2013 Vall Llach 'Embriux' Priorat
When we tell visitors to our cellars that this wine is based principally on the juice of young plantations, between six to twelve years old, incredulity and admiration are the customary response. This is not without reason. Only careful cultivation, well-managed microproduction, vinification differentiated by variety and estate using low-volume tanks, and above all, the miracle worked by the Priorat region on both the native varieties and on Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes can explain the splendid result: Embruix, Catalan for bewitching. Immediately agreeable, but with a repertoire of powerful gustatory and olfactory refinements, this is a wine that satisfies both the connaisseur and the casual consumer.
