It´s not easy to visit Bodega Ca’n Coleto. Neither the Internet nor traffic signs indicate the way. Only an appointment with Miquel Jaume works. The meeting point will be the gas station before Petra, because from there it´s only a stone’s throw to the vines.
The organic bodega is something like a ‘garage bodega’. Not only because the barrel and bottle storage is behind a garage door of an old ‘casita’, but also because the production size is the same. Miquel is not a typical winemaker. As a teacher of physics much is different. He experiments with the soil, the vines, the pressing methods, and storage in barrels or bottles. Thus, annual productions often stand around for years and are not labelled. “I do not know yet if I might use these wines otherwise,” says Miquel.
In 2013 he was honoured to create a wine for the 300th anniversary of the birth of Petra-born Junípero Serra. He accepted the challenge, went to the stocks and mixed the ‘1713’ from the best vintages. In our blind tasting experts elected it as a winner in the category “value for money”: a truly deserving anniversary wine.
Llàgrimes Blanques Chardonnay 2013
A wine with a fine golden colour. The aromas of ripe windfalls meet the nose. The sweetness of pears and the acid of apples build up a symphony. The maturing in French oak barrels is quickly recognisable. The palate is creamy, soft, and fresh. The noble finish makes it a top-quality wine.
Top-class Chardonnay matured in oak barrels.
Callet, Fogoneu, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignan.
The merger in the glass is of four varieties. The scent offers fine dark chocolate aroma and a slight hint of cinnamon. The palate is spoiled with plum, currant, and ripe fig. Aftertaste is soft and gentle, but persistent. It is a fine cuvée with finesse, produced as a tribute to the memory of Padre Serra. Can Coleto could do more such tributes!
One of our big surprises in blind tastings.
