Details for Corral de Campanas 2017
Bottle size and vintage
Corral de Campanas is an intriguing wine, an absolute delight from the first sip, but also capable of whetting our curiosity. It is, so to speak, a wine to reflect on, which gradually comes into its own, in a slowly seductive way.
In appearance, it is not surprisingly a wine from Toro: intensely coloured, bright, dense without becoming opaque, so showing violet hues; still young. On the nose, it is an approachable Toro, of medium to high complexity, intense, warm and fruit-forward as befits a fine Toro wine. It is pleasantly sweetish, with some subtle spicy nuances, of pine needles as well as minerals that lead to an empty bottle before we have even noticed. Its acidity is well-integrated, its good structure and fresh tannins make for a rounded, pleasurable wine that you could never grow tired of. It is not an overly powerful wine, but thoroughly pleasant, generous and well-finished, and comes over as a nicely composed wine to enjoy at any time.
Once convinced of its virtues, we might wonder whose hands have brought this lovely creation to life. On learning his name, we smile knowingly: it is none other than Jean-François Hébrard, an oenologist originally from Bordeaux but with a long and successful career in the Rhone, who was introduced to this region by friends in the profession and who fell in love with and saw the potential of the terroir of Toro, especially those really old vines, away from the river, imbuing their grapes with minerality and complexity as a result of having to penetrate their roots deep into the soil to find water. Thank you, Jean-François.

Ein äußerst spannender Rotwein mit dunkelroter, fast schwarzer Farbe. Neben dem unglaublich fruchtdichten, beerenwürzigen und absolut betörenden Bouquet überzeugt auch sein hedonistisches Gaumengefühl. Der Corral de Campanas ist und bleibt einer der spanischen Rotweine mit dem besten Preis-/Güte-Niveau überhaupt!by: Gognol (28/11/2017) - Vintage 2015
Vin concentré avec des notes de cerise à l'alcool Je trouve le vin un peu déséquilibré,on sent un peu trop l'alcool. Pour le prix je préfère romanico de teso la monja Plus équilibréby: Papa Hemingway (13/02/2017) - Vintage 2014
Very worth its price!
A young and sexy wine also for oldies... One of the best jovens from Toro, superb ruby colour and tasteful already matured taste. Goes swell with red meat and pasta.by: Angel (16/02/2017) - Vintage 2014

Quinta de la Quietud
Quinta de la Quietud was founded in 1999 by a French couple, but since 2001 it has been owned by a group of Spanish associates and comes under the technical direction of Jean-François Hébrard, an oenologist originating from Bordeaux with considerable experience in the Rhone.
