Guimaro ‘Finca Meixeman’ Single Vineyard Mencia

At 400-450 metres’ altitude, Miexeman is a 1.2 hectare plot of 70+ year old organically grown vines from a ‘two-faced’ vineyard: the larger part is relatively coolly oriented slate facing south-east, or naciamente (to the rising sun); the other is iron-rich granitic soil in a poniente (setting sun) south- west facing. Both sections are streaked with quartz, iron and mica.

Meixeman was first bottled as a single vineyard in 2006. “Pedro, what does the name Meixeman mean?” “No idea, Scott.

Designation: Sangreal

Vineyard
The Sangreal vineyard was planted in 1994, making it our oldest vineyard. It lies on a north-facing slope and the soil composition is bluestone and overlaying limestone, with red ironstone colouring the surface. This is unlike our other vineyards, which are mostly black volcanic soil with heavy amounts of limestone on the surface. The vine rows run north-south, receiving full sun exposure throughout the day, resulting in more perfumed, prettier wines. This is always the first vineyard to be harvested. The clones used in Sangreal are 114 and 115, which we believe have mutated over time to become the ‘Sangreal clone’, now within its own microclimate.

Italian for single vineyard. Each Contrada will have its own name. Plural = Contrade. Etna's Contrade have certainly raised knowledge of the term.

The term is used throughout Italy.Contrade names you might have heard of from Etna: Rampante, Guardiola, Feudo di Mezzo, Acuria, Sciaronuova, Calderara, and Rivaggi.

"Restaurants._ The best as well as the most expensive restaurants are those on the boulevards and in the Palais Royal. Here a good dinner costs from 10 to 15 fr., exclusive of wine. Restaurants of high reputation are- Grand Vefour, 79 Galerie Beaujolais, Palais Royal; Maison Doree, 20...; Bignon, 32 Avenue de l'Opera."

Not to be confused with the previous Martell L'Or, L'Or de Jean Martell is packaged in a remarkable crystal decanter and contains the company's finest stock of old Borderies and Grande Champagne.
"For me, this is the quintessence of Martell cognacs. With the body of the Borderies and the structure of Grande Champagne, L’OR offers a perfect balance between rich aromas and power. It is blended using over 400 extremely rare eaux-de-vie, yet it remains a model of harmony and the perfect expression of this cognac house's philosophy.", Christophe Valtaud, Cellar Master

Wood Aged Ports

Wood Aged Ports are those which age entirely in cask or vat and are ready to drink when they are bottled.

First of all there are the fruity and full bodied Ports, such as Fonseca Ruby, which usually age in vat for between 2 to 3 years. Reserve Ports, such as Fonseca Bin 27 and Terra Prima are of superior quality and age for a little longer. Finally, there is Late Bottled Vintage which remains in vat for between four to six years.

The large volume of wine means that the wood contact is relatively limited. As a result, the Port becomes smooth and round but retains its deep red colour, youthful vigour and intense fruity character.
