Planots 2009 Crianza Cellar Cal Pla

Priorat 2009 -Vibrant dark crimson colour with hints of purple, an intriguing, toasted and mature fruit cake nose with mineral notes, plums, liquorice and chocolate

Immensely full and powerful on the palate, great concentration of mature fruit from very low yields. A richness of flavours, balsamic, eucalyptus, envelopes the senses, reminiscent of the aromatic herbs and with an enduring and memorable finish.

La Planots is Joan Sangenis’s oldest vineyard. This exceptional wine is produced from 100 year old Garnacha (60%) and Cariñena (40%) vines and aged 14 months in new French Allier. Tiny yields of 200/300 gr per vine only allow a total production of 1200 bottles from 2 hectares of land.

Joan Sangenis, the enormously talented, young owner/oenologist did not study winemaking at University or Oenological school, rather experience and research are his personal University. He spends 10 months in the vineyards and 2 months in the cellar, explaining that great wines come from great grapes and not great hands. Maintaining healthy vineyards with weeks of ploughing ensures that they never have to use any chemical herbicides or pesticides
