Jean Leon, Vinya Palau Merlot, Penedès, Spain, 2015
(at Jean Leon Tasting, 03 Jun 2021)
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2026
From a 10ha Merlot vineyard planted in 1991, this spends 12 months in French oak, with further time in bottle before release. Ripe black fruit edged in earthy, dry Mediterranean herbs on the nose and palate, which also shows nice freshness and acidity, plus warmer plum and blueberry notes.
