This is BELONDRADE's "second vin", echoing the spirit of the second labels from the Chateaux in Bordeaux. With this wine, they seek a different interpretation of BELONDRADE Y LURTON, one that is fresher and more varietal. It is named after Didier's elder daughter and was crafted for the first time in 2002. It is the outcome of an "assemblage" between one-third of barrel-fermented wine and two-thirds of wine fermented in stainless steel tanks and in concrete tanks. It blends the acidity and spark of the Verdejo grape with the structure and complexity brought from the part that is fermented in barrels.

Tasting Notes


Created by Didier Belondrade in 1994, this winery is responsible for the wine we're presenting today, one of the most refined Spanish whites and, definitely, one of our favorite Verdejos fromRueda, if not the most. Relying on 4 principles, Didier (Founder), with Marta Baquerizo (Winemaker and Director) and Jean Belondrade (2nd Generation), have been able to transform and re-define the way people think about Verdejo. Here they are:

  1. Respect for nature
  2. Great grape selection
  3. Spontaneous fermentation
  4. AGING: Yes, aging - Important differentiator for Verdejo here.
