90-93 Pts Jay Miller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2010 Blanco (tasted from a tank sample) offers up aromas of mineral, bee's wax, melon, and stone fruits leading to a creamy, intense impression on the palate. It has excellent balance and a lengthy finish. A tasting of several of the older vintages suggests that the wine is capable of evolving for 2-3 years and drinking well for 6-8."
"Clos d'Agon, a partnership of six Swiss 'friends of wine', began as a virtual garage winery in 1999 before construction was completed on the new facility in 2005. Located in a beautiful area of Colonge (Girona) but outside the boundaries of any prestigious DO, the wine is forced to carry the generic Catalunya DO. The owners hired Peter Sisseck of Dominio Pingus as a consultant, a sign of wisdom (or Swiss business acumen). The white wine is typically a blend of 45% Roussanne, 35% Viognier, and 20% Marsanne with percentages varying slightly from year to year. A part of the wine is aged for 6-7 months in seasoned oak, the balance in stainless steel. Native yeasts are preferred and used when possible and clarification is done only if necessary. The Clos d'Agon Tinto's blend has evolved over the years. Currently a typical vintage is made up of 35% Cabernet Franc, 30% Syrah, 15% Merlot, with the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The wine generally spends 16 months in barrel, 50% new, with each variety vinified separately. Both the 2010 and 2009 were barrel samples." (05/11)
"The vine age is 25 years. Clos d'Agon is practicing organic. The altitude of the vineyards is 450 feet above sea level. Peter Sisseck is the winemaker at Clos d'Agon. The wine is aged for 7 months in oak." -Importer
"In 1998, a group of friends from Switzerland decided to purchase some prime vineyard land in Spain and settled on this remote northeastern corner of the country. Every member of the group is involved in the wine industry, from distribution to retail sales and winery ownership. Peter Sisseck (of Pingus fame) was immediately hired to produce the first vintage and continues on as a consultant at the property." -Importer
"This plateau behind Calonge is ideal for growing of the vineyard. The Mediterranean climate here has a low average annual rainfall (600 mm / year) although it is compensated for the refreshing breeze from the sea 3 km to the south. This prevents extreme temperatures, which could adversely affect the vegetation of the place. The ripening time of the grapes is the one with less precipitation, as in the area of Bordeaux."
"The grapes usually mature early; the grape harvest usually begins late in August (white grapes) and ends in late September. The vineyard grow on limestone and slate soils, and are aligned primarily to the south. There are only 4500 stocks per hectare." -Winery
