Jean Leon Xarel.lo

Land. Environment, Character. The Jean Leon Native range, produced with native Catalan varieties, pays homage to Penedès, the region chosen by Jean Leon to fulfil his dream of making a wine bearing his name. Catalan tiles, a valuable piece of our heritage and traditional culture, provide the inspiration for this collection.

The Wind Rose represents this organic, fresh and elegant Xarel·lo, made from 100% of the quintessential Penedès grape variety.

The essence
of the Penedés

Xarel·lo is a characteristic variety of the Penedès Denomination of Origin. It is the most widely cultivated grape variety and is perfectly adapted to the local terroirs and climates.

It is a hardy plant offering early sprouting and regular growth. Resistant to drought and heat, it produces a consistent and high-quality crop year after year.

A wine with a crisp entry and honest acidity. This delicate and elegant acidity is consistent throughout the palate. It has a smooth and persistent finish, sweetened by an unctuousness and volume achieved through ageing on lees.

DO Penedès
100% Xarel·lo
Alcoholic fermentation for 12 days at a controlled temperature of 15ºC
A land. An environment. A character.

The rose of the winds

The tile illustrating this first release of the Native Range, Jean Leon Xarel·lo, is a set of four individually decorated fragments with a central eight-pointed star known as "The Rose of the Winds", painted in blue and yellow and surrounded by plant motifs.

The "Rose of the Winds" is a diagram whose meaning is closely associated with monitoring the weather and wind through its points that mark the eight main directions on a compass rose.

This tile dates back to between the 17th and 19th centuries, at a time when vineyards were flourishing, and the wine trade was booming in the Penedès region.
