A unique and very exclusive box specially made for Grandcru wines. This Special Edition box contains 3 vintages of the Iconic Cirsion, namely the 2016, 2017 and 2018. All top vintages. This special edition comes in a wooden box in which the 3 wines are also individually packed in a wooden box and the label also mentions Grandcru wines. In addition, the box contains a beautiful booklet with information about the wines, the vintages and the winery. See also a number of photos of this beautiful chest under the tab: Appendix.
The Roda Cirsion is a wine out of the category, obtained by a selection of grape by grape. The essence of Tempranillo. Within the Tempranillo family, there are several clonal selections. In the past, these were often planted together. At Roda, this qualitative difference was noted in the vineyard. From the best vines, the best trusses are followed separately in viticulture. Cirsion is Latin for thistle, which is also the logo of the bodega. Production of 7000 bottles.
The Cirsion is very dark in color. A concentrate of ripe black fruit, blackberry, leather, sun, cocoa, tannic acids, scents that bloom more and more. Cirsion flattens the palette and asks for more. Cases full of juicy fruit tannins guarantee the potential of this nectar. A wine from another planet that has achieved worldly successes in blind tastings over the years. Power coupled with a structure of the greatest wines. The aging potential surprises us every time we taste an older vintage at the bodega.
Next to the picture of the chest you will find the links to Parker and Suckling's assessment of all 3 years. We have little to add to this.
