Details

Delicate, rare and characteristic, 3/VB Blanc de Negres de Capçanes is produced from over 50-year-old Grenache grapevines.

Harvested by hand in October and meticulously selected on site, once in the Celler Capçanes' facilities the grapes were destemmed and food trodden, after which the solid part of the skins was quickly separated from the wine must not to colour it. Alcoholic fermentation of this Spanish white wine took place in stainless steel tanks for 3 weeks. Once finished, this Montsant white wine was transferred into new French oak barrels, where 3/VB Blanc de Negres de Capçanes 2013 completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 3 years.

Drink this Blanc de Noirs from the DO Montsant over the next 4 years.

Aerate 30 minutes before drinking.

Only 2,000 bottles produced.

Additional Information

Appearance

The wine 3/VB Blanc de Negres de Capçanes has an elegant, golden colour with some steely tinges.

Nose

Intringuing and complex, this white wine made from Grenache begins suggesting some aromas of tropical fruit, baked apples and flowers (roses and jasmine), which seamlessly evolve into tips of raspberries, strawberry yoghurt, toast and smoke.

Palate

Smooth and palate-coating, this Crianza white wine has a deeply mineral character which is not austere or strict, but surprisingly juicy and savoury. The acidity of this white wine from Capçanes is excellent, the texture is detailed and layered, and the wine has a long finish with a deliciously salty note. 

Our personal opinion

A peculiar and substantial white wine, 3/VB Blanc de Negres de Capçanes 2013 (also known as Vimblanc) has depth, balance and originality.
