Aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, truffle, fennel, blueberry, and blackberry are high-class. This is followed by a full-bodied, plush, layered wine with spice notes, chocolate, and toasted almonds putting in an appearance.
Robert Parker"The 2001 Classic is a blend of 85% Carignan (from 60-100 year old vines) and 15% Grenache. Notes of bay leaves, thyme, spice box, graphite, black currants, and cherries are present in this vibrant, cooler climate-styled Priorat. With medium to full body, excellent density, and firm tannin, it should be at its apogee between 2007-2014. It is a stunning wine."
