Tasting notes

This magnificent 700ha monasterial estate is at Sardon de Duero, bizarrely excluded from the Ribera del Duero appellation. Pascal Delbeck (Château Belair, St-Emilion) has been in charge since the first vintage in 1996. This 75% Tempranillo, 20% Cabernet S

Lush, spicy and seductive wine, whose great depth of fruit will show well for at least five more years.
