This is a incredibly well balanced Grenache that drinks in the style of a Chateauneuf du Pape. The nose shows savory minerals, spice, coffee, dried cherry, raspberry, and a hit of earth and tar. The palate is present with moderate acid and a flavor set of tar, raspberry, black cherry, and raspberry. D&M Tasting Notes
This wine concentrates the world of colours and aromatic sensations that we find when walking along any path in Priorat. Pissarres is the true mirror of our region. Dark red, depth, the energy and wisdom of the selected ‘costers’. The palate is complex. It has ripe fruit, memories of the Mediterranean brushwood and a sharp, cold note which is the characteristic mark of the llicorella slate soils’ extreme minerality.
On these steep, brittle slate slopes, known as ‘costers’, Priorat grapevines have been traditionally grown.
Sharp hillsides, held here and there by small drywalls, under a bursting heaven. It is and enchanting scenery, shaped by country people, built to recollect a scarce but rich fruit from the mountain. Nowadays, the Priorat hills are synonymous with old vines and total identity. The symbol of this little region’s greatness. Winery Notes
