Dehesa La Granja trend setting in Montreal
Véronique Rivest, one of Canada’s most famous sommeliers and winner of the Best Sommelier in the World Award 2013 recommended Dehesa La Granja 2008 calling it an impressive wine to enjoy in autumn. The critique is published by Canadian newspaper, La Presse, founded in 1884 and regarded as one of the most important French-Canadian dailies.
“A very traditional wine, with a rustic character – true expression of the Tempranillo grape. After ageing for 24 months in American oak and a year in the bottle, this wine boasts complexity and depth, without giving way to the aromas of the wood. Cherry and redcurrant aromas, raspberry liquor, animal characteristics – flesh and hide – and hints of spices such as anise. Very round and fresh in the mouth with smooth tannins. An impressive wine for autumn which should be decanted and served with lamb. It can be stored for up to 8 to 10 more years”.
