Terroir al Limit Les Tosses Priorat 2011
The 2011 Les Tosses is a Carinena from a single vineyard, their Grand Cru, produced with the grapes from a steep slope with slate soil at 650 meters altitude. The wine aged in a foudre, managed to handle the extreme heat of 2011 very well and shows very a fresh, floral and elegant nose, compact, with subtle aromas of violets and blueberries. Very aromatic (pomegranate?), it has a creamy texture with some spices and a medium-bodied palate with round tannins, very fresh, with very good acidity and balance. Somehow it feels fresher than the 2010 version of this wine. A (powerful) Carinena that whispers, a very impressive elegant and authentic Priorat. This is a tour de force for Carinena in a warm vintage. Amazing! Drink 2015-2022.
