Review

Wouldn't it be great if the maturity found in wines from Murcia and the splendour and elegance of French wines could somehow be combined? Well that's just what has happened in this magnificent Jumilla red.

Juan Gil Blue Label appears most appealing due to its lovely violet-purplish colour and very slow tears. The aromas on the nose are profound and mineral, and mingle to evoke a landscape of olive trees, Mediterranean bushes and red fruits. After a few moments spices (vanillas, peppers and cloves), India ink and toasty notes become evident. The interplay between the Monastrell's sweet juicy tannins and the Cabernet's refined austerity make this a most memorable red with a very characterful and exciting mouthfeel. It's weighty yet it flows, it leaves an impression and an extremely good one. Most definitely, one of the Jumilla DO's finest wines.

Top a buen precio

La monastrell mejora en coupage con otras uvas con carácter o amables. Espero que esta bodega jumillana sea capaz de mantener esta calidad sin subir su precio. Por desgracia, el etiqueta plata lo han bajado en calidad añada tras añada. Espero que no suceda lo mismo con este gran vino.

Gnadenlos GUT

Von Juan Gil kannte ich schon den etwas günstigeren Etiqueta Plata aber der Etiqueta Azul ist nochmals um eine ganze Größenordnung besser. Fruchtig ung gleichzeitig kräftig und geschmeidig mit unglaublich langem und intensiven Abgang.

top

jaar na jaar steeds op een hoog niveau, krachtig maar ook toegankelijk, een aanrader voor de liefhebber van stevig spul, hout en fruit in harmonie

Jumilla con cuerpo y sabor

Un vino de calidad, con mucho cuerpo y sabor. Sabor de Jumilla característico, se nota la calidad en comparación a las otras botellas de menos barrica

Bodegas Juan Gil

The origins of Bodegas Juan Gil date back to 1916, when Juan Gil Jiménez built the winery. Today it's the fourth generation at the helm, combining traditional expertise with more contemporary equipment and knowledge. The present-day winery, which began operating in 2002, lies on very poor soils at an altitude of about 800 metres. The climate is extreme, with strong contrasts between day and night temperatures and rain practically non-existent. The stony sand and limestone ...
