Bodegas Teso la Monja Alabaster 2011 75cl 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo).

Van ALABASTER wordt verwacht dat het de opvolger van Termanthia zou kunnen worden (de familie EGUREN verkocht Termanthia in 2007 aan Moet & Chandon en startte in hetzelfde jaar een nieuw project: Bodegas Teso la Monja)).
De familie EGUREN zet consequent haar traditie van zorgvuldigheid en kwaliteit voort. De druiven worden uitsluitend met de hand geplukt en in kleine dozen verzameld om beschadiging te vermijden. De opbrengst bedraagt 10hl/ha.
16 maanden gerijpt op Frans eiken. Uitsluitend geoogst van wijnstokken van 65-100 jaar. Volle aromatische wijn. Pruimen, zwarte bessen, kersen, mineralen, prachtige tannines en een grootse finale.

The Wine Advocate:
The 2011 Alabaster was picked on October 3 and 4 at just nine hectoliters per hectare from the pre-phylloxera vines and aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels. There is still some oak to be subsumed on the nose, although the palate offers lovely, supple, ripe, velvety smooth tannins. There is a touch of mocha remaining from the oak, although it is certainly well-balanced with a vibrant spicy finish. It has great potential. Drink 2016-2025+.
Just as many music artists must ponder exactly how they follow up a global smash, so brothers Marcos and Miguel Eguren must have sat down and wondered how they could repeat the success of Numanthia-Termes, after they sold the estate to LVMH. They founded Teso La Monja in 2007. They farm 90 hectares of what they describe as “middle and old vineyards” plus another 72 hectares of “young” vineyard. I asked Miguel to explain his approach towards viticulture. “It is growing the healthiest, purest grapes as possible,” he replied. “The philosophy is to transmit the character and the essence of the land into every bottle of wine. Everything is done with the minimum intervention, the vinification more Burgundian in style than Bordelais, to look for gentle extraction, obtain and look after the tannins in the pips. Therefore, we are seeking a lower degree of natural alcohol. We are looking for the freshness and elegance. We have sought north-facing, high-altitude vineyards with a longer vegetative cycle and we are looking for minerality. Our passion is the vineyard. Our wines are different – we are looking for acidity around 5 or 5.7 because we have a slight limestone concentration. We have also purchased a lot of stony vineyards to minimize the thermal jump at the end of the growing season. We are looking for sugar, aromatic and phenolic ripeness that are closer together. Most of the vineyards are planted on a slope to enhance drainage and the Atlantic winds means that ripeness comes 7 to 10 days later. Less licorice notes, more red rather than dark fruits with higher acidity level and lower alcohol and perhaps less tannic structure, less green tannins because the long vegetative cycle allows us to reach a phenolic ripeness.” There are five lines from the entry level: Romanico, Almirez, Victorino, Alabaster and Teso La Monja. All represent top-class wine as one would expect, though for this writer, the Almirez offers pretty much unbeatable value for money.
