Red Wine Camí Pesseroles 2016
Availability: In stock
Simply put, Camí Pesseroles is one of the best, most radical wines produced in Priorat. Not surprisingly, this Spanish red wine was exquisitely crafted by Sara & Josep Lluis Pérez, daughter and father, members of one the most respected wine families in the region.
Uncompromisingly terroir-oriented, this organic red wine is a single estate wine made from vineyards located on the old road from Gratallops to Porrera, the spiritual core of Priorat.
Harvested by hand, the grapes were separately pre-macerated and then fermented together in new wooden vats. After that, this wine of Mas Martinet Viticultors was aged in 30% new 225-litre French oak barrels for 20 months.
Finally, this red wine from Priorat was aged for a further months in the bottle before its commercial release.
Drink Camí Pesseroles 2016 until 2030. Decant a minimum of 2 hours before drinking.
Production of only 1,500 bottles.
The red wine Camí Pesseroles has a clean, very bright, high cherry robe with a violet rim.
Mindbendingly complex, this Crianza red wine begins with some notes of raspeberries, figs, mulberries and kirsch, combined with remembrances of spices, cocoa powder, lavender, rose petals, carob beans, dry earth, leather and Mediterranean underbush over a deep, complex mineral background. A fabulously expressive blend of Grenache and Carignan.
Information-rich, both confident and compressed, this wine by Mas Martinet is so full of niceties and subtleties that it really needs some years to unfurl. Garrigue, mineral, first-class fruit and spices. Bold tannins and spectacular acidity. The wine conveys a sense of place in a sort of immediate and unmistakable way. Memorable finish.
