Comando G 'Villanueva', Sierra de Gredos, Spain 2022

Tucked away amongst rugged peaks of the Sierra de Gredos, just a short trip from Madrid, Daniel Jimenez-Landi & Fernando Garcia have been quietly crafting some of Spain's best wines since 2008 under the name Comando G. At this point, the secret is out, but production remains minuscule. From the beginning, the duo has adopted a Burgundian philosophy regarding their wine production style.

Pairing: Spiced Fish Stew, beef 

Grape: Grenache 

Soil: Sandy granite (900 meters altitude)

Viticulture: Practicing organic and biodynamic

There is a new village red from the village of Villanueva de Ávila, the village where they have established their operations. For them, the 2022 Villanueva is the more complete wine, subtle and delicate but with energy and power. It comes from different vineyards in the village, some owned, some grapes purchased, grown at an average altitude of 1,000 meters. It fermented with full clusters and had a long maceration (but not as long as in cooler years) of 35 to 40 days, and part of the wine fermented pressed without skins. It fermented and matured in an oak vat. No sulfur was added at any point of the vinification or élevage, and only a small quantity was added at bottling time. It has a moderate 13% alcohol and a very subtle, elegant and nuanced nose, with ethereal notes of flowers, herbs and spice (nutmeg!). It has a medium-bodied palate, nicely textured, with very fine silty tannins and a long, tasty finish. It's austere beyond the character of the year (you'd never say it's a 2022...) with very good aging potential. 2,798 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2023.
