TESO LA MONJA

 

TORO, SPAIN 2014

 

 

Though Spain hasn’t always come first to mind in producing the most sought after, scarce and highly collectible (AKA...expensive) wines in the world, this is all changing with the legendary Pingus, Vega Sicilia’s Unico and the kingpin of them all, our offer today - ‘Teso La Monja’. Competing with the world’s elite, the astronomical quality is not only playing into people’s desire for this wine but the scarcity is driving a frenzy to find this unattainable bottle. With only 60 cases produced compared to the 2,500 cases of Petrus, 500 cases of Screaming Eagle, and 300 cases of Pingus – the quantity to quality to price ratio is astounding. For the most exclusive wine produced from vines planted in 1885, this is a rare pinnacle of perfection. Today, with a limited allocation, we are excited to offer you the first opportunity in the market to secure your bottle of the 2014 vintage before it's gone.

With winemaker Marcos Eguren, considered one of the best winemakers of Spain, the Eguren family has succeeded in producing one of the world’s best wines. The pre-phylloxeric, un-grafted vineyard of Teso La Monja first intrigued the Egurens due to its uniquely high limestone soils. With north facing slopes and loamy soil intermixed with rounded stones to retain heat for the cool nights as well as the deep roots of the old vines, the grapes maintain minerality and purity that leads to powerful yet elegant wines. 100% Tinta de Toro, the grapes are manually harvested and destemmed by hand then fermented in open top wooden vats. After manual crushing, the wine is transferred to the Ovum, a special one-of-kind egg-shaped oak barrel that results in a silky, elegant style. Aged for 24 months in new French oak, this meticulously produced wine is “borderline perfect” (Jeb Dunnuck) and now is easily one of Spain’s most sought after collectibles. Deliciously decadent, the wine will age for decades to come and belongs in any wine lover’s collection. With our 30 bottle allocation, this is one you don’t want to miss!
