Review

The Jean Leon Nativa range, made with native Catalan varieties, is a tribute to Penedès, a place chosen by Jean Leon to fulfill the dream of making a wine that bears his name. The Catalan tile, a valuable testimonial piece of our history and popular life, inspires this collection. The Rosa de los Vientos illustrates this ecological, fresh and elegant xarel·lo, made 100% with the quintessential Penedès variety. 12 days of alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature of 15oC. Aged on fine lees and a small percentage aged in acacia barrels for 3 months.

Bright yellow color with greenish trim. On the nose it stands out for its citrus, fennel and nutmeg aromas against a background of white fruit. In the mouth, fresh entry and frank acidity. This fine and elegant acidity accompanies the entire journey in the mouth. It presents a soft and persistent finish sweetened by its volume and smoothness, the result of work on the lees.

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...
