Product Description

Vi d'altura. The Les Manyes vineyard is located at a remarkable altitude of 800m (the highest in Priorat) and is now about 54 years old. The vineyard is only 1.4ha and is planted almost exclusively with Garnatxa. This is not the only difference with Les Tosses. The latter is planted to Cariñena on pure llicorella slate while the Les Manyes site adds elements of quartz, limestone and clay into the mix. In 2010 Les Manyes is an intensely aromatic wine, full of majestic grace. It's the kind of wine that was made for the term "sexy time!" (as coined by one of our finest producers). Indeed, if we had to put forward a single wine that symbolised the antithesis of Priorat's bodybuilder image, this would be it. It teases you with shades of Château Rayas in the vividly fresh raspberry aroma, a hint of the sapid, umami character of grand cru Gevrey and alludes to the exotic spice of fine Barolo. And yet it is high-grown Priorat through and through. The purity, deliciousness and length of flavour is pure genius.

"Glass-staining ruby. Heady aromas of candied raspberry, potpourri, spicecake and smoky minerals. Deep and velvety, with powerful, palate-staining red berry preserve and floral pastille flavors given spine by zesty minerality. Smooth and seamless on the sweet, potent finish, which refuses to let go of the palate."
95 Points Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar issue 164
