Marques Del Villar 2015 - Les Passeurs de Vins, Rioja, Espagne

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

This new vintage of Marquès del Villar was love at first sip ! This rich wine is as original as it is warm and flattering on the palate. Cinnamon and forest fruits create a mesmerizing mix and the whole is carried by a remarkably soft texture. I advise you to taste this wine in your sofa under an air of Carmen to fly to Spain ! 

 

Terroir

Rioja certainly is the oldest and most famous appellation in Spain for those red wines which unveil unsuspected qualities. Planted 400 meters above sea level and protected by three mountain ranges, the 60,000 hectares of vineyards benefit from a specific geographical location which favors a particular microclimatic development adapted to the grape harvest.

lecepage Grape variety

Tempranillo is the king of the wine-growing region of Rioja, where this grape variety was born. Thus, this represents a total of 70% of the total production of the vineyard. A small anecdote : its name is a derivative of the Spanish word « temprano », meaning early. This name makes perfect sense as it ripens several weeks earlier than most Spanish red grape varieties !

lemillesime Vintage

In France, the 2015 vintage stands out and is part of history in almost every wine producing region. For Spain, 2015 is also synonymous with successful harvests thanks to a mild weather. The summer, especially marked by a lack of water, created a water stress causing the vine to go deep under the ground to draw water. Grapes have reached a very high standard, far beyond the last 15 years ! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Les Passeurs de Vins is a wine story, but above all, a friends’ story. Under the name of « Lionel Osmin et Cie », Lionel Osmin and five of his Basque friends discover the most beautiful vineyards in northern Spain, in order to obtain the best grapes and to elaborate original wines with their own values. The more the merrier, another huge amateur just came to support this club of joyful passionates, Imanol Harinordoquy (former national French rugby player), Basque indeed !
