Product Description
Details

From the DO Montsant, Boig per Tu is an interesting Spanish red wine produced by Celler Vinyes Domènech.

It is made from a blend Grenache, coming from 20-year-old vines, and Samsó (Carignan) coming from 50-year-old vines.

Traditionally vinified in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature, Boig per Tu 2017 was then aged for 6 months in French oak barrels prior to its bottling.

Incidentally, the of name of this red wine from Montsant - which translates as "Crazy for you" - comes from a, ahem, slightly cheesy Catalan pop song which made a big hit in the 90s, and which is still very popular in the country.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Boig Per Tu has a very bright, clean, intense, medium-high ruby-coloured robe with a purple rim.

Nose

Intense aromas of ripe berries, aromatic herbs and garrigue. This red wine by Vinyes Domènech also evokes some mineral remembrances, dim toasted notes and spicy notions.

Palate

Fresh and pleasant, this blend of Grenache and Samsó from Montsant has a very good acidity, ripe tannins and a smooth body. The wine fills the palate with flavours of red berries and notions of menthol, underbrush and toast. Long finish with some mineral remembrances.

Our personal opinion

Lively and uncomplicated, Boig per Tu 2017 is a modern Montsant that pairs excellently with cold cuts and medium aged cheeses.

Though I find the label awful beyond expression, the wine is actually very good. It has the balance of all of Vinas Domenec wines. Please, upgrade the packaging!! The wine deserves it.
