This wine is the soul of our family and the tribute to our beautiful estate. This is a very special property, absolutely unique. It was bought by the Larrainzar family from the monks of the nearby Monastery of Irache. And it has been home to this family for over 160 years. It has beautiful gardens, full of centenary pines, fountains and ponds, surrounded by boxwood and flowers that embellish even more the magic of this house. Therefore, we wanted to reflect that special environment, embodying on the labels the beauty of French-style gardens.

This is the first brand we ever produced and the one we feel better represents our style, always showing elegance and harmony. It is a wine that is carefully crafted, with limited production, and we only make it when the vintage is outstanding. That is why it is not bottled every year and this 2014 vintage comes after having decided not to make it in the 2012 and 2013 vintages.

After the harvest by hand, the different varieties and plots were vinified and aged in barrels separately. Only then did we decide on the final blend, always looking for the prominence of the fruit in balance with the toasted notes. It is our most international blend, where we focus on the French Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon varietals, which are so well adapted to our soil and climate. But at the same time it is a terroir wine from our region, because it is blended with our Tempranillo, which gives it more complexity and a unique Navarra character. It is, indeed, a complex blending exercise for you to enjoy.

It shows an attractive full cherry red color. On the nose, it presents good intensity, very frank and pleasant aromas. All its notes are well combined and we can find hints of black plum, berries, cedar, burnt wood, scrubland, dry hay … each turn of the glass reveals a new aroma. On the palate it shows the signature of the winery: complexity and elegance. Tasty, fresh, without edges, it fills the mouth but is not a heavy wine at all. It is very well polished at the end and leaves a long aftertaste. Its good acidity stands out, which ensures a good and long life in the bottle.
