Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon en Merlot.
Viña Sastre Pesus heeft 24 maanden op Frans eiken gerijpt.
Excellente prijs- kwaliteitverhouding.
Viña Sastre Pesus is een elegante top wijn. Fruit (zwarte kersen, zwarte bessen), specerijen, zoethout, mineralen, prachtige tannines en een geweldige afdronk.
Goede combinatie met rood vlees, wild, boeuf bourguignon, tournedos, paté, jamón en harde kazen.
Op dronk, maar kan zich tenminste tot 2025 nog verder ontwikkelen.
Optimale drinktemperatuur Vina Sastre Pesus: 16°C.
The Wine Advocate:
"The flagship 2009 Vina Sastre Pesus comes from some of the oldest Tempranillo vines, some of them planted in 1905. After a rigorous sorting the wine is aged in 200% new oak, the first for malolactic fermentation and then for maturation, before being bottled in glass so thick, it could survive an assassination. Having been introduced personally to the vines, I really wanted to find all that oak marrying in blissful harmony with the precocious fruit, yet there is no doubt that all that can be discerned aromatically is the wood. The palate is medium rather than full-bodied and is very fleshy and caressing in the mouth. Here, I do find that the oak is assimilated with the fruit and does not impinge too much. It has a very ripe, quite sweet sorbet-like finish, with a dab of alcohol at the back of the throat that is not particularly disturbing. It is a decadent, powerful, intense experience and it needs a serious amount of aging. For those lazy enough to think I am dogmatic about a lot of new oak – this is a deliriously delicious wine. But it needs 8- 10 years to fully absorb the wood. I wonder what it would be like with less oak? Drink 2018-2030."
