After Acústic Celler in Montsant and Ritme Celler in Priorat, Albert Jané, originally of Celler Jané Ventura in Penedès, surprises once again with his latest and most recent personal project. This time, he is back to his origins and delights us with two white wines made 100% from autochthone varieties, of which he is a strong believer.
Gran Autòcton is the big brother, more serious and structured than the Autòcton. It is a white wine, 100% ecologic and made from the older, autochthonous vines that are between 50 and 90 years old. These vines are grown at Finca Mas Vilella, an old, traditional Catalan winery from the XVI century in the Baix Penedés, and at the Alt Camp in the province of Tarragona, vines overlooking the Mediterranean sea from the hills of the majestic Sierra del Montmell.
Fermented in 300 and 400-litre French oak barrels and clay amphora, where it has spent 10 months with its fine lees with weekly batonnage, a wine of great length marked by its elegance, refinement, and distinction.
Aromas redolent of Mediterranean herbs, thyme, and fennel, deeply fruited aromas, peach and mature pineapple, combined with an excellent fine creaminess from the big barrel, good fruit weight on the palate that lingers on the finish,a fresh mouthfeel, well-structured, powerful, and a very elegant and seductive finish.
Note: A white wine to enjoy now and that will continue to evolve in bottle during the next few years.
