Details

Fagus is a single varietal Grenache wine made by the Bodegas Aragonesas winery in the Campo de Borja region.

Interestingly, this Spanish red wine is produced from old vines, 40 to 50 years of age, that yield about 1 kilogram of fruit per plant.  

Harvested at their optimal ripening state, the grapes were fermented and then macerated with the skins for over a period of three weeks.

Malolactic fermentation took place in French oak barrels. After that, the wine was aged for a period of 10 months.

Finally, Fagus 2015 was aged for a further months in the cellar prior to its release.

A wine that will delight the Grenache lovers. Decant 1 hour before drinking.

 

Additional Information

Appearance

Fagus has an intense, high cherry-coloured robe with a ruby rim.

Nose

The aromas of this varietal Grenache red wine from Campo de Borja are enticing. Red fruit and jammy wild berries, underpinned by some mineral notions, dim wooden aromas, a dash of spices, cocoa and coffee, and some remembrances of balsam, menthol and sweeties.

Palate

This Grenache by Coto de Hayas is elegant, powerful and well-balanced, with a meaty texture and a very good acidity. Notes of tobacco, chocolate, juicy red fruit and spices. Smooth passage, crunchy tannins and long finish with some delicately bitter and toasted remembrances.

Our personal opinion

Fagus 2015 by Bodegas Aragonesas is an ode to Grenache. Complex, characteristic and seductive.

  1. Fag... oh my!! review by Rozsa on 1/15/2018
    Value

    An excellent wine with, as the previous reviewer said, a name that does it little favor in the English-speakling world. And a real shame it is, because this garnacha is earthy and profound. It is the dream companion of game dishes and the texture is superb.

  2. funny name review by Fagus on 11/8/2017
    Value

    For obvious reasons, the winery should change the name of this wine for the English-speaking countries. Even more so because the wine is a class-act. It is full-bodied, better after every sip and good priced.
