Details

This biodynamic Spanish white wine is produced in the southern Catalonian region of Conca de Barberà from 15 to 20-year-old vines planted in clay-limestone soils.

Crafted by the Escoda-Sanahuja winery, one of the pioneers of Catalonia's vibrant natural wine scene, Els Bassotets is a blend of 70% Macabeo and 30% Chenin.

Meticulously harvested and vinified, the organically grown grapes were fermented in concrete vats using only indigenous yeasts.

After that, Els Bassotets 2018 was aged for 8 months in stainless steel tanks. Before bottling, this natural wine was neither filtered nor clarified.

Because of its nicely untamed character, this no added sulfites wine greatly acknowledges aeration.

Decant this white wine from Conca de Barberà 1 hour before drinking.

Drink through 2022.

Additional Information

Appearance

The white wine Els Bassotets has a pale golden colour with some greenish tinges.

Nose

Tight and closed at the beginning, this blend of Macabeo and Chenin slowly opens to notes of ripe white fruit, citrus, peaches, white flowers, evolving into hints of dry fruit, toast, baked bread and fresh yeasts.

Palate

Pleasant, fruity and excitingly wild. This natural white wine by the Escoda-Sanahuja winery has an uplifting character and a great acidity. Complex notes of ripe white fruit, underbush, flowers and yeasts. Long, savoury finish.

Our personal opinion

Uncompromisingly original Els Bassotets 2018 drinks great without food, and also pairs excellently with pasta, rice and fish recipes.

  1. Escoda review by Bassotets on 10/21/2017
    Value

    Being a natural wine geek, I've been following Escoda-Sanahuja winery over the last years. The winery has consistently honed its winemaking procedures over the years. This is the best proof. An unimpeachable no-sulphur added Chenin.
