AVAILABILITY: 5 in stock

This wine is a dark cherry colour, lively with few signs of evolution. High aromatic intensity in which the toasted and spicy aromas from the French oak predominate, together with ripe, dark-berried fruit. In the mouth, it is fresh and smooth with soft, polished tannins in which the wood is not too intrusive. Complex and elegant with a long, balanced finish.

Serve with rare steak, game casseroles, BBQ lamb shanks or cured meats with mature cheeses.

Barón de Chirel was first made in 1986 as the result of experimental production using a selection of grapes from very old vines, between 80 and 110 years’ old, with a very low yield and high quality. The wine is then aged for 20 months in Bordeaux style barrels made of French oak. Finally, the wine spends a minimum time of a year rounding off in the bottle before being released for sale.
