The wine

A very limited production wine (15 barrels) and select, one of the four premium wines from Abadía Retuerta. Silky, warm, with a firm and structured body, with a long finish. A great wine for aging, a single variety of petit verdot, unique and original.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The real surprise of the tasting, the 2015 Petit Verdot is truly spectacular in this warm year, possibly the best bottling of this varietal they have done so far. It is open, expressive and elegant, with an unusually perfumed nose showing aromas of dry flowers, citrus peel and oriental spices. It has none of the roasted notes the variety can sometimes deliver, and I would have difficulties naming the variety if I tasted it blind. The palate is medium to full-bodied with very fine tannins and great harmony; this is elegant, hiding its power. It has tremendous freshness. It seems like the variety thrives in years like 2015—it's expressive, tasty and very long. This is scarce, and scarcity is reflected in the price. 3,245 bottles, 90 magnums and 20 double magnums were filled in May 2017 from 12 barrels. A monumental bottle of Petit Verdot.

More recently, in the 1970s, the former owners pulled up the vines growing...
