Tasting notes Conde de San Cristóbal

The 2015 vintage started with a winter that had good groundwater reserves. The spring was warm and dry until well into the month of June, when there were intense rainfall at the beginning of the blooming. A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn. The harvest was slightly ahead of the usual dates, but the analytical and organoleptic features, and the balance of the berries, were ideal. Thus enabled the harvest to take place at the optimal ripening time. The wines from this vintage, which was classified as excellent, have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential in the mouth, with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
Sight Cherry red with purple hues. Clean and bright. Nose Intense and fresh with aromas of ripened red fruit and smooth mineral and spicy notes. Taste Full-flavoured, wide and unctuous, abundance of red fruit sensations combined with fine roasted notes. Elegant and structured.
Sight Picota red colour, well covered and clean. Nose A deep, complex aroma with lots of fresh, ripe and intense fruit, and touches of minerals and spices. Taste Lots of fruit. Full, fresh, powerful and very elegant. The wood is well integrated.
2010 started with heavy frosts in winter and spring, causing a delay in the commencement of the growth cycle. Above all, this situation marked the vintage with a low yield harvest. This delay of the growth cycle was offset by a slightly mild but good ripening. This fact resulted in wines with greater structure, floral wines with very ripe fruit in compote, a little less acid than the 2009 vintage, but with an excellent quality and with a long life ahead. The low production and the excellent ripening helped classify this vintage as excellent.
Sight Intense and deep ruby red colour. Clean and dense wine. Nose High intensity nose in which the powerful notes of red fruit take center stage along with some good and noble toasted and roasted notes and some spicy hints on an intense and elegant mineral background. Taste Good attack and a good fleshy and tasty mid palate with well balanced tannins and acidity. Its long finish leaves hints of ripe fruit and fine toasted aromas. Pure elegance and complexity.
Sight Intense red cherry red colour with maroon edges. Clean and bright wine with a high layer. Elegant tears and good tearfall. Nose Its abundant notes of very expressive and juicy ripe red and black fruit are mixed with a wide range of creamy spices, noble and elegant toasted and some animal hints. Elegant mineral background with deep balsamic aromas. A deep and complex red wine. Taste Wide attack and long, tasty, powerful and elegant mid palate. This wine has a velvety texture and lots of perfectly balanced fruity and wooden aromas. Well integrated tannins. Its long finish leaves toasted nuances.  A powerful and very elegant wine!
Sight Cherry red color, well covered and clean. Nose Deep and complex aromas. With plenty of fresh fruit, ripe and intense, with mineral and spicy touches. Taste Keeps all the fruit and it shows himself broad, fresh, powerful and elegant. Good integration of wood.
