Tasting two completely different vintages of the same wine is very revealing, and having the 2015 Clio next to the 2014 showed how each of them revealed the character of the vintage. 2015 is a very complete and balanced year, resulting in classic, powerful wines with concentration and balance, and all that is needed to age in bottle. This is a similar blend as the 2014, mostly Monastrell with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for almost two years in French and American oak barrels. The oak is there, but it feels like the fruit is able to integrate it with some more time in bottle. In general, there is a lot more balance and freshness than in the 2014, and the character of the Monastrell is a lot more noticeable than the Cabernet. This should develop nicely in bottle. 50,000 bottles were filled in September 2017.

A thick texture delivers ripe, heady flavors of blackberry, plum pudding and dark chocolate, supported by ripe tannins and balsamic acidity. Big and bold, in the modern style. Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2025.
