Product Description
Details

Since its first vintage, the red wine from Priorat Les Cousins L'Inconscient deservedly gained the reputation of being one of the best values produced in the region.

Lively and vibrant, this Spanish red wine is produced by Marc and Adrià Pérez, two members of the distinguished Pérez family of winemakers, owners of Mas Martinet.

This red wine is made from a blend of 30% Carignan, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.

Harvested by hand and fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks for 15 to 20 days, the wine was then aged in 7,000-litre wooden vats for 6 months.

Finally, Les Cousins L'Inconscient 2018, which was vinified in the Cims de Porrera facilities, was aged for a further 3 months in stainless steel tanks prior to its release.

Drink this red wine from Priorat until 2024.

Appearance

Nose

This red wine by Marc & Adrià Pérezis very expressive. Some juicy aromas of red berries, alongside some creamy and toasted notes, a dash of aromatic herbs and subtle mineral undertones.

Palate

Light-bodied and extremely drinkable. Red berries, some mineral hints and some suggestions of wet earth and spices. Ripe tannins, well-balanced acidity and great freshness. L'Inconscient from Priorat by Les Cousins Marc & Adrià has a long, uplifting finish with some delicate mineral remembrances.

Our personal opinion

As Uncomplicated as it is authentic, Les Cousins L'Inconscient 2018 is a drinkable Priorat that provides excellent value for money.
