Comando G is a dream made reality by two young winemakers, Fernando García (Bodegas Marañones) and Daniel G. Jimenez Landi (Bodegas Jimenez Landi). They have 3 hectares of vines in two villages, Cadalso de los Vidrios and Rozas de Puerto Real, in the vicinity of the Sierra de Gredos.  Here they grow old Grenache vines, according to biodynamic principles, on granitic terrain, at 900-1000 metres’ altitude.
Their arrival on the market has been a real breath of fresh air, both for their winemaking style, producing subtle, perfumed wines, and for their original name, packaging and marketing.  In no time at all, and with little financial investment, Comando G has had its wines included among the Spanish wine elite, usually dominated by the large winemaking groups.


Surprising, faint orange hue. Very bright.


Very refined. Bursting with red fruit, citrus and white flower aromas in the first instance, before hints of scrubland herbs, peppers, and mineral aromas emerge. Pure elegance.


Firm structure, full of flavour. It displays a remarkably fine texture on the palate and is still slightly tannic.  Very mineral.  Fresh aftertaste and excellent depth.


Despite its fragile appearance, this 2011 shows itself to be more weighty and tannic than other vintages. A very elegant wine which we think needs a little more time in bottle to round out and reveal the enormous potential contained within. With its remarkable acidity, we are convinced that this is one of this wine's greatest vintages so far.

Recommended with oven-cooked shoulder of kid with herbs and spring onions.
