Marqués de Cáceres Gaudium 2015
Exceptional red wine produced exclusively in excellent vintages from very old vineyards. These small parcels of old vineyards are aged 70 years plus, including some pre-phylloxera vineyards which are over 100 years producing delicious elegance. The grapes fall under gravity into small tanks where the winemaking process is performed with expertise. The greatest care is taken during vilification to extract the singular character of each vineyard, after which this wine is aged in new French oak barrels for 18 months. The ageing proses is completed with 24 months minimum in bottle during which Gaudium acquires its elegant style. An exquisite wine!
The Gaudium Reserva made of 100% Tempranillo has a dark, almost impenetrable layer. Complex on the nose combining in a symphony the uniqueness of the small plots revealing the richness of balsamic, black cherry and distinctive toasted notes. Its artisanal fermentation results in polished tannins where intense flavours of wild fruit, coffee and dark chocolate are integrated. In the mouth the wine is well structured, revealing the delicious elegance of an exquisite wine.
