Details

The new vintage of Bru de Verdú 14 is crafted from a blend of Syrah and Tempranillo.

Made in the northern Catalan region of Costers del Segre, the grapes of this Spanish red wine were meticulously harvested, destemmed and gently crushed.

After that, they were fermented at a controlled temperature with daily stirrings.

Then this wine produced by Celler Cercavins was transferred into new and 2nd year French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 14 months.

Finally, Bru de Verdu 14 2015 was blended and rested for a further 30 days in stainless steel tanks.

Decant this red wine from Costers del Segre 30 minutes before drinking.

Drink over the next 4 years.

 

Additional Information

Appearance

The wine Bru de Verdú 14 has an intense cherry colour with a garnet rim.

Nose

Complex and characterful, this Crianza red wine by Celler Cercavins smells of prunes, with hints of Tahitian vanilla, toast and hazelnuts, intertwined with aromas of spices, chocolate, balsam and tobacco.

 

Palate

This blend of Tempranillo and Syrah is well-structured and fresh, with notes of red fruit alongisde remembrances of wet undergrowth, spices, cocoa and flowers over a mineral background. Bru de Verdú 14 has some ripe tannins, a crisp acidity and long finish.

 

Our personal opinion

Substantial and nicely crafted, Bru de Verdú 14 2015 proves again than the Catalan region of Costers del Segre is becoming an increasingly interesting wine producing area.

    Nice value. The wine is well made and right now it drinks excellently.

  2. Bru de verdu review by Incognito on 11/9/2017
    Value

    Produced by a not much talked-about winery, this is actually very good, and the blend works stupendously. Lots of fruit, a clear profile, smooth texture.
