Very dark Bordeaux-red with purple tints. very expressive with aromas of ripe wild fruits (blackberry, blackcurrant) and light oaky aromas (cocoa, vanilla). Very round on entry with a lovely rich character, silky tannins and good concentration. The subtly oaky finish reveals fruity and spicy aromas.

Harvesting is carried out by hand and the grapes transported in crates of 20kg. Vinification takes place in stainless steel vats with cold pre-fermentation maceration and a long vatting period of over 4 weeks. The wine is partly aged in stainless steel and partly in French oak barrels for 3-6 months.

Established in 2005, dominio del soto is based in sotillo de la ribera, at the heart of the Ribera del Duero wine region in the province of burgos in Spain. With 16 hectares of organically grown vineyards, Dominio del Soto combines terroir and knowhow in a traditional manner to create and barrel-age its roble and crianza wines.

Spanish wines have always been a favourite of Michel Chapoutier. It was therefore of no surprise that the company should look for a domain there. At the heart of the Douro Valley, Dominio Del Soto is one of the rare Spanish crops derived from organic farming methods applying ancestral practices. Mathilde Chapoutier firmly believes in the potential of this terroir and encouraged the wine company to invest in the vineyard. A few years on, and M. CHAPOUTIER has applied the necessary know-how, creating highly concentrated, well-rounded, fruity wines. The domain is currently being converted to biodynamic practices.

Revealed by Mathilde Chapoutier Sélection, the Dominio del Soto wines pair perfectly with both casual meals and fine dinners.

The vineyards are planted on old high-lying terraces (850-900m above sea level). Deep clay-limestone and even marly-limestone soil in certain plots with some pockets of sand. The vines benefit from a mediterranean climate, tending to continental, characterized by harsh winters and hot, dry summers with a significant variation between day and night-time temperatures.

It goes well with Mediterranean appetisers: a platter of pata negra, tapas and grills.
