Review

A single vineyard wine from these 10 hectares planted with Merlot in 1991, and divided into two areas with different soil compositions. One has calcareous-clay and is compact and deep, with little organic material, enabling wines of great concentration to be produced. The other is sandy with gravel on the surface in part, thus resulting overall in balanced wines of high aromatic expression.

Appearing a cherry-red colour of good depth, the wine reveals a highly intense nose with ripe red fruit notes, integrated into a background of spicy and toasty aromas. Starting with a powerful entry, the palate shows a perfect balance between the fine tannic structure and elegant acidity. A touch of sweetness and plenty of silkiness come through, and the lengthy finish recurs and lingers well.

Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

    Sehr Inhaltsvoll

    Wenn Jean Leon einen Merlot heraus bringt ist er immer sehr kritisch. Dieser Wein als Merlot ist mit 14,5 % Alk. sehr tiefsinnig, man muss in mögen !

    Jean Leon

    Founded in 1964, the Jean Leon winery is owned today by the Torres group, but preserves the spirit and philosophy of its creator, Jean Leon, a notable figure with very close links to the world of cinema and the Hollywood glamour of the 1950s and 60s. Quite a legend inside and outside the sphere of wine, Jean Leon is none other than Ceferino Carrión, from Santander and a humble background. After a complicated childhood that took him to Barcelona, Paris and New York, he eve...
