Product Description

The red 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 the success of that adventure, which allowed Mr. Carrión, many years later, to start his own wine producing company in his native land.

A trypical Bordeaux blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, this organic and vegan red wine from Penedès is sourced from vines planted in 1968 in Finca Le Havre, a 12-hectare vineyard composed of clay-limestone soils.

The harvest was done by hand. After a meticulous selection, the grapes were destemmed and then this red wine from Penedès was fermented in stainless steel tanks.

After that, Jean Leon Le Havre 2019 went through malolactic fermentation in French and American oak barrels, where it was subsequently aged for 12 months.

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

Decant this Vino de Finca (single vineyard wine) 1 hour before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The wine Jean Leon Le Havre is medium violet with a ruby rim.


Classy and confident, 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.


Showing a bridled power, this wine from the Jean Leon winery 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. Long, elegant finish.

Our personal opinion

Classy and deep, Jean Leon Vinya Le Havre Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 is the perfect match to hearty game dishes.

This is on a par with some top-notch Bordeaux wines. Focused and crisp, mildly oaked, long and rewarding.
