Espagne - DOC Priorat

Clos Figueras 2017

€640 Flacon de 10cl

We are taking you to delicious Catalonia with this full-bodied, deep cherry red colored wine, direct from the region of Priorat. Aromatically, this wine is equal in richness to the Mediterranean cuisine, with intense notes of garrigue, cedar and torrefaction, along with a pleasant touch of mintiness. The mouthfeel is full and smooth, with a delicious coffee and cocoa character. This is a generous red with beautifully persistent spiciness that will transport you to sunny lands.

Winemakers

Charlotte & Christopher Cannan

This Spanish estate was acquired in 1997 by Christopher Cannan and his wife Charlotte, on the recommendation of René Barbier of Clos Mogador. Originally, the vineyard was one small parcel that was replanted with Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2000, a second acquisition allowed the estate to grow and today it has 18 hectares of vines. The subsoil, consisting of the famous Llicorella schist, gives the wines a very distinctive mineral character along with great finesse and extraordinary elegance.
