Get to know Jean Leon's legacy through his wines.

Vinya Le Havre

Jean Leon set sail for the USA as a stowaway from the French port of Le Havre, where he was soon discovered by a sailor who decided to help him stay hidden. This Reserva pays homage to the silent complicity of a stranger who would change Jean Leon's life forever.

Made from Cabernet Sauvignon and a small percentage of Cabernet Franc, this limited-production wine is produced from a unique 12-hectare terroir bearing the same name.

A blend of quintessential Bordeaux varieties, elegant on the nose, with toasted notes and spicy undertones resulting from its ageing in oak barrels. It has a powerful attack, followed by a lengthy, full-bodied mid-palate with excellent tannins and a long, lingering finish.

DO Penedès
Cabernet Sauvignon; Cabernet Franc
Aged for a minimum of 12 months in French and American oak barrels and a minimum of 2 years in the bottle.
