Details

Coming from the Priorat DO, this Catalan red wine is made from a peculiar blend.

Instead of featuring Grenache and Carignan, the most widely planted grapes in the region, De Muller Les Pusses 2013 is crafted from Merlot and Syrah.

Harvested by hand and meticulously selected, the grapes were fermented and macerated in stainless steel tanks.

Then the wine was transferred into Hungarian oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 12 months.

Finally, this wine of the De Muller winery was aged for a further 6 months in the cellar.

Drink until 2021.

Decant 1 hour before drinking.

Additional Information

Appearance

Intense, high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

Loads of red and black fruit over a delicately floral background. Some toasted overtones and remembrances of garrigue, sweet spices, leather and tobacco leaves.

Palate

Bold and well-balanced with a smooth texture and a savoury character. Liquor-infused fruit, some spicy notions, remembrances of violets, underbush and cocoa. Lively tannins, good freshness and long, spicy finish.

Our personal opinion

This Spanish red wine De Muller Les  Pusses 2013 pairs excellently with game dishes and cured cheeses.

    This is a curious Priorat made from international grapes. The character is still there, but not so local, so to speak. The wine delivers anyhow.

  2. les pussies review by Gus van Damme on 7/20/2018
    Value

    A very interesting red wine from El Priorato. Not as savagely mineral as other wines from the region. More on the elegant side.

    An uncommon Priorat. Of course, you will get the minerality you're looking for. However, the blend will offer you some unexpected things. Definitely worth a buy.
