Luis XIV’ Fondillón Elad Superior a 25 años DOP Alicante (50cl)
Light brown colour and orange brick rim, with medium intensity. On the nose, the warm aromas of dried fruits (hazelnuts, toasted marcona almonds) and very old noble wood stand out. In the mouth, it is almost dry, friendly and very enveloping. Its aromas of hazelnuts, cinnamon and dried figs are combined with the creamy toasts of centenary oak. Long and clean finish.
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.
