This wine with a great personality has been produced entirely from Cabernet Sauvignon variety grapes grown on a limestone-rich terroir blessed with its own microclimate. After a thorough maceration, it undergoes 18 months of aging in new French oak barrels.
The result is a wine with an intense dark red colour that – despite its heavy body – releases a delicate air of sweet spices, exotic fruit and mineral aromas. Its persistent black current bouquet is a mark of its breeding. Overall it is a complex and generous wine that earned up to 97 points in Wine Advocate, published by the renowned American critic Robert Parker.
Although the variety is not typical of the area, Pago Valdebellón has known how to respect the spirit and the age-old tradition of the Abbey.
The 2016 Pago Valdebellón is fresh and complex on the nose, evoking aromas of garrigue (thyme, etc.). Its fresh herby notes reveal the true rank of this estate wine. Hints of balsam and subtle floral notes fuse together with coffee and pepper. In the mouth it is elegant, sweet, with character and personality; the wood is elegant and perfectly integrated to make a wine that is complete and rounded.
