[TOO NEW FOR VIVINO]

 

What a pure discovery this Baby Sancerre, because that's what we call this gem. The price is unbelievable, we have checked that 10 times. Pure luxury, beautiful minerals, lightly aged wood and all for less than 10 euros. It is a white wine with a classic style, a nice nod to the Sancerre or Pouilly Fume wines.

In the middle of the Jumilla region we find the old winery and family business Bodegas Bellavista. This winery was founded in 1870 and is very progressive in their vinification techniques. They were one of the first to plant the fresh Sauvignon Blanc grape variety here. And that was not a bad choice given the circumstances. The sun shines here fully and thanks to the large difference in height, from 400 to 950 meters, the grapes enjoy a lot of heat but also the necessary refreshment. The winery Bodegas Bellavista is completely dedicated to this wine region and we can taste that in all their wines. Lots of richness, finesse and traditional winemaking techniques.

The vines of this white Cambil Bay are already old. The yield is low, but the quality is even greater. The Bellavista family puts a lot of love into it, together with the modern and old classical techniques. The Sauvignon Blanc bunches enjoy the warmth of the sun and the coolness of the wind at night. The growth process is therefore slow and balanced. Thanks to the rich soil structure, the trusses also manage to extract a lot of nutrients from the soil. At optimum ripeness, the grapes are carefully harvested. After this, the juice gets a light wood aging which makes it complete. So beautiful unprecedented!

As soon as we have opened the bottle we smell a soft scent of minerals, white fruit, flint and some burnt wood. In the glass it is clear with a beautiful green shimmer. With the nose to the glass, our eyes are wide open, pure refinement with light white fruit and a touch of citrus. A little waltz and we smell the wood and a volcanic note. In the mouth wonderfully fresh with nice soft and pleasant acids. Sticky minerals to the cheeks and some gooseberry and lime. In the aftertaste a lot of power, soft long attack of the wooden barrel. World topper!
