Poblets del Montsant TINTO (80% Garnacha, 10% Carignan, 10% Syrah) Montsant, Spain
|Availability:||In stock (2)|
Brought to you by a couple of the exquisite minds behind Clos Figueras, Anne Cannan—daughter to wine exporter Christopher Cannan, and Miquel Compte, comes this passion project located in Montsant, just outside of Priorat. The vines are sourced from the Pinyana area of Montsant, where Miquel’s family owned vines, a place of rustic beauty with verdant forests covering jagged rocky formations. It is easy to see what inspired this project. Miquel is in charge of viticulture while Anne is in charge of winemaking. Their focus is red and white Grenache from old vines; French in style, but distinctly Montsant.
This is almost like a baby Priorat red. Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah come together from vines around 40 years in age. Ageing is completed for seven months in French and American oak casks. Paying homage to the style of the region, this Montsant is juicy and minerally.
