Ce vin représente la pierre fondatrice de Javier Ochoa et la philosophie sur laquelle nous nous basons, à la fois dans le vignoble et dans la cave. Soucieux de l'environnement, il est le chouchou de notre maison. C'est le premier vin de la cave à entamer la conversion au bio pour obtenir la certification millésime 2018.

Javier a créé Ochoa Crianza Tempranillo en 1987, pariant sur ce cépage privilégié, capable de produire à lui seul un vin d'excellente qualité. A cette époque, il n'était pas courant de communiquer le cépage sur l'étiquette ; nous l'avons fait et ce fut une mini révolution afin d'informer le consommateur de ce qu'il appréciait.

Cépage : 100 % Grenache de la finca Santa Cruz
Terroir : sous-sol argilo calcaire de grande complexité.
Vinification : Vieilli pendant 12 mois en fûts de chêne américain de 225 l où le vin acquiert sa propre finesse de bois et se bonifie ensuite en bouteille où il poursuit son évolution naturelle et progressive. Il a des tanins doux et un délicieux arôme de fruits rouges.
Accord : tapas, charcuterie / fromage, amuse-gueules et collations.

What is an author wine?

This can be so diverse depending on the personality of their sire, that it is easier to define what it is not. An author wine is anything but a standard, stereotypical wine, made to please as many people as possible. It is therefore rarely produced in millions of copies, copying itself from vintage in vintage.

An author wine is therefore a wine that does not look like that of the neighbor. Which from year to year will evolve according to the vagaries of the weather and the mood of the author - the two that can be linked. Because the author does not rely on market studies to carry out his boat. He makes his wine as he feels, as he likes, as he can, sometimes ... and too bad if he does not please everyone.

This is why author wines are sometimes classified as "table wine" or "France wine". Because the winemaker did not plan the authorized grape variety*, makes the assembly or vinification recommended in the name **. He is often a bit rebellious, our author. But that is why we like it! ... That said, author's wines are not systematically marginal: they are present in most of the appellations, and can be part of the elite of these this***. Because they are not content to have personality: they are good, in addition! With in general aDegree of TorchabilityVery high: we never tire of it at the end of the first sip.

As author's wines are not chaptalized, levied, hacked ... They can have very different profiles depending on the vintage. It is up to us (resellers and consumers) to accept them as they are, and to remain faithful to the producers, because they need us to continue their activity.


* For example, theTouriga Nacionalin the Minervois, or theSyrahIn Forez ribs. They are crazy, these authors!

** Some winegrowers dare to produceSweety with Mourvèdre or oneNatural sparkling with Pineau d'Aunis

*** Like those of Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura or Zind-Humbercht in Alsace
