Selectus Wines January-March 2020

Special places of unique beauty. Gorgeous, well-designed objects that strike the eye. Lands and seas that offer us their good, honest produce. There are those who know how to find these places, appreciate these objects, and enjoy this bounty of the land and sea. Selectus Wines is aimed at these people and the establishments they frequent. Uniqueness, beauty, distinction, finesse and well-being can also be expressed through wine and the vineyards they hail from. We seek out, select and describe these wines for the enjoyment of these discerning consumers. Lugares con belleza singular, que son especiales. Objetos que destacan por su capacidad de atracción y por su diseño, que son llamativos. Tierras y campos, mares y océanos que ofrecen sus más sinceros y honestos productos. Personas que saben encontrar esos lugares, que saben llevar esos objetos, que saben apreciar esas vituallas. Para todos ellos y para los lugares en los que se sienten cómodos, se escribe Selectuswines. La singularidad, la belleza, la distinción, la finura, el bienestar pueden, también, expresarse a través de los vinos y sus parajes. Los descubrimos, los seleccionamos, los bebemos y los describimos para que la gente con sensibilidad los pueda disfrutar.

satisfactory progress…

EN LA BUENA LÍNEA… When people start a business, they obviously hope that things will go smoothly, that the business will be a success and grow “little by little and with good lyrics” as the Spanish saying goes. When we started out on this adventure called “Selectus Wines”, this is what we were, of course, hoping for…. that our business would make “satisfactory progress”, as they might say to primary school children when handing them their school reports. In 2019, in our own “school report”, which came in the form of the IWC Merchant Awards Spain, we once again received the highest grades for a Spanish wine publication and we could not be more delighted. Picking up this award for a second time was no mean feat when you consider the high calibre…

Today, there are many pathways to luxury. In recent times, we have seen different sides of luxury itself: what was once ostentatious is now too showy, and what was once elitist is now far removed from reality. Perhaps today we’ve discovered a more grounded luxury, based on sharing and democratizing, on having once-in-a-lifetime experiences and on seeking unique emotional stimuli. Champagne has always been a region associated with luxury, but today its reality is very different from that of several years ago. The stately has become artisanal, and the large, imposing Champagne Houses now share the stage with small producers. Our subjects today are, a producer who sits midway between the large and small Houses, and Charles Philipponnat, who presides at the helm of a Champagne House that has always sought to seduce and…

40years of winemaking in chile

40AÑOS DE VITICULTURA EN CHILE En 1979 la Familia Torres desembarca en el Valle de Curicó para iniciar su aventura chilena. Los consejos de Alejandro Parot, buen amigo de Miguel A. Torres (presidente de Familia Torres y 4ª generación) y la búsqueda de un nuevo proyecto vinícola, fueron los motivos que les llevaron en aquel entonces a iniciar esta aventura que contribuyó a dinamizar la viticultura chilena y que cumple hoy 40 años de trayectoria. Recognized in 2018 as “Vineyard of the Year” by the Wines of Chile association, Miguel Torres Chile has 400 hectares of vineyards that extend across the regions of Maule, Bío-Bío, and Ñuble and 200 employees.

MACABEO Winegrowers have known about the diversity and versatility of the Macabeo for years. From north to south and from east to west, it is rooted in different landscapes and backdrops. It is frequently found in regions such as Aragon, Rioja, Extremadura, Castilla y León and Castilla-La Mancha, Madrid and even the Balearic Islands. It is part of the trilogy of grapes used for the production of Cava and it is also grown on the other side of the Pyrenees in the Languedoc-Rousillon region of France. Macabeo is, however, most widely planted in Spain, where its surface area of 35,000 hectares exceeds that of France by over 10%. In terms of winemaking, the varietal can express its potential whether or not it is barrel-aged. Although, due to its structure, it will always…
