La méthode selon laquelle le vin est conçu ainsi que la grande connaissance de la région constituent le point de départ du projet ainsi que l’inspiration de l’histoire du domaine. C’est exactement de là qu’il tire son nom (Conceito se traduit par le mot concept). Depuis le 18e siècle, le porto exerce un monopole sur la production de vins au Portugal, ce qui crée un paysage d’une extraordinaire beauté. Ce n’est que tout récemment que les vignerons ont entrevu l’immense...

The 2015 Estate Tinto is a field blend from old vines (90 years or so) at 450 meters in altitude. It was aged for 22 months in French oak (50% new, 50% second use). This was seen before but only as a tank sample. This is the first look in the U.S. and in bottle. It opens with powerful aromatics and seems simply sumptuous, thanks to its purity of fruit. Compared to the Único Tinto reviewed, this is just as intensely flavorful, perhaps even more so. As the two have developed in bottle, the Único seems deeper and oakier, while this has more mid-palate finesse, despite the initial impression of sumptuousness and purity. (If you're calibrating, at this point the Ontem is the lightest, freshest red of the upper-level reds, the Único is the biggest and this is in the middle.) Wonderfully elegant, this precise Tinto is not the biggest red ever, but it holds its own in persistence on the finish and delivers that fine fruit flavor. It has that "old school" feeling of refinement, sophistication and subtly. It maintains flavor and structure while seeming ethereal and fresh in the mouth. It integrates its wood far better than the Único just now, but both are a little closed. From what I saw in Porto over the summer, they will both do better with a few years in the cellar to allow them to pull in the wood better. This was notably better when tasted on the next day. It will be more interesting around 2020–2023. At this point, if you open it now, give it some air—there's a real backbone here, too—but this is probably a bit closer to ready than the Único. They should both age very well, perhaps better than indicated.Voir la revue de presse détaillée

Rich, generous and packed with fruit, this is a field-blend wine that just bursts from the glass. With a fine balance between tannins and the rich blackberry fruits, the wine is ripe, warm and structured...Voir la revue de presse détaillée
