94/100 James Suckling point


until Septembre 30, 2020
i.e. €7.33/l


Origin: Spain

Taste:

On the nose, at first red fruit aromas are revealed, which are then followed by toasted, smoked, caramelised, jammy and nutty notes.
On the palate, the attack is fresh and buttery with a long, balanced finish with ripe fruit. Wonderful notes of plums and cherries, sustained by deeply satisfying tannins, ensure that this is a highly enjoyable, luscious wine.

Pairs well with:

  • Grilled entrecôte steak
  • Game
  • Fine charcuterie, smoked and dried meats
  • Hard cheese

Value for money:  

Our wine experts’ rating: 18,5/20


Jean-Marc Hubertus, our expert, talk about this wine:

Keen to promote biodiversity in its vineyard, the wines which the estate produces are 100% organic and 100% vegan. The vineyard is located over 80 kilometres south east of the city of VALENCIA, in Moixent, at an altitude of almost 530 metres.

The Pago Casa Gran estate works hard to produce honest, well-balanced wines which are both fresh and complex, using modern gravity-flow techniques in its cellars and fine-quality aging of the wines in barrels. A new vision of environmentally-sound viticulture producing high-quality wines in Spain.
