(2001 Vintage) "The flagship cuvee, the 2001 Vall Llach, was fashioned from 65-year old Carignan vines (50%), Merlot (35%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%). It spent 17 months in new French oak prior to bottling. This deep ruby/purple-colored offering exhibits great intensity, a beautifully textured midpalate, and a 45 second finish. Pure notes of minerals, raspberries, flowers and black fruits cascade over the palate in this multidimensional 2001. Drink over the next 12 years."
The vines, which the winery owns on the outskirts of Porrera, are almost centuries old and produce very low quantities - giving this wine its surprisingly sudective character.
Deep and well structured, this magnificent concentration manifests itself in a rich blend of powerful and original aromas and tastes which combine finesse and harmony. A blend of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah.
