How to serve
The origin of Castle Encús is due largely to the impact took place about 2001 when Raul Bobet sought land that could reduce the effects of climate change on the vine in the area of the Pyrenees CatalansMore about the Winery
Cooler than the previous to vintages I tasted last year the 2013 Quest is a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot from vineyards planted in 2003 fermented exclusively in the old stone pools from the 12th century. It matured in brand new French oak barrels for 18 months. The dominant aromas are herbal, very spicy, with the oak in the background and a mixture of different berries and herbs. The palate shows the elegant tannins of the Bordeaux varieties, a clear Atlantic accent (it had some Mediterranean touches in other vintages) with good acidity and a remarkable length. There is austerity and balance here indicating that this is not a showy wine by any means. It has subtle elegance and it should age in bottle for a long time. I like this very much. It would be interested to follow its evolution.View more
