The Comando G. Collective, formed by a group of talented Spanish winemakers, was born of a clear goal: to produce the best Grenache wine in the world. Of the many cuvées produced by the collective, this one could well claim the title. Spread over the slopes of the Sierra de Gretos region, the plots enjoy a cool climate, at an altitude of between 850 and 1,100 metres, and granitic soils. These properties confer both an intense flavour and freshness to the wine.
The vines are cultivated according to biodynamic principles, methods close to the hearts of the winemakers, who are eager to express the aromatic intensity of Grenache as naturally as possible. The berries are hand-picked from old vines (the oldest is 80 years old) and vinified with very little intervention.
On tasting, the wine opens with a profusion of ripe red and black fruits, enhanced by notes of sweet and peppery spices. Freshness dominates the light, mellow tannins, balancing out a powerful finish featuring roasted flavours.
Daniel Landi and Fernando Garcia are childhood friends. They decided to crzeate Comando G in 2008 in the mountainous Sierra de Gredos region, not far from Madrid. The went on the search for vineyards planted in the most difficult, remote areas. Garnacha (Grenache) is their grape variety of choice, and their ambition is to make wines which rival the elegance and finesse of a Burgundian Pinot Noir or a Syrah from Hermitage. The 10-hectare domain is entirely biodynamic, and the vines aged 50 to 80 years, planted between 850 and 1,200 metres of altitude on soils of sand, granite, ardoise and quartz. The combination of well-draining soils, high altitude and a clement micro-climate guarantees a long growing season, wines which are not too high in alcohol and extremely refined.
