Only by pampering those which are (possibly) the world's oldest grenache strains can be made a wine like Fagus. Therefore it is so exclusive. And so scarce! It is a red wine traditionally made from a selection of grenache grapes, which belongs to the brand Coto de Hayas by Bodegas Aragonesas. After the controlled fermentation, the wine is transferred and kept in French oak barrels. With an intense cherry red color, it has a powerful bouquet of ripe berries. Flavor is tasty and well balanced.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Fagus de Coto de Hayas is a selection of Garnacha from 40- to 50-year-old vineyards, which aged in contact with the lees in new French oak barrels for ten months. It's very aromatic and perfumed, with strong notes of flowers and ripe small red and blueberries, hints of incense and vanilla, very showy and attractive, perhaps a little over the top. The palate is medium-bodied, with glossy, sophisticated tannins and a fine texture. This is a sleek, showy wine. 75,000 bottles.

Wine EnthusiastOdd aromas of clove are smoky but mostly come across as weird and forced. This has a lactic, creamy mouthfeel with soft edges. The flavor profile is all wood, and resiny, clove-driven wood at that. A severely sweet, cloying, resiny finish is a lot to deal with.
