Comando G Las Iruelas El Tiemblo 2020

Comando G Las Iruelas El Tiemblo 2020

Wine Advocate: 98 Points
Like the El Reventón the 2020 Las Iruelas is now a wine from Comando G and no longer a Dani Landi wine whose personal project came to an end with the 2019 vintage. As with El Reventón this is still exactly the same wine from the same vineyard in El Tiemblo on slate soils produced in exactly the same way matured 50% in oak foudre and the other 50% in concrete. Since 2016 they harvest three times here as they have three terroir units that behave quite differently. Since then the wine has gained in precision subtleness and elegance combining more Mediterranean and Atlantic characteristics: floral aromatic herbal honey resin a sensation of sweetness without being sweet ethereal but with lots of energy grip depth and complexity. It's among the finest vintages for this wine and the vineyard is slowly revealing itself as one of their finest.3401 bottles and 100 magnums produced. It was bottled a little later than the others in May 2022.

Comando G what to say about Comando G... They have been downsizing their operation and fine-tuning their wines that are expressive of their sites and their vintages achieving amazing precision. After years of working with old vines they started planting vines for the long haul ("We want these new vineyards to last 200 years not 80 years") and focusing on three locations: Navatalgordo Villanueva de Ávila and Rozas de Puerto Real. Today there are some 70000-80000 bottles in total but from 2023 onward there will be no more than 50000. These are highly sought-after wines that deliver world-class Garnacha. Unfortunately the prices are escalating.
