Harvested between late September and the beginning of October, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks.
After that, De Muller Legítim 2016 was aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels. Finally, it was aged for some months in the bottle before its release.
Decant this red wine from Priorat 30 minutes before drinking.
Drink until 2023.
The red wine from Priorat De Muller Legítim has a medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a ruby rim.
This intense Crianza red wine smells of red berries and jammy black fruit, aromas nuanced by some delicate toasted hints, remembrances of clove and vanilla, a dash of black pepper and some mineral undertones, Priorat's trademark.
Meaty and velvety, this red wine by De Muller has a substantial structure and a good definition. Ripe black and red fruit, spices and Mediterranean garrigue over a mineral background. Crunchy, lively tannins, good acidity and long, assertive finish.
|Our personal opinion||
An amazingly priced Priorat, De Muller Legítim 2016 pairs very well with meat and game dishes.
