Chan de Rosas Cuvée Especial Albariño 2019

(1 customer review)


Rías Baixas D.O

An elegant Albariño inside and outside

The harvest is carried out by hand in small 15kg boxes. After destemming, the grapes are cold macerated at 7C for 12 hours. The must then goes through a static racking for the next 24 hours. Fermentation is slow and at low temperatures to maintain the pure expression of the fruit flavour (pineapple, peach, mango and some honeysuckle). Every week the wine is stirred to keep the lees suspended in order to add additional complexity in aromas & flavours. A portion of the wine undergoes alcoholic fermentation in new French oak barrels for roundness and body and then just a portion of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation.

Tasting notes

Expressive and energetic thanks to its high acidity which is typical of the Albariño grape. The Rías Baixas region in north-west Spain is the “home” of Albariño and while it is grown successfully in North America, Australia and other regions of the world, the grape shows its best characteristics here. The Cuvée Especial has very appealing bouquets of white peach, apricot, honey and even some spices. This harmonious combination of aromas and flavours is enveloped in a round and slightly creamy body with additional delicate hints of vanilla in the nose and on the palate.
A great balance that the winemaker has been able to achieve between high acidity and body!
This is a very well made wine with graceful and beautiful length. Very enjoyable now and it might also be interesting to keep and mature for 2-3 years.


Decanter, 96 Points: “A thoroughly appealing bouquet with honey, peach, apricot and spice all contributing in harmony. Palate is crisp and creamy with notes of vanilla, lime and greengage. Overall length and balance can’t be faulted. Long, too.”

James Suckling, 90 Points: “Bright, fresh peaches and pears, lemon sherbet, and a very succulent and fresh, melon and white-peach finish. Drink now.”

The Grapes

The experience and the knowledge he obtained of the area and the Albariño grape led to the selection of 12 Salnés Valley winemakers with vineyards in privileged lands producing high quality fruit for the Rias Baixas Albariño. Some of the vineyards are planted for more than 70 years in the areas of: A Carabuxeira (Sanxenxo), Padrenda (Meaño), Cabeza de Boi (Meis), A Pedreira (Sisán) Castrelo (Cambados) and Lores (Meaño).

The Climate

The Designation of Origin (D.O.) Rias Baixas is fully integrated into the great Atlantic region, with four full seasons . It provides a great variance of temperature and rainfall, and moderated by the influence of the Gulf Stream. In Winter, Atlantic storms arrive bringing heavy rainfall and with little marked differences between day and night temperatures. Spring is early and rainy. In early summer the Azores anticyclone settles over the western Atlantic, preventing the passage of atmospheric disturbances. Rainfall is infrequent and temperatures are consistent. In this season the soils are dry and the vines become mildly stressed from the increased temperature. And because of the sandy soil that helps drainage. In autumn, just after harvest, the storms arrive again one after another, refreshing the soils and vines before winter’s hibernation period.


The Rías Baixas Albariño and in particular the vineyards where the Chan de Rosas grapes grow, are located next to the Ria de Arousas Sea. The soil shallows but well-drains, formed from the decomposition of the granitic rocks. It results in a sandy soil and acidic structure. Both the location of the land and the type of soil provides the wines a characteristic albariño notes of crisp fruits, salinity and minerality.

Margaux Hyacinthe

Motto ~ Love what you do and inspire people ~

I possess a strong entrepreneurial mindset and am always ready for new challenges. I have a Master’s Degree in Transport, Logistics and International Trade; knowledge I am determined to put into practice by spreading my passion for wine. Speak three languages fluently: French, Spanish, and English, and currently learning Dutch.

I was raised in the Loire Valley, a beautiful wine region, and had the luck to be named after one of France’s most interesting wines: Margaux! I was fortunate to grow up with Sancerre and Cabernet Franc vines in my backyard, and have since explored and tasted my way through all of France’s great wine regions.
When I started traveling the world, I realised that there is so much more to wine – the grapes, the history, the people, the terroirs. How amazing would it be to share this awareness and experience with others?
That is why I have decided to start the adventure here and be part of MH&DL Exclusive Terroirs.

Authentic qualities: Enthusiasm, Dedication and Passion

Ontwikkelen van verkoopkanalen op de internationale markt naar verschillende Chileense wijnhuizen. Naast sterke allianties met wijnmakerijen uit de oude wereld

Door de jaren heen heb ik over de hele wereld een sterk netwerk opgebouwd in de wijnindustrie. Mijn werk- en levenservaringen zijn een grote aanwinst voor het avontuur van MH&DL.

Motto ~ Hou van wat je doet en inspireer mensen ~

Ik ben ondernemend en altijd klaar voor nieuwe uitdagingen. Ik heb een master in transport, logistiek en internationale handel – kennis die maar al te graag in praktijk wil brengen door mijn passie voor wijn met de wereld te delen. Ik spreek drie talen vloeiend: Frans, Spaans en Engels, en ik leer momenteel Nederlands.

Ik ben opgegroeid in de Loire, een prachtige wijnregio, en ik bof naar een van de bijzonderste Franse wijnen te zijn vernoemd: Margaux! Ik had het geluk op te groeien met Sancerre- en Cabernet Franc-wijnstokken in de achtertuin, en ik heb sindsdien alle grote wijngebieden van Frankrijk verkend en geproefd.Toen ik de wereld rondreisde, realiseerde ik me dat er zoveel meer achter wijn schuilt: de druiven, de geschiedenis, de mensen, de terroirs. Hoe geweldig zou het zijn als ik al dit bewustzijn en deze ervaring met anderen kan delen?
Daarom heb ik besloten om hier het avontuur te beginnen en deel uit te maken van MH&DL Exclusive Terroirs.
