AGEING:15-18 months in vats (foudres)
A shaded amphitheatre at the feet of Nuestra Señora de la Consolación shrine, in the heart of historic Priorat.
A harmonious, intimate and grandiose landscape.
Its steep, northeast-facing slopes accommodate 1.45 hectares planted in 1939 to the region’s top variety: Garnacha.
Vines emerge from cold, beautiful green slate soils. Or else from granite and sandstone promontories shining on the slope. Magic minerality with inscrutable strength.
Tended with the utmost care and perfumed by the soft breeze, the vines produce a cold wine, which is full of mystery and enigmatic exclusivity and beauty. A true classic.
