Having made Trophy-winning wines at other people’s cellars for 25 years, in 2006 our head winemaker, Jean-Marc Sauboua, decided to buy his own winery. Despite being Bordeaux-born, he chose Rioja (his mother is from Spain), with the sole aim of making a Grand Cru style of wine. He brought in another top player, Hector Gomez, as winemaker, and since then they have won well over 260 Golds, ‘Rioja of the Year’ in 2017, and many more awards besides. They work closely with growers, whose vineyards are the highest in the region, to obtain superb quality grapes. High altitude adds elegance and intensity to the fruit, while ageing mostly in French oak lends a more subtle layer of toasty vanilla. Decant early before serving with lamb, pork or paella.
