In 1995 we discovered that some vines produced grapes whose flavor was very different to the one of the vines around them. They produced a sensation of fullness, of volume, with notes that were more alike to a wine than to a grape. Two years later, we made our first CIRSION, which we didn’t commercialized, and we tested that with a short aging, the wine reached a level of incredible silkiness and a fruit complexity out of the ordinary. Each vintage we walk through the vineyards looking for this curious natural peculiarity, and that’s how, one in a thousand, the CIRSION grapes are picked.
- Very intense, enormous depth and almost impenetrable. Red flashes with icing tones are projected from the background.
- Very complex, formed by a thousand layers almost indecipherable, but all exciting. There is a light smoked veil, a slight aromatic smoke of the best oak and the finest spices. Blackness in fruits with redness glows. Wet land and rain on the earth. Ripe fruits return in full splendor. A box with fresh spices, cocoa, tobacco and a landscape of violets in the background. Enigmatic: smoke, moist earth. Small black fruits and some red, even flowers.
- Voluminous, fresh, long, endless… Red fruits with very fresh red sparkles. Amazing tannin in such a young wine. Intensity and delicacy, endless freshness, silky and alive, full and caressing. Cocoa is seasoned with a delicate black fruit liqueur and notes of pink pepper.Great vintage of Cirsion, undoubtedly among the best.
