Product Description

Made by the Domini de la Cartoixa winery from vinyeards situated in the heart of Priorat, Galena Ed. Didier Lourenço is a very interesting Spanish red wine.

A long-time collaborator of the winery, the painter Didier Lourenço is the author of the paintings that illustrate the labels.

This certified organic red wine is made from a complex blend of Grenache, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot collected at their optimal ripening point. Manually harvested and meticulously selected, each variety was separately vinified in stainless steel tanks. 

Gently crushed before malolactic fermentation, this red wine from Priorat was then blended and transferred into 80% French and 20% American oak barrels, where it was aged for 12 months.

After that, Galena 2017 Ed. Didier Lourenço was aged for a further 24 months in the bottle.

Decant this Crianza red wine 1 hour before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine from Priorat Galena Ed. Didier Lourenço is medium purple with a violet rim.


Terroir-driven and very complex, the nose of this blend of Grenache, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is defined by the mineral, "llicorella" notes coming from Priorat's one-of-a-kind slate soils. We also perceive aromas of ripe black fruit, balsam, menthol and a thin, gentle layer of spices. Simply great.


Full-bodied, but also smooth and velvety textured. The wine Didier Lourenço of the Clos Galena winery has a remarkable freshness, real complexity and great tension. Pure notes of fruit, incense, cocoa and spices, a nice mineral background and medium-long finish with some mineral and undergrowth remembrances.

Our personal opinion

Bold and exuberant, Galena 2017 Ed. Didier Lourenço is a success. It makes a great pairing with hearty dishes.

excellent priorat
This Priorat turned out to be a great surprise. Of course, it shows its origin, but in the most attractive way, that is to say, with a deep earthy character, alcohol almost unnoticeable, and an acidity which is simply remarkable.

Compact red wine. Good grip, very mineral and super long finish.
