Review

We often ask ourselves how can the same grape variety produce such different wines. Each vineyard undoubtedly has its own expression, the terroir... but when origins are very close and similar, evidence points to the producer's skill and expertise. A good example: El Sequé. Include it in a Monastrell tasting and you'll understand. El Sequé is a superior category Monastrell, a robust wine, classy, serious, powerful and excellent for cellaring, like all wines aged in barrel and bearing the Artadi signature.

El Sequé is made using grapes from a selection of old vineyards which Artadi owns in a place of the same name, in the region of Alicante, a wine-producing land since Phoenician and Roman times, with several thousand years of vine-growing tradition. These are the origins of this wine, which appears a very vivid purple colour in its youth, bright and very primary on the nose, with the most intense aromas of well-ripened plums and cherries, sweet fruit, notes of toasted bread, earth and wild flowers, and with some gentle menthol hints which imbue the wine with a very definite balsamic character. Overall, a red with clear signs of Mediterranean identity.

On the palate, El Sequé is very harmonious, warm, rounded, dense and incredibly young, although with the oak already very well integrated... and that smoothness, that amazingly soft texture, so "Artadi", a velvety mouthfeel. You couldn't go wrong if you kept this wine until it had matured in bottle for at least a couple of years; invest a bit of time, wait awhile for the pleasure, and it will reward you with greater complexity and refinement.

Mi monastrell preferido

Es difícil hacer un monovarietal monastrell tan bueno. Para mí que lleva alguna pequeña proporción de otras uvas porque está muy bien redondeado en su parte frutal. Excelente crianza. ¡Enhorabuena, provincia de Alicante!

ES UN VINO QUE GUSTA AL PLADAR Y ME FASCINA

ME GUSTA MUCHO EL PALADAR Y EL OLOR Y ENTRA DE MARAVILLA CON CUALQUIER COMIDA. ME ENCANTA Y ME FASCINA Y LA CALIDAD7PRECIO INMEJORABLE.

Just Lovely!

I am a big fan of Artadi wines. The El Seque is I guess one of their 'entry level' wines but even so it simply oozes the quality and finesse I have come to expect from any wine carrying the Artadi label. It is a lovely wine!

Mejora mucho un día después de abierto

Aconsejo abrirlo y dejarlo en la puerta del frigorífico un día (con el corcho), pues se disfruta más al día siguiente. ¿Por qué? Pues porque se concentra mejor su potencia frutal y alcohólica y disminuye hasta desaparecer el regusto a hortalizas que desprende la monastrell, y eso da igual la altitud, la vejez de los viñedos o la excelencia del proceso de vinificación. Es sólo un consejo. Fácil de comprobar si ha sobrado vino para otro día.

Un gran vino

Un gran vino propio de una gran bodega. Artadi es siempre garantía de un buen vino y esta variedad de uva mediterránea no defrauda en absoluto 100% recomendable

For this purpose, they have Jean François Gadeau as their technical director, Agapito Rico takes charge of viticult...
