Luis XIV’ Fondillón Elad Superior a 50 años DOP Alicante (50cl)
Mahogany colour and orange tile rim, with medium layer and great density. On the nose, it has a very deep aroma of old wood, black tea and carob. In the mouth, it has a sweet entry balanced by a very high acidity. Its aromas are long, almost eternal and very intense. It tastes like old mahogany, a very old barrel and bygone times.
The ‘Luis XIV’ Fondillón is the product of an exciting partnership created by David Carbonell founder of Vins del Comtat and the current descendants of two, old winemaking families: Ferrero Valdés and Ballester, located in Cañana, in the Alto Vinalopó region of Alicante. The Colección de Toneles Centenarios (CTC) is a unique and fascinating story originating from a surprise discovery of an extraordinary treasure: “a Fondillón barrel room, asleep for 60 years” which contained 25 barrels of Fondillón dating from the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. The CTC partnership came to fruition based on a mutual philosophy to preserve these ‘fondillones’ as an important part of their regional heritage and to breathe new life into the historic tradition of Fondillón wines and winemaking of this Mediterranean region.
