Details

Les Cousins l'Antagonique 2014 is the second vintage of this highly peculiar white wine from Priorat.

The wine is a Blanc de noirs, that is, it is made from red grapes vinified in order to produce a white wine. The blend is composed of 60% Grenache, 30% Carignan, and tiny portions of White Grenache, Trepat, Macabeo and Escanyavella. 

This white wine produced by Les Cousins Marc & Adrià, two members of the distinguished Pérez family from Priorat, was aged for 4 months in used French oak barrels.

Les Cousins l'Antagonique is an utterly original, unexpectedly cool white wine from the-sometimes-imposing Priorat region.

 

Additional Information

Appearance

Very bright, clean, straw yellow colour with some greenish tinges.

Nose

Vivid aromas of white roses, jasmine and camomile, alongside notes of ripe pears and apples. On the background, remembrances of blackberries, raw almonds, biscuits, spices and a dash of minerality.

Palate

Fresh and smooth, with a substantial body and a refreshing acidity. Flowers, ripe white fruit, aromatic herbs and deep mineral undertones. Long, complex finish.

Our personal opinion

Les Cousins l'Antagonique 2014 is an exceedingly interesting white wine. Complex and drinkable.

    Go search Priorat whites. They're unlike any other white wines anywhere.

  2. Antagon review by Kalós on 10/23/2017
    Value

    I'm an admirer of Priorat white wines. The minerality of the soil gives the white grapes a unique flavour. And when the winemakers know how to keep the freshness of the wine, like in this Les Cousins Antagonique, the result is outstanding.
