The 2007 Release of Journey to Chateau de la Fuente
A great cigar puts me in the perfect mood to create beautiful music, for both are passions born of the soul. At Chateau de la Fuente, I have discovered a magical land in which to enjoy both - music and cigars. Join me and my friends, Don Carlos and Carlito Fuente, for together we will share the very best, and make beautiful music together.  Arturo Sandoval

The 2007 release of Journey to Chateau de la Fuente comes in a wooden box.  Each set comes with four rare Fuente Fuente OpusX cigars, Arturo Sandoval CD and Photo Essay Book.  4,000 boxes were released for the world in November 2007.

MSRP $150.00.  The MSRP will vary, depending on the tobacco tax and import duty rates in the state or country where the authorized Prometheus dealer is located.
To visit Chateau de la Fuente is to bask in the hospitality of the Fuentes, to be welcomed as part of their family. Their guest house and nearby gazebo are both protected by thatched roofs of palm fronds that ward off undesired spirits in the time-honored tradition of ancient Cuba.

And when one asks about the picturesque painted rock scorpion colorfully stretched out across a green expanse of lawn, Carlito will tell you that Scorpio was the astrological birth sign of his grandfather Arturo, born on November 18th. Perhaps not by chance, this was also the date the very first boxes of Fuente Fuente OpusX were shipped to America.

Six of the eight Royal Guardsmen – the sole survivors of the tortuous, uprooting wrath of Hurricane Georges in 1998 – stand guard like silent sentinels over the fields of Chateau de la Fuente.

When Carlito saw these eight Royal Palms still standing after the devastating wrath of the hurricane had passed, he refused to cut them down when the fields were replanted.

“I believe there is something uniquely, even wonderfully spiritual, about these eight palms,” he says, “They are survivors.”

Indeed, Royal Palms are a Cuban symbol of endurance, and require many years to reach their great heights. Thus, in many ways, they are like the Fuente family itself.

Starting September 2005, all Fuente Aged Selection cigars have come with the second band printed with the year of production.
After the harvest, the fresh green tobacco is hung in curing barns where their moisture is allowed to evaporate slowly. After over 6 weeks in the curing barn, the leaves gradually turn to a beautiful, rich shade of brown. The cured tobacco leaves are then fermented - after which they are aged for years before the Fuentes consider them ready for their finest cigars. Even though the cigars are made with aged tobacco, they have to be aged again after skilled torcedors rolled them. Carlos Fuente, Father and Son, age their cigars at least for four months before they release them from their aging room.

When the cigars are first made, they are in the embryonic stage in which their ultimate taste is still being developed. As they are aged, they go through the maturation. During the maturation, the filler, binder and wrapper leaves form a perfect unity and balance, and the taste of the combined tobaccos becomes even more enhanced. The cigars, which are aged for one year in an ideal environment, will taste far better than when they were first made. The taste of the cigar reaches its pinnacle as they are aged for longer years.

When you produce wine, you do not use aged grapes. You harvest grapes for that year’s wine. However, in case of cigar making, you use the tobacco, which has already been aged for many years. The year on the bottle of vintage wine signifies the year of the grape harvest. However, you cannot put the year of the tobacco harvest on the box of the cigars. There is a good chance that the filler, binder and wrapper leaves are all harvested in different years. The year on the second bands signifies when the cigars were produced. You can track how long these Fuente Fuente OpusX cigars have been aged since their production from the year on the second band.
Please do not forget to age some of these vintage cigars even further, like fine wines, for added enjoyment in the future.

Your order will be shipped by one of our authorized dealers.
