More information

Jean Leon's  3055 Merlot Petit Verdot is a wonderful red wine cuvée from the Spanish DO Penedès region. 

With a deep cherry red colour and violet highlights, this wine shimmers in the glass. The nose is pampered by a fruity aroma of candied red fruits - cherries, raspberries, currants and strawberries - with fine roasted and spiced notes. On the palate, this Spanish red wine is soft and at the same time powerful with a wonderful fruit fullness and spiciness. The gently ripened tannins accompany you to the wonderfully long finale. 

The 3055 refers to Jean Leon's time in America as a taxi driver - his New York taxi license had the number 3055. 

Vinification of Merlot Petit Verdot 3055 Jean Leon

At the

beginning of September, Merlot and Petit Verdot grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness and immediately brought to Jean Leon's winery. In the stainless steel tank, the mash is fermented at a controlled temperature for 3 weeks. Thereafter, the mashing life is 15 days. This removes the wonderful colour, aromas and gentle tannin structure from the berry skins. This red wine is then carefully stripped off and rests for a total of 5 months in French oak barriques. For a short period, this wine rests even further on the bottle before it leaves the Jean Leon winery. 

Food recommendation for the Jean Leon 3055 Merlot Petit Verdot

Enjoy this dry red wine with meat fresh from the grill with crisp salads, roasted pork tenderloin in creamy sauce or with sausage and ham specialities and medium-spicy soft cheese.
