“The aromatics here are incredible, it's intoxicating and perfumed with notes of violets, lilies and blood orange peel, really showy, elegant and complex. They believe this is where they want to go with this vineyard and wine, they picked the grapes at exactly the right moment, full of flavors and aromas while keeping the alcohol relatively low. This has a beautiful tannic structure, that seems fragile but with lots of energy. Incredibly elegant and harmonious. 1,050 bottles were filled in May 2020.” 97 points, Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate Read more

Jamie Goode - Wine Anorak

“This is their top wine, and it’s utterly compelling… so finely wrought and elegant, with textured liqueur-like red cherry and berry fruit on the palate, some fine sappy notes, and liqourice and pepper notes. It has good acidity, a red fruit core, and a fine spicy finish with some liveliness. Astonishing elegance, with the sleek fruit hiding some substantial tannic structure. There are layers of finely interleaved flavour here, with amazing complexity despite the smoothness and elegance. Quite profound, with the elegance and complexity and texture of the very finest Burgundy, morphed with the very finest Châteauneuf (think Rayas, or Bonneau). This should have a long life ahead of it. It also has amazing drinkability.” 97 points, Jamie Goode, Wineanorak.com

Tasting Notes

In 2015 Dominik Huber finally managed to purchase his beloved Les Manyes vineyard in Priorat’s northwest Escaladei canton. Part of this purchase was an adjacent four-hectare parcel of Garnacha vines in the DO Montsant. Lying a few hundred metres from Les Manyes, the vineyard is called Els Montalts and the terroir here is almost identical. High in the Montsant ranges, the vines here are located at a remarkable altitude of 800 metres. As we have seen, Les Manyes produces a Priorat Garnacha like no other. It’s the antithesis of Priorat’s blockbuster image, with the intensity, finesse and transparency of a great, Grand Cru Burgundy. El Montalts is cut from the same cloth. Taking its name from the local terminology for the vineyard’s red clay and gypsum soils, Guix Vermell was planted with Garnacha some 75 years ago. It is biodynamically farmed, and Peceric and Huber only use the finest selection of fruit from the site to produce between just 1,000 and 1,600 bottles per vintage. Guix Vermell is whole-bunch fermented in Italian terracotta amphorae for about seven to 10 days, then lightly pressed and returned to the same vessels for six months. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered at 13%.
