PostHeaderIcon Maduresa 2006

The wine we opened on Christmas Day is one of the much-discussed in gourmet guides, wine lists, friends, ... but shared one of the most important meal of the year and with the proper pairing, we were quite surprised so many different palates.

This came from the western interior of the province of Valencia, already stands in its presentation, the bottle has a label turn austere but evocative. Size bottle wine standar almost black and white label on which we appreciate a bunch of grapes that is stamped on it, the product suggests we have a different wine or at least different in its presentation.

Maduresa is a wine made in the cellar El Celler del Roure, authored by Pablo Calatayud, wine is a varietal that combines native Mandó recovered and Monastrell grapes and others such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot, all grown at the foot of the Serra Grossa next to one of the most important archaeological monuments of the Iberian civilization: Les Alcusses.

Returning to come tell you that we opened 20 minutes before serving, at a temperature between 14 º and 16 º C degrees, the dilemma was served in glasses, wide-mouth or not, Bordeaux or Burgundy, in the end we opted for a wide-mouth since we assume that the wine would benefit from increased oxygenation, but lose a little nose during the meal.

The wine was presented with a deep cherry red color with orange trim, the result of long aging, robe, shiny and satiny. The nose was quite a sight to find aromas of black fruits such as prunes, figs, blueberries and blackberries but even very mature, shaking the cup is accentuated them out while secondary and tertiary aromas and roasted coffee, black pepper, graphite and very different spices.

Once in the mouth was very silky and soft, wrapped around the palate, inviting a special cream to keep tasting the wine, the tannin was at its height, its role was to clean his mouth after the succulent 'putxero amb pilota' (beef and pork sausage very cooked) we were eating and turn left mouth and tongue soft creamy.

As you breathe through your nose after you swallow, even these were becoming ripe fruits and spicy memories of the wine in question. Finally a wine of good quality and good price, a wine warm, very Mediterranean and perfect for table spoon and cloth we usually prepare this holiday season and perfect for cold are accompanying us in this month of December 2010.
