Lagrimas del Valle Plata "El Chiqueno" Tequila 2022 (750ml)


From Lagrimas:

Lagrimas del Valle is a Vintage, “Rancho Unico” (Single Ranch) Tequila — celebrating the unique and distinctive characteristics of the very best single ranches of Agave.

The centuries old concept perpetuated by French winemakers that every piece of ground is unique and that, based upon its soil, flora, fauna, altitude and aspect, it will produce a wine that is unique to all other wines produced on other pieces of ground.

Lagrimas del Valle:
Demonstrates that terroir exists in Agave and Tequila. Most relevant points as follows:
• Lagrimas will be presented in Vintages (2022 is the first).
• Each bottling will be harvested from a single field (“Rancho Unico”, Palo Verde was the first)
• The terroir of each Rancho will present a tequila that differs in flavor and aroma from all other vintages. We do this intentionally, to demonstrate the rich complexity of the Blue Weber Agave.

El Chiqueño is located South of the Rio Santiago, near Amatitan, and settled in a low ravine (Barrancas). Its climate is very hot, which has allowed for the growth of mangos and ciruela - a local varietal of plum with bright acidity. The Plata showcases bold and assertive notes of cooked agave, fresh citrus oil, and nice minerality.
