longer exploited.

And then Laurent does not allow himself to be influenced by the effects of fashion or consumption. On its plots, you will only find Chasselas, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. A purist, who works in harmony with his terroir. And it shows in the glass!

This Pinot Noir offers us magnificent aromas of cherry, Morello cherry and flowers. It comes, without fear, to play shoulders with the greatest Pinots of the region (even from overseas) with its lively mouth with spicy notes and dense tannins. Its generous and delicate finish leaves an unforgettable memory, which can be further accentuated by decanting it beforehand.

I could talk for hours about this estate and its owner-oenologist as they marked me in the depths of my emotions. And it's the same thing that transpired when I had this wine tasted by friends who knew neither the estate nor the character... Like what, everything is felt in the bottle.

The accidental discovery of some white grape vines gave rise to more than 20 years of research. Thanks to these efforts, their first white wine was born. A terroir wine made for ageing. A marvel in its purest form!

It is largely obtained from Sauvignon Blanc, to which they add a touch of Verdejo and a little alchemy with other white grape varieties, depending on the characteristics of the vintage.

Despite the altitude and the fact that they are located in a traditional area of ​​red grape varieties, these white grape varieties have adapted beautifully to their climate. They naturally give low yields, with small clusters that benefit from the sun of Pago la Raya and the refraction of its soil made of sand, rocks and pebbles. They guarantee almost perfect ripening at each harvest, which allows them to obtain well-structured, balanced and long-lasting wines.

The vinification method is the one that has given them the best results over many years of observation, with a slow fermentation that ends in barrels, a stirring of the lees that brings richness and complexity, and a final rest of five to seven months. in new barrels and those used for previous vintages.

The result is a surprising, original, intense wine with character, full-bodied and unctuous, with a long and fresh finish. Designed to improve over time, it is a true reflection of the personality of their terroir.

Opening a bottle of this wine is setting off on an extraordinary gustatory and emotional journey...

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.

Spain, Somontano

Describing Blecua is a very complicated exercise; yes, because words fail me. There are times when even they let us down. And this usually happens in exceptional moments.

We always remember the moment when we drink for the first time a very great wine. I will never forget the first perfumes of Blecua.

It was dark, the temperature was mild. Our driver takes us on a small gravel road and, as I turn my head to see the landscape, an absolutely splendid building takes shape before my eyes! It's Blecua. A few moments later, we arrive at the large wrought iron gate that stands majestically in front of us. At the dawn of this discovery, the emotion rises. As we follow our guide, the director of the house, through a visit where everything is synonymous with wonder, one thing constantly comes back to hit me in the head: the attention to detail and incomparable quality that resonates and carries every day the magicians who produce this wine.

An hour has passed. I am seated around a table worthy of the greatest receptions that we once knew. A sound resounds. That of the first drops of Blecua leading their brooms to throw themselves into my glass. It's here, finally! It was time for my first sip of Belcua.

The symphony begins! I smell it and its ample bouquet integrates aromas from the most diverse sources: floral notes, spices, fruits and roasted aromas. This complex sensation combined, as it reaches my mouth, with very present tannins, a fruity structure and a rich body, thrills me as a wine rarely thrills me! Everything calms down, the spirits return to us, here is a great wine which illustrates Spanish modernity. This is a wine that I affectionately nicknamed: “my Spanish Petrus“.

Fearing that all this is the fruit of the emotion linked to this visit, I therefore bought bottles and had fun having them tasted, to others and to myself, blind or not, each time the verdict is unanimous (it even beat references as imposing as Vega Sicilia)!

All that remains is to order a case of this gem, open a bottle and let it air for an hour, an evening when we feel good, alone in meditation or with the person of our dreams, perhaps even add the notes of the Ave Maria, and here is the start of a waking journey to wonderland.

The cave

Just over ten years after its creation, Viñas del Vero was already the first winery in the Denomination of Origin of Somontano and was ready to launch one of its most cherished projects: the creation of a winery that would not only produce premium wines. Blecua is a charming and delicious winery that opened its doors in July 2000. It is very close to Viñas del Vero, along the Vero river that connects Barbastro to Alquézar.
Blecua, better known locally as "torre Blecua" ("Blecua tower"), dates back to the 11th century, when it served as a retreat for the French Benedictine monks of Santa Fe de Conques. It extends over fourteen hectares in the very center of Somontano and includes a beautiful Italian villa which was built towards the end of the 19th century and which Viñas del Vero restored in order to build the winery where they make their most popular wine. emblematic: Blecua.

Elaboration

Blecua is the result of a triple selection: vines, grapes, and barrels.

Viñas del Vero has selected its best vineyards as places to grow the grapes that will produce Blecua every year. These are seven or eight low-yielding vineyards, located in areas with different microclimates of Somontano, on hillsides very exposed to the sun, which allows them to pick the different varieties that make up the blend at their point of maturity. optimum.

The grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small 10 kg crates. Upon arrival at the winery, the bunches are transferred to a sorting table to be selected, so that only the best quality grapes make it to the fermentation tanks. The grapes from the different vineyards are fermented separately in 18,000 liter French Allier oak vats. Fermentation and subsequent maceration continue for four weeks depending on the grape variety. The malolactic fermentation begins in the fermentation tanks and then, once it has started, the wines are transferred to barrels.

The wines are each placed in new French Allier oak barrels from four different cooperages. After twelve months in barrels, the best of each of the wines is selected, after which the final blend is made and put back in barrels for an additional eight months of ageing. Blecua therefore spends a total of 20 months in barrel before being bottled directly from the barrels without undergoing any stabilization or filtering process.

One of the characteristics of Blecua is that it is different every year, because only the best casks of each variety are retained through each of the selection processes.

Terroir

Somontano is a region of Upper Aragon that is exceptional on two fronts: the richness of its natural environment and the beauty of its historical heritage: Alquézar, Torreciudad and the cave paintings of the Sierra de Guara are good examples.

Located near the Pyrenees and crossed by the Vero river, the Somontano offers exceptional conditions for growing vines. Rolling hills, dun-colored limestone, highly permeable soils, extreme winters and short summers create unprecedented agroclimatic conditions for the production of excellent wines. The Romans discovered it nearly twenty centuries ago and wine lovers still enjoy the results today.

Several influences come into play in the landscape of Somontano: the foothills of the Pyrenees, where the Sierra y Cañones de Guara nature reserve is located, the Sierra de Salinas, the Vero and Cinca rivers, which meander through the region and a horizon of vineyards , olive groves, holm oaks and almond trees.

In 1985, Viñas del Vero and several other local wineries instituted the Denomination of Origin Somontano which, in addition to being a benchmark of quality, is synonymous with respect for tradition and geographical origin, given that all grapes used to make DO Somontano wines come from vineyards in the area. Somontano is an innovative and dynamic Denomination of Origin which, in just a few years, has acquired an excellent reputation in the world of wine, both in Spain and internationally.

Vintages

The first commercialized Blecua wine was made from the 1997 harvest, which was released in September 2000. They only bottled 15 barrels from the 1997 harvest and the wine was made from equal amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha and Tempranillo.

Blecua 1998 was exceptional because it was a historic year for Somontano, considered by all to be the best year since the creation of the designation of origin: 68 barrels of Blecua were made, from two main varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha.

The 1999 Blecua was not released for sale, however. The wine did not meet the quality parameters they considered necessary for a wine of this level and with these characteristics, so the 1999 vintage was skipped.

Since the creation, only the 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2013 vintages have been marketed and the most exceptional remain the 1998 and 2011 vintages.

La Grande Année is Bollinger's prestige blend. It is only produced in exceptional years and with the best grapes, which is expressed in the remarkable quality of this vintage wine.

La Grande Année is the incarnation of the craftsmanship that has always been preserved by the House, all implemented, even today, during its development: The vinification exclusively carried out in small old oak barrels, 20 years old in average, maintained in the cooperage of the House and constituting a park of more than 3,500 barrels. The riddling followed by disgorging, entirely done by hand, which takes place after aging on the lees of the bottles under a cork stopper.

Thanks to its incomparable density and creamy texture, La Grande Année is truly a great wine for gastronomy.

The deep gold color reflects Bollinger's typical production method. The bouquet is complex and offers a wide variety of aromas, ranging from honey to brioche, from cinnamon to dried fruit, including notes of hazelnut and lime blossom. The bubbles are of great finesse. On the palate, this exceptional champagne is supple and opulent; we find the range of aromas of the bouquet, completed by notes of orange peel and a hint of vanilla. With its complex finish, richly nuanced and of a beautiful length, this grand cru is convincing from all points of view. A champagne unique in its style and ideal to accompany meals.

The House

Since 1829, the Bollinger Champagne House has been creating champagnes of prestigious character, which are distinguished by their elegance and complexity. These exceptional wines are the result of rigorous attention to detail, because Bollinger accepts nothing less than excellence. Each detail represents the quest for a certain form of perfection. This spirit of uncompromising independence, dedicated to accomplishment without ostentation, exemplifies the inimitable elegance for which Champagne is renowned and which so impressed the Court of England that the House has been awarded the Royal Warrant since 1884.

Terroir

The 178 hectares of the House are planted at 85% in Grand Cru and Premier Cru, spread over seven main vineyards: Aÿ, Avenay, Valeurières, Louvois and Verzenay are planted in Pinot Noir, Cuis in Chardonnay and Champvoisy in Pinot Meunier. Bollinger is one of the few champagne houses to produce the majority of its own grapes for its blends. Pinot Noir represents 60% of the House's vineyard, which corresponds exactly to the proportion of this demanding variety in the Special Cuvée blend. Complex and powerful, it gives Bollinger wines a remarkable structure.

Another peculiarity of Bollinger: two plots, Clos Saint-Jacques and Chaudes Terres, which have never succumbed to phylloxera, a disease which ravaged almost all of the Champagne vineyards at the beginning of the 20th century. These non-grafted vines are entirely worked by hand and reproduced according to a mode of stratification called provignage, thus making it possible to preserve this extraordinary heritage from which the very exclusive cuvée Vieilles Vignes Françaises is produced.
