Details

This is the third vintage of this little-known, almost confidential Catalan red wine.

Plini de Laurona 2012 is a blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah coming from old vines located in some privileged terroirs at the heart of the Montsant DO.

Celler Laurona, incidentally, has in its team two outstanding oenologists: Fernando Zamora-one of the owners of L'Espectacle, Montsant's mightiest red wine-, and the one and only René Barbier, creator of Clos Mogador.

After a manual harvest, following by a careful selection of the grapes, the wine was aged for 15 months in 500-litre French oak barrels.

Drink until 2022+.

Decant 1 hour before drinking.

Very limited production.

 

Additional Information

Appearance

Medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

 

Nose

Wild berries, such as redcurrants and blackberries, underpinned by some spicy and balsamic notions, a layer of Mediterranean garrigue, and hints of cocoa, violets and aromatic herbs. Let it breathe, because the wine really improves after 1 hour.

 

Palate

Superbly crafted, showing a supple, smooth body and a confident elegance. Bold tannins and an excellent acidity, features that promise a long life ahead. Complex finish, with predominantly mineral and balsamic nuances.

 

Our personal opinion

Plini de Laurona 2012 is an age-worthy Montsant that deserves to be better known by winelovers.
