Celler Laurona, founded in 1999, started as a joint venture between Christopher Cannan, from fine wine traders Europvin and well known winemaker René Barbier (Clos Mogador, Priorat). The celler is located in the municipal district of Falset in the heart of the wine region known as Montsant in the province of Tarragona. Its vineyards are scattered in different parcels within the denomination of Origin Montsant; La Figuera where the native Grenache vines over 50 years of age are sourced from, whilst the vineyards of Falset, Darmós and Masroig, provide with the newer planting of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.
Today at Laurona the wines are made by the winemakers; René Barbier and Fernando Zamora (professor at the University of Rovira i Virgili), both being profound experts in the region with a wide experience which guarantees an excellent success. The wines are made using a careful process of winemaking, in which long macerations are of prime importance as too are the malolactic fermentation and ageing in new French oak barrels. The wines of Celler Laurona are meant to be a true reflection of tradition and territory, with a distinctive Mediterranean character.
Tasting Notes: Very expressive aromatically, deep red fruit and floral aromas, Asian spices, and liquorice notes. Fresh, warm and very pleasant on the palate with a lovely velvety texture. It has good depth, lively fruit and rich spicy flavours and a spicy complex finish.
Notes: It will show its full potential with some airing or decanting. Drink now and over the next decade.
