This is the new vintage of Clos Mont-blanc Únic Pinot Noir, a single varietal Spanish red wine produced in a privileged terroir located in the southern Catalan region of Conca de Barberà.
Interestingly, the vineyards are not far from the Cistercian monastery of Poblet, listed as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO.
Harvested by hand and destemmed, fermentation of the wine must was carried out in stainless steel tanks.
Then this red wine of the Clos Mont-Blanc winery was drawn off, transferred into light-toasted French oak barrels and aged for a period of 9 to 12 months.
This Clos Mont-blanc Únic Pinot Noir 2016 will improve in the bottle for the next 4 years.
The red wine Clos Mont-Blanc Únic Pinot Noir has a clean, bright, intense cherry colour with some reddish tinges.
Expressive notes of black fruit, red fruit, spices, aromatic herbs and some mineral undertones. This red wine from Conca de Barberà is very well balanced.
Silky and fresh, with the trademark Pinot Noir elegance. First we perceive some mineral hints, immediately followed by generous notes of fruit, sweet spices and some toasted remembrances. This red wine by Clos Mont-Blanc has a good acidity, sweet tannins and long, complex finish.
