Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Rozas 1er Cru is a red wine produced by the winery Comando G in Sierra de Gredos, D.O. Vinos de Madrid.

 

Comando G is a project created to recover old abandoned vines of the Grenache variety. This is why it is called Comando G, "G" for Grenache.

They currently manage 3 hectares of vineyards, distributed between the municipalities of Cadalso de los Vidrios and Rozas de Puerto Real. They have granite-based soils and are located between 900 and 1000 metres of altitude. 

Comando G's agriculture is based on the principles of biodynamics, proving to have utmost respect for the land they cultivate. Their main objective is to produce wines that reflect the identity of the terroir of Sierra de Gredos. 

 

Rozas 1er Cru is a wine made from Grenache that comes from 50 and 60-year-old vines that are planted on granite-based soils at 900 metres of altitude, in Las Umbrías.

Harvest is performed by hand. It ferments with local yeasts in French oak vats, with soft macerations, whole grapes and their stems, avoiding aggressive processes. Maceration takes approximately 60 days. This wine is aged for 12 months in 500-litre French oak barrels.


Rozas 1er Cru is a juicy, deep and mineral wine. An intense but delicate Grenache that reflects the character of this variety in the area.

For many, Comando G will sound like the name of a cartoons series that was broadcast on Spanish television in the late seventies and early eighties. But in the wine world, Comando G has a very precise interpretation: "G" for Grenache and "G" for Gredos. A project that began thanks to the passion of three young wine enthusiasts whose goal was to produce the best Grenache wine. And they managed to surprise everyone with wines of a marked personality, traditional and modern at the same time, with slight colour, hardly any wood, good acidity. With a fluid texture but persistent, fine tannins, tasty and elegant. Their idea is to make quality wines that reflect the area, the soils, the vintage and the variety.
Although Madrid wines (Vinos de Madrid) are still relatively unknown among consumers, the region has enjoyed a prestige and historical past that dates back to the twelfth century. Current wines in the region however are far from the old wines of San Martín de Valdeiglesias, who in their golden years were perceived as some of the most prestigious wines in Spain. Today, the Vinos of Madrid face a highly competitive wine scene, but the effort local wineries regain this old prestige is evident in the quality of the wines being produced.
