To put it bluntly, Comando G has an understanding of Garnacha (Grenache) like very few properties throughout the world do. Garnacha is always generous in the strawberry jam fruit department, but endowing it with finesse and a cool-fruited quality is rare. Old Rayas did this, as did Henri Bonneau. But, finding other examples that carry this same elegance is so difficult that I always find names like Foillard and Lapierre are evoked before Chateauneuf du Pape estates.

This is all to say that the composure, silken texture, and focus on freshness that I've come to expect from Beaujolais' best domaines is captured perfectly in Comando G's style. But, we're not dealing with Gamay here, instead these wines are true to their Garnacha roots with their robust red fruit traits and wild incense spice. They just happened to have found stability on that high wire act with that lightness of being virtue seldom achieved with Garnacha.

Daniel Landi and Fermando Garcia became friends in college and shortly after started working for wineries around Madrid. Rumors spread about wild, old vines planted on almost inaccessible plots high in the hills of Sierra de Gredos. The duo slowly leased these vineyards, implementing organic and biodynamic farming, and production of these micro-cuvées began.

Fermentation takes place in open-top oak vats and aging is in 500-liter neutral French oak barrels, foudre, and clay amphorae.
