Marques Del Villar 2014 - Les Passeurs de Vins, Rioja, Espagne

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

This Spanish wine was a real surprise. Rioja is indeed very well known for producing rich and flattering wines. However, it’s pretty rare to reach such a combination of power and complexity. I hope that you will appreciate as I did these intense aromas of cinnamon and red and black berries. A silky and elegant wine, with a great structure, perfect to experience the best Spain has to offer. 

 

Terroir

Rioja did not randomly become the main wine producing region in Spain. Located a hundred kilometres at the south of the Atlantic coast, the vines benefit at the same time from the warm and sunny weather, typical from central Spain, and the freshness of the marine winds from the ocean. It allows elaborating warm and even opulent wines balanced by a nice liveliness.

lecepage Grape variety

Tempranillo is by far the first variety in Rioja where it originally appeared. Thus, it represents 70% of the total production of the area. It is believed that its name comes from the word “temprano” which means early in Spanish, which would make sense as it reaches full ripeness several weeks before the other local grape varieties.

lemillesime Vintage

A wine full of challenges for Spanish winemakers! The spring started well thanks to strong Mediterranean and continental influences from the south and the east. But the oceanic influence took over later and brought freshness and humidity. Fortunately, the powerful Spanish sun came back in September which allowed the grapes to fully ripen and give highly concentrated wines. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Les Passeurs de Vins is a typical bromance. Under the name “Lionel Osmin et Cie”, Lionel Osmin and 5 of his friends travel in northern Spain looking for the best vineyards in order to buy the best grapes and elaborate in their winery original wines according to their tastes. The team has recently got a new member: French national rugby player Imanol Harinordoquy, passionate about wine, who wanted to get on board !
