Characteristics of Dominio de Es La Diva

Dominio de Es La Diva is a red wine produced in the D.O. Ribera del Duero by the winery Dominio de Es, in San Esteban de Gormaz, Soria.

After 10 years as a technical manager in Dominio de Atauta, Bertrand Sourdais starts this personal project in Ribeira del Duero. Dominio de Es is formed by 4 vineyard areas (La Mata, Llanos del Almendro, Camino Olmillos and Valdegatiles) with pre-phylloxera vines on sandy soils, located at approximately 1000 metres of altitude.

The vineyards are cultivated biodynamically and, in the winery, they aim for a friendly and steady production, without the tannins that Bertrand Sourdais reflected in their wines some years ago. Ageing for long periods in large used barrels to give value to the finesse of the terroir where these fabulous wines are made.

 

Dominio de Es La Diva is made from vines that come from a small plot, Valdeigatiles in Atauta (Soria). This vineyard is facing north, where Tinto Fino is mixed with white Albillo (14%) on sandy soils with a pure chalk substrate.

They use a quarter of full bunches (the white variety is divided) that ferments in an open 400-litre French oak barrel with local yeasts. Before the fermentation ends, they press the cap. Then, the fermentation ends without skins nor stems. Wine is aged for 20 months in double-use Romanée Conti wine barrels (Burgundy).

A stylish, precise wine. A Grand Cru from Ribera del Duero.

Tasting notes Dominio de Es La Diva

2017 has been defined by widespread frosts in the north of Spain, but Ribera del Duero Soriana has been saved by the usual late budding of the vineyard. The winter was dry and not too cold, which was followed by a somewhat atypical spring with slightly higher temperatures and little rain. Budding was staggered, and flowering was rapid and quite early. A summer heat wave at the end of June caused a water shortage and slowed down the growth of the grapes. Then, in July, temperatures dropped and it rained, which helped rehydrate the grapes. The veraison happened slowly, due to cool temperatures at night. The grapes were harvested between September 21 and 23. According to Bertrand Sourdais: “The wines combine intensity and ripeness with an organic quality due to minimum cold temperatures and summer rains. A precise vintage thanks to extremely fast flowering.”
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.
Dominio de Es La Diva 2014 is an exuberant, honest, elegant and calm wine. A vintage with a great ageing potential. Explosive on the nose, with ripe red and black fruit, very elegant toasted notes on a mineral background. In the mouth, it is voluminous and ample, with a lot of structure and a fresh and very long finish.
