The 2018 Alión follows the path of the 2016: it is fresh and elegant and from a cooler (more Atlantic) vintage with more rain than the average and a relatively late harvest between September 28th and October 12th. They used 80% new barrels, with up to 10% made of American oak looking to (in their own words) give more sucrosity and sweetness to the wine, as it's a more vertical, tense and elegant expression of Alión. Part of the wine matured in concrete (something they started in 2016), and in 2021 they are experimenting with a 4,000-liter Rousseau foudre, as they want to keep working the texture and freshness. The wine is ripe at 15% alcohol and has a pH of 3.8 and a mellow 4.6 grams of acidity, round and soft. The wine matured until it was bottled in June 2020. The truth is that the wine comes through as subtle, elegant and balanced, with very integrated oak and a nice texture. It's one of the finest vintages for Alión.

Description

1994 was the first vintage of this wine.
The bodega was bought in 1992. Meanwhile, the family has constantly been investing in the cellar and viticultural equipment.
In 2000, stainless steel fermentation tanks were replaced by large oak vats and the oak barrel cellar was equipped with air conditioning; more recently, a new bottling line was also installed.

Vinification

13 months in new oak barrels from Nevers.

Tasting analysis

Alión's philosophy is different from Vega Sicilia’s. Alión makes modern wines, 100% Tempranillo Fino.
After fermentation, the wine is aged for 13 to 14 months is French new oak barrels. Then it stays for 2 years in to bottle.
Its style is close to modern Bordeaux Grands Crus.
Both concentrated and refined, fleshy and elegant.
This great wine is a tribute to the graciousness of Tempranillo.

Storage potential

12 years.

Serving

18°C. Decanting is recommended during the 6 first years after bottling.
