Characteristics of Dominio de Es La Mata

Dominio de Es La Mata is a red wine produced in 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 Viñas La Mata is a wine made with Tinto Fino and 1.5% of Albillo, in a coplantation vineyard of 7 hectares located in Valle de la Mata, in the municipality of Atauta. A century-old vineyard made up of over 300 small plots, located at 980 metres of altitude and planted on very diverse soils with prevailing clays.

After the manual harvest, 70% of the grapes bunches were destemmed in the winery. The fermentation takes place in a wooden vat with a 21-day maceration. The ageing is performed in two new Burgundian barrels made of French oak.

Only around 600 bottles will be released.

Tasting notes Dominio de Es La Mata

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.”
After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards. The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
