El Grand Bonhomme Cuvee Especial Tempranillo

El Grand Bonhomme Cuvee Especial Tempranillo 2012

Castilla-Leon, SpainThis is a giant, "El Grand", I guess, tempranillo from the province of Zamora with a somewhat lifted, near volatile nose, so give it some tine in a decanter to blow off some steam. The tempranillo spends 16 months in one and two-year-old French barrels. Think big, with rich tannins and jammy, black cherry, licorice fruit. Canadian Nathalie Bonhomme makes the wine in a modern style, all the while respecting the tradition of old vines and vineyards. This one needs time, three to five years to reach its peak.Tasted: 08 January 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 31.50 BCLS Producer: Les Vins BonhommeDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
