DON MIGUEL COMENGE
Don Miguel Comenge Reserva is a unique wine we make only in exceptional years. The secret lies in the exceptional vineyard it comes from: its soil, its orientation, the climate and low-level production.
The production method is simple yet unique: careful harvesting in boxes, meticulous selection of the racemes and total destemming by hand at the grape selection table. Don Miguel Comenge ferments in a cement tank with our own yeast and is aged in 100% new French oak barrels.

Origin of the grape
Pago de Hontanillas
Vineyard of only 2.7 hectares planted at 870 metres above sea level in Pesquera de Duero, facing south. Sensational, predominantly limestone soil, where the Tempranillo grape acquires a distinct personality and bouquet.
Pago de la Nava
Cabernet Sauvignon variety planted next to the River Douro, which creates a microclimate that helps the variety ripen. Clayey soil, with an abundance of boulders in deeper layers. The wine has excellent acidity and an intense colour.
Black cherry in the glass with very good depth.
It has a very deep nose, which gradually reveals a world of sensations: black fruit, plums, cassis, chocolate, scrubland spices and a clear mineral backdrop reminiscent of chalk.
In the mouth, it shows excellent acidity and is pleasantly fresh, with a full, big body, a velvety tannin, exquisite ripeness of the fruit and a dense, concentrated and delicate texture. Huge in the mouth at every stage, suggesting a long life in the bottle.
Accompaniment: Red meats, game dishes, charcuterie, seasoned dishes and chocolate desserts. Serving temperature: 16-18º
