40ºC in the shade on the 13th of August, and highs of 32,5ºC in summer. A very rainy winter (rain and snow). 529,3 mm. of precipitations in the vine-growing year.
Excellent spring and bud break => Great vegetative expression. A historically warm summer which caused great water demand. The old bush vineyards endured well.
Rainfall during the first fortnight of September. The harvest improved at the end.
Selected bunches from different plots. Applied methods from own research and development on polymerisation of tannins and anthocyanins.
From the 25th to the 28th of September.
In French oal vats, with controlled temperature.
In 100% brand new French oak barrels. 8 months in barrels and 4 months in bottles.
By natural methods, clarification using only egg whites, without filtration.
Very deep, with a high layer and a dark cherry background. Notes of evolution can be seen on the edging, curiously more than in 2001, although it is younger.
It is deep, with many mineral notes and slightly smoky. The fruit is very ripe with a black profile and some red flashes. The set of the nose is of great depth. In the background there is a certain sensation of liquor, mixed with aromatic plants and black cocoa reminiscent of a liqueur and herbs chocolate.
It is very voluminous and very friendly, covering the mouth with aromas and flavors of candied and liqueur fruits. The hot vintage that was 2003 is perfectly noticeable but it is very well interpreted.
The tannin is impeccable and at the same time the density and aerial character can be appreciated. The aftertaste is very long and pleasant with the sensation of a liqueur of cherries and plums.
