Tangible proof of elegance, balance and constancy characteristic of the Marques de Murrieta Winery and its surrounding vineyards situated in the Ygay Estate, it is a red Reserva wine with a balanced aging of two years in new and partly new American oak barrels and a year and a half in bottle. The result is an elegant wine that combines complexity and fineness, summing up the best attributes of our identity and actuality. Marqués de Murrieta is more than a brand in the international market, it represents age-old wisdom expressed in one of the most recognized wines of Spain. With our daily work, respect and love for our land, the selection of the best grapes and the attention to detail throughout its almost four years of production, Marqués de Murrieta is a safe and constant value of the best quality.
The freshness of the fruit prevails in the nose of this Marqués de Murrieta Reserva 2016; aromas of strawberry, cherry, floral hints, eucaliptus tree, thyme and fine cabinetry.
In the mouth the wine is harmonious, fresh and it has polished tannins that provides the wine with a pleasant texture. Its fruity long finish keeps an extraordinary freshness.
A Sancerre highlighted by its typicity with a delicate nose with aromas of white flesh fruits and citrus which continues on the palate with added exotic fruit, subtle yet powerful.
Produced by Jean-Marie Bourgeois who is rapidly achieving an international reputation as one of the leading figures in Sancerre and Pouilly Fume; this has a wonderfully concentrated smokey fruit flavour.
Dark plum, leather and delicate violet aromas, plus notes of woodsmoke and brown spice. A full, firm and ripe red with rich, powerful flavours. All balanced by ripe tannins, complex savoury notes and a long finish.
Grapes grown from some of the most choice land in the surrounding region of La Motte en Provence, consisting primarily of Grenache, Cinsault and Vermentino
Classic Provence rosé, expressive and aromatic, blending fresh cherries and floral notes alongside more exotic fruits then finishing with a soft round palate packed with peach and raspberry.
I have just tasted the very first bottle of 2020 Whispering Angel Rose and it is sensational. The haunting canteloupe-tinged aroma, silky texture and bracingly dry finish mark this as a stunning balanced vintage. Chapeau! - Matthew Jukes
