“La Grande Dame”, the jewel in the Mas d’en Gil crown. A white wine for drinking after reds. Complex, with deep nuances and a lingering finish. This wine starts to get interesting in its fourth year.
Made using two Garnatxa Blanca (White Grenache) vineyards and two others planted with Macabeu (Viura) before 1945 on one of the most heterogenous terroirs of the estate. The vineyards are surrounded by pine trees and wild areas.
White Grenache and Viura.
Age of the Vines:
Vines planted between 1941 and 1945.
Llicorelles, (different types of slate), river pebbles and sand.
Six months in 500 Litre barrels.
Bottle aged for 18 months approximately.
Great with hot seafood dishes such as lobster and king prawns. It also combines well with grilled white fish (plaice, gilthead and sea bass). It also works well with white meat such as roasted chicken cocotte and also with creamy cheese such as Torta del Casar..
This wine should be served at around 12 °C in a Burgundy style wine glass. The wine should also be decanted in order to fully enjoy its aromas and taste.
