Quinta do Vale Meao 2015

Vale Meão Red is very concentrated in color. Deep and complex nose with lots of aromatic nuances, yet Maintaining the balance between Them. In the mouth it is vibrant, in a set of great elegance, showing an excellent integration of the wood, the surprisingly large variety of flavors, and a very long aftertaste

The Quinta do Vale do Meão is the flagship of one of Portugal's best wineries. The wine is a blend of the original Portuguese grapes Touriga Nacional 58%, 35% Touriga Franca, 5% and 2% Tinta Barroca Tinta Roriz which (using 80% new, overife for the 2nd time) for 18 months in French barriques. The grapes come from vines of 45-50 years old. This is a wine that has great balance and very elegant. Nothing is too much or too overbearing and the Wine Advocate speaks also about the "wow moment" at Quinta do Vale do Meão. This wine is simply irresistible. The wine has a complex nose with many aromatic nuances without overlapping with another odor. Red fruit, leather, espresso, hint of tobacco and spices we smell in the nose. The wine is medium to full bodied with an excellent (read: not dominant) integration of wood. Now everyone goes to compare this wine is a bit lame but it's best to compare it with a good, elegant Burgundian who freshness and elegance can let go together. The Meao 2011 was in the Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2014 of the world's best wines in the top 3!

Very concentrated in color, great depth in the nose, complex, with many aromatic notes, is a balanced wine, no aroma overlaps another. It was aged in French oak barrels. Vibrant and of great elegance, it presents an excellent integration of the wood and surprises by the great variety of flavors. Very long finish.

Quinta do Vale Meão 2011 é um Douro que vale Ouro.
Full-bodied wine, which after a short rest after decanting allows you to explore all your wonderful secret. Strong color, woody, excellent wine.
