Characteristics of Belondrade y Lurtón

Belondrade and Lurton is a white wine from Rueda prepared by Belondrade & Lurton, a winery founded by Didier Belondrade, which, in 1994, introduced the wine that revolutionized the Spanish white wine market. In 2000, he founded his winery in La Seca (Valladolid).

The climate in this area is continental, characterized by cold and very long winters and short springs with late frosts, followed by hot, dry summers. The changes in temperature between winter and summer are extreme, with a range of 50 degrees, which makes the grapes have an excellent balance between content and acidity. This wine is a varietal Verdejo from vineyards planted about 800 meters above sea level. The vineyard is 30 hectares, divided into 19 plots, and is planted on soils of boulders about 10-60 centimetres deep, with a clay subsoil layer and a deeper layer of limestone. Regarding the development, after the collection and sorting of the grapes takes place, the wine undergoes spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Subsequently, the wine spends 10 months in French oak barrels with its residue and 6 months in bottle before going on sale.

Tasting notes Belondrade y Lurtón

The 2017 vintage has been rated excellent by the regulatory council. A year marked by drought and high temperatures that brought the harvest date forward. Autumn began with temperatures somewhat higher than normal but with a normal rainfall. It was not until late November when temperatures dropped. The beginning of the year arrived with low temperatures and scarce rainfall. Suddenly, temperatures began to rise and accelerated the growth and phenolic development of the vines. At the end of April, there was an intense frost, a severe climatic accident that reduced the harvest by 20%. Once again, May registered very high temperatures that sped up the flowering and consequently brought the harvest date forward, becoming the earliest to date. A vintage where all the aromatic components of the grape have been extracted and the acidity has been preserved, essential to give freshness to the wine.
The 2016 vintage, rated as very good, began with an autumn and winter with high temperatures for these seasons that predicted an acceleration of the vines’ growth cycle. At the beginning of the spring, temperatures fell and rainfall returned to normal figures. This fact was translated in an adjustment as far as budding and flowering dates. At the beginning of June, the heat arrived and stayed all summer until the beginning of the harvest. In general terms, it was a rainy and somewhat warm year. The wines of this vintage are characterised for being aromatic and with a good acidity. Where wines in their youth will preserve their aromatic and fresh features.
The 2015 vintage was rated as very good in a year where no climatic accident occurred. Autumn and winter were somewhat warmer than normal but with normal rainfall. In spring, the growth cycle started a few days in advance, but temperatures and rains continued normally until the beginning of summer. Days before the harvest, temperatures became milder and the end of ripening was very good. The wines of this vintage are characterised by a good balance between maturity and acidity. A good aromatic profile that will age correctly.

Designation of Origin D.O. Rueda

Winery Belondrade y Lurtón

When we talking about the Rueda wines, we are often referring to their white wines. The white wines produced in this region are often made with the Verdejo variety, the main variety of Rueda, planted along the Douro River and its tributaries. Rueda white wines often offer lots of floral notes, scrubland low, delicate aromas and a great acidity given by strong temperature differences between day and night. Apart from white wine, Rueda also produces red wine, often made with the Tempranillo variety.
