Product Description
Details

The wine Jean Leon Vinya Le Havre was named after the French port from which the Spaniard Ceferino Carrión, later known as Jean Leon, left Europe as a stowaway on a cargo ship to pursue the American Dream.

This excellent Spanish red wine celebrates to the success of that adventure. A success that allowed Mr. Carrión, many years later, to found his own wine producing company.

A trypical Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, this organic red wine is made from grapevines planted in 1968 in a Finca Le Havre, a 16-hectare estate composed of clay-limestone soils.

The harvest of this Vino de Finca (single estate wine) took place during the second half of October. After a meticulous selection, the grapes were destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

After that, Jean Leon Le Havre 2013 from Penedès underwent malolactic fermentation in French and American oak barrels, where it was subsequently aged for 12 months.

Finally, this Reserva red wine from Penedès was aged for 24 months in the cellar prior to its commercial release.

32,800 bottles produced.

Appearance

The wine Jean Leon Le Havre has a very bright, medium garnet-coloured robe with a ruby rim.

Nose

Classy and collected, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc has a deep spicy background. As the wine aerates, aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants appear, combined with some toasted nuances and suggestions of raisins, roasted green bell pepper, menthol and coffee. This organic red wine certainly has a rich nose.

Palate

Showing a bridled power, this estate red wine of Jean Leon is bold and precise, with smooth tannins, a great definition and a crisp acidity. Moroccan leather, ripe red fruit, Eastern spices, some herbal and mineral nuances, and some intimations of smoke and toast. This Penedès organic wine has a very long, elegant finish.

Our personal opinion

Classy and deep, Jean Leon Vinya Le Havre Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 is the perfect match to hearty game dishes.
