Details

A high-altitude, single varietal Spanish red wine produced by Celler Batlliu de Sort, Biu de Sort Negre is made from grapevines grown at an altitude of 850 metres above sea level in Pallars Sobirà (Lleida), northern Catalonia.

Belonging to the DO Costers del Segre, this single varietal Pinot Noir grows in decomposed slate soils under a rather benign climate.

Fermented in stainless steel tanks with frequent punch-downs and pump-overs, the wine subsequently completed malolactic fermentation in the same deposits.

Finally, Biu de Sort Negre 2018 was aged in stainless steel containers for over a period of 10 months.

Drink this high-altitude red wine until 2024.

Additional Information

Appearance

The red wine Biu de Sort has a clean, pale, medium-low cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

Nose

A wine with a well-defined varietal character, this varietal Pinot Noir from Costers del Segre exhibits pristine aromas of red berries and flowers, combined with deep, intense remembrances of aromatic herbs, menthol, balsam and some mineral undertones.

Palate

Fresh, linear and full of tension, Biu de Sort by Celler Batlliu de Sort is both easy to drink and very lively. Remembrances of juicy red berries, flowers and undergrowth, crisp acidity and ripe tannins. Long, savoury finish.

Our personal opinion

An unlikely Pinot Noir from the Catalan Pyrenées, Biu de Sort Negre 2018 is nevertheless an excellent one.

    One of the few Spanish -maybe I should say Catalan- Pinots that really works. And a very fine price it has. Light and refreshing, with forest berries and a savoury, crisp ending.
