‘La Scala’ single vineyard is an historical plot, the 1st Cabernet Sauvignon ever planted in Spain, all the way back to 1963. That was the dream of Angel Ceferino Carrion Madrazo (who later changed his name to Jean Leon), who made fortune after moving from its native Spain to the US in 1949, 1st to New-York where he was a taxi driver, then to Los Angeles. There, after a few different jobs, he opened ‘La Scala’ Restaurant in 1956, who quickly become an iconic place amongst the elite. In early 1960s, missing his our town, and desiring to showcase their wines, he setup his own winery in a remote location in the heart of Catalunya, in a region which will become later the ‘Penedes’ DOC appellation.

La Scala Block, planted solely with Cabernet Sauvignon, and is used only in exceptional vintages. The vines are organically-grown, handpicked and aged in French & American oak barrels for a minimum of 24 months, followed by a minimum of 3 years bottle ageing in the estate. The wines showcase great purity and exceptional ageing potential.

This is the Ultimate expression of the Cabernet Sauvignon variety, as well as its aging potential and correct evolution. A wine with an intense and complex aroma. Good tannic structure, great presence and length.

 

This Limited Edition Wooden Gift Box comes with different vintage of the wine: 2007, 2009 & 2011. Certified organic wines.

About The Brand

The story behind the Jean Leon winery, in Spain’s Mediterranean Wine Region of Penedes, is literally something out of Hollywood. Born as Ceferino Carrion in Santander, Spain in 1928, Jean Leon was always ambitious. At 19, he left Spain to find his luck in Paris, New York and ultimately Hollywood. He founded the world famous California restaurant, “La Scala” in Beverly Hills. What many people don’t know is that he started the restaurant in partnership with James Dean. The gourmet establishment became the haunt of many famous actors and performers of the time.

However, despite his huge success in America, Jean Leon still missed his native Spain. He decided to use his well-known name (respected in gastronomic and enological circles in the US) to return to Spain and create a world-class winery. That was back in 1963. His was one of the first wineries to pioneer the concept of a “single vineyard estate”, virtually unheard of during the Franco years and religious cooperatives. This concept is called “Pago” and is still not the norm in Spain. Jean Leon also broke tradition by importing French grape varietals, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. He believed that these grapes suited the balmy Mediterranean climate perfectly.
