Vi negre Finca Butarós del Celler Mas Llunes

First name

FINCA BUTARÓS comes from a vineyard planted at the end of the 19th century on slate land in Paratge de Butarós, at the northern end of the terme of Garriguella in the direction of Vilamaniscle.

The varieties that predominate there are the Carignan and the Grenache black, although we also find strains of white varieties in between.

The tree that decorates the label is a century-old server that is in the middle of the estate and that over the years has grown inclined to the effects of the Tramuntana.

Elaboration

The grapes were carefully selected manually by harvesting each of the varieties separately at their optimal time of ripening.

Fermentation was also carried out separately in refrigerated stainless tanks at a temperature of 24/26oC with a single daily racking and decubing at 30-40 days from the start of fermentation depending on the variety.

Once the malolactic fermentation was finished, the two varieties were assembled and aged for 1 year in French oak barrels and then 3 years in the bottle.

Varieties

Carignan (60%), Grenache black (40%)

Tasting note

Complex aroma of spices and black fruits, nutmeg, coffee, cocoa, cloves, licorice, toast, plums and light balsamic notes. In the mouth we find a lot of ripe fruit, it is unctuous, fine, wide and has a soft and pleasant tannin.
