Tasting note

“Fruit of the vines planted between 80 and 115 years ago and from an excellent year. Medium-high body. Noble woods. There is a great balance in the mouth, with a velvety feel, although there is a point of tannin at the end. All of which is nicely enveloped by a balanced acidity. It is imposing, tasty, with wood throughout and verticality. More dark fruits than red ones, with a marked minerality (graphite) and aromatic herbs of the chaparral. It is a wine for the fireside, to enjoy the glass slowly over time.”
Ramon Francàs – June 2020

Vintage 2016

A record vintage. Small healthy grapes, fruit of the driest summer we have had to date after a rainy spring. The moderate average temperatures with small showers in September provided us with one of the calmest and longest vintages of the last few years. Excellent ripeness and acidity. A benchmark vintage, one of the best in the last few years.
