About the winery

 The Jean Leon winery was designed and built in 1964, in the Bordeaux Chateau style. It stands at the centre of the estate, at one of its highest points, and is surrounded by the company’s own vineyards.

The external appearance of the winery has undergone few changes, and it maintains the same classical presence it had almost 40 years ago.

However, from the time it was built, the inside of the Jean Leon winery has always been home to the latest technological advances for the production of wines of the highest expression.

The winery’s philosophy has always been oriented towards quality, elegance and limited production so that individualised control of all wines throughout the process can be ensured. This is why, despite the technical advances incorporated by the winery, many tasks are still performed in a manual and traditional way, thus guaranteeing the perfect monitoring of all processes.

Oenologist Jaume Rovira continues to oversee all wine production, contributing the knowledge accumulated over many years working on the estate and in the winery.

The Jean Leon winery boasts a fine team of staff with extensive experience. Especially worthy of mention is our pago team, which performs all tasks manually, allowing us to carefully select the grapes both in the vineyard and on the selection table at harvest time.

Professionals’ opinions

   buyVINOS EU
Brilliant red colour with ochre rim, a sign of its oak ageing. Intense varietal aroma, complex, with notes of quince jam and prunes, reinforced by the aromas of oak ageing (vanilla, toast, smoke, etc.). On the palate it offers a meaty and velvety attack. Good structure with sweet tannins, accompanied by notes of quince and dried fruits (toasted hazelnuts), it retains good ageing potential, with a long, persistent and pleasing aftertaste.
