Tasting notes
Appearance: from garnet red to mahogany according to the age.
Nose: powerful, shifting between black fruit and red berries, giving it a lovely freshness, subtly complemented by notes of cocoa.
Palate: sumptuous balance between the solar strength of the wine and the fineness of its tannins. It has a great persistency with sweetness which develops greedily.
Sommelier's advice: Recommended food pairing: chocolate cakes and desserts. Serving temperature: 12°C. Ageing potential: over 5 years.
Grape variety/varieties: 100% Grenache Noir.
Harvest: The crop is hand-harvested when grapes are very ripe.
Soil: Terraced vineyards on old mica-schist from the Primary era.
Vinification: The grapes are destemmed and crushed. The maceration is long with an addition of alcohol to favour the extraction of aromas and tannins.
Ageing: The wine is aged for 8 months in vat in a reducing environment. After bottling, and before its release for sale, the wine undergoes another 3 months’ ageing.
Alcohol content: 17
