FUENTESECA MEXICO Special Release Tequilas

The Fuenteseca Reserva Extra Añejo Tequilas include the oldest bottled tequilas in the history of the tequila business. They exemplify barrel aging mastery by using assorted wood types, storage conditions, altitudes and micro-climates to mature nuanced spirits. These historical selections are made available to us by Enrique Fonseca, who began storing these legendary distillates twenty-five years ago and now periodically releases them when determined to be optimal. The newest edition, Cosecha, is 3 year rested blanco. The Fuenteseca Tequilas are also the first commercially available tequila products authorized by the CRT to carry both an agave harvest vintage date as well as a barrel aging statement.

Fuenteseca Reserva Añejo 7yr Fuenteseca Reserva Añejo 7yr 84PF / 750ML

Fuenteseca Reserva Añejo 18yr 87PF / 750ML

Produced in September 1995, 75% of this lot was distilled in copper double-column stills and 25% distilled in copper alembic stills. Aging began in Canadian white oak casks previously used to age rye whiskey and stored at 4,600’ for six years. The tequilas were then blended and re-barreled, with half left to rest in Canadian white oak Rye casks and half moved to European dark oak barrels previously used to age California red wine. The refilled casks were then moved to a cooler, breezier climate, and left to age for an additional twelve years. Fuenteseca Reserva Añejo 21yr 87PF / 750ML This lot was distilled in copper double-column stills from mostly 1984 plantings harvested in late 1993 and laid into barrel in early 1994. The casks were stored 10 years in a dry, earthen-floor room in Atotonilco el Alto, before being moved to a higher, cooler climate on the slope above the highland town, where they remained for 11 more years. Nearly all of the barrels were previously used for aging California white wine, with one barrel having been used for aging Canadian rye whiskey.

Enrique Fonseca distilled this expression in early Spring of 2010, with three-quarters of the bottling made in a double-copper column still with removed plates to achieve a lower distillation proof, and the remaining quarter made in an alembic pot still. Half of the run was then stored in American white oak previously used to age California red wine, and the remaining half barreled. Fuenteseca Reserva Añejo 11yr 83.4PF / 750ML Distilled in late winter of 2006 with two-thirds of the expression made in a double-copper column still with plates removed to achieve a lower distillation proof and the remaining third made in an alembic pot still. One third of this lot was then laid into in American white oak previously used to age California red wine, and the remaining two-thirds was barreled in used dark French Oak. The casks were then rested for the full 11 years at 3,800’ elevation in a cool-climate subterranean barrel room, with the upper-most portion of the room opened to allow for soft air circulation in order to create a drier aging environment.

“ ...the oldest bottled tequilas in the history of the tequila business. They exemplify barrel aging mastery... ”

When it comes to brandies, nothing competes with France’s amber trio; Cognac, Armagnac and Calvados, each a pure product of its own terroir. Cognac comes from a sector of chalky soil near the town it’s named for, in the Charentes region north of Bordeaux. Armagnac’s territory lies south of the Garonne river in the Midi Pyrénées region once known as Gascony, of Musketeer fame. Made with white wine from three areas—in ascending order of excellence, Haut-Armagnac, Ténarèze and Bas Armagnac Apple orchards replace vineyards in Normandy, where calvados , familiarly called calva, was named after one of the departments in which it’s made—double-distilled from apple mash fermented with yeast. First recorded in the 16th century, calva is the basis of the trou Normand, the pause during a hearty meal for a nip —FRANCETODAY.COM
