It fermented in stainless steel with neutral yeasts and matured French and American oak barrels, where it also underwent malolactic and 23 months of élevage. Even this shows nice integration of the oak; Miguel Gil told me the wine from 2017 was so powerful and concentrated that it absorbed the oak like never before. And it's true that both wines from 2017 feel a lot less oaky and more balanced, and they have all the ingredients for a long time in bottle. There are some ashy and smoky undertones and a full-bodied palate with fine tannins a chalky texture and some sweet spices, still young and with a long life ahead of it in bottle. - Luis Gutiérrez collapse
