Description

The 2016 is the first vintage from Bodega Vivaltus — a joint venture between the Yllera and Martínez families and Jean-Claude Berrouet, most renowned for his 44 years at Petrus.
La Fleur de Vivaltus is the estate’s second wine and possesses much of the elegance, finesse and balance of the grand vin. Predominantly Tempranillo, with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine sees 11 months in French oak barrels with 20% new oak.
A wonderful floral nose develops in the glass with delicate red fruit appearing on the palate. The tannins are soft and the finish is well-balanced with great acidity and length.
