Rozas 1er Cru - € 37.60
Rozas 1er Cru comes from several plots, totaling 5 ha, of Garnacha located near the town of Rozas de Puerto Real. Similar to its “little” sibling, La Bruja, Rozas 1er Cru is lithe and winsome example of mountain Garnacha but with a deeper minerality and slightly firmer tannin, hence the Burgundian inspired name.
Commandos like to be inspired by Burgundy. This wine is also a good example of this. In addition to their parcel vineyards that they catalog as Grand Crus, we have a 1er Cru from Rozas de Puerta Real here at an altitude of 900 meters. Again a very nice Garnacha !.
Sensory features: The Comando G Rozas 1er Cru has a bright red colour, sparkling with pink highlights. On the nose a fruit basket full of red fruit, berries, cherries and spiciness. Rather light attack but very complex with an impressive finish. Here is a Garnacha of Anthology!
