Wine Advocate 88/100
“I do wish everyone could taste how pure it is right now…”
Revista de Vinhos, Portugal
Catavinum World Wine & Spirits Competition, Spain
Harvest white is a naked wine of good aromatic intensity, concentrated and fresh. Easy to drink, gathers consensus for hors d’oeuvres (appetizers), shellfish and grilled fish.
The varieties are mainly Viosinho, Rabigato and Codega de Larinho from vineyards under 20 years old.
After completing a degree in oenology and several internships in Burgundy in 1992, Jean-Hugues Gros had the unique opportunity of working for 16 months at Sandeman in Oporto, thus discovering Port wines and the charming Douro region as well as its wines.
Further experiences in California and in Champagne brought him definitively in 1999 to work for Quinta do Convento de São Pedro das Águias, a small Port wine producing estate sited close to the Távora River, close to Tabuaço. Presently, Jean-Hugues is a wine producer as well as consultant oenologist for various Douro region estates.
