Product Description

Produced by the Jean Leon winery, the wine Jean Leon Vinya Gigi is a celebrated Spanish white wine from DO Penedès.

A varietal Chardonnay named after Jean leon's daughter, Gigi, this Vino de Finca (single vineyard wine) is made from grapevines planted in 1965. The 5-hectare vineyard has a very compact soil that makes it difficult for water to soak through and reach the roots.

Thus, the vines suffer from a healthy hydric stress that helps them to concentrate colour and aromas.

Harvested by hand and carefully selected, the grapes were destemmed and gently crushed. After that, a portion of this vegan wine was fermented in French oak barrels, and the rest in 2,000-litre vats and egg-shaped concrete diposits. Then the wine Jean Leon Vinya Gigi 2022 was aged on lees for 6 months. 

After that, this organic white wine was aged for a further 6 months in the bottle.

Interestingly, this was the first white wine fermented and aged in oak produced in Spain.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The white wine Jean Leon Chardonnay Vinya Gigi is deep straw with golden tinges.


This organic Chardonnay is intense and rather complex. Notes of pineapple, papaya, banana and vanilla, combined with some hints of spices, citrus, toasted bread and white flowers.


Elegant and poised, this white wine of bodega Jean Leon has a fresh passage and a layered, rich texture. Round and flavourful, packed with tropical flavours, creamy remembrances, and spicy hints, enlivened by a very good acidity and a good balance. Long, complex finish.

Our personal opinion

The age-worthy white wine Jean Leon Vinya Gigi 2022 will pair wonderfully with oily fishes and white meat.
