Blas De Serrano
Mature, Complex, Star-Studded Wines
The estate was founded in 2005 by the De Blas (Eugenio and Luis Miguel) and Serrano (José Manuel) families, both with roots in Fuentelcésped, a municipality with a wine heritage that dates back to the 12th century. The winemaking is overseen by Alsatian Sophie Kuhn who settled in Ribera del Duero after extensive experience in France (including junior roles at Domaine Leflaive and Chateau Cheval Blanc), Italy, Australia and California. The estate’s philosophy is only to release their three main cuvees when they’ve reached maturity, as a result the wines here have taken on a range of fascinating, tertiary characteristics and are a thrill to drink
30+ year old vines, up to 940m altitude. 12 months in French oak. Intense, inky, wonderfully integrated.
70-123 year old vines from the El Cezero and Los Cerezos plots, 18 months in French Oak, just 1,400 bottles produced. An astonishing wine.
De Blas Serrano
