Cercium 2015 has been awarded the gold medal at the Concourse Mondial de Bruxelles, held from 5 to 7 May 2017. This year’s edition, the 24th of this prestigious award, included more than 9,000 wines from over fifty countries. These wines were blind-tasted by over 320 journalists, buyers, winemakers and sommeliers from all over the word.
Cercium is made mainly from Grenache, blended with smaller amounts of Carignan, Syrah and Cabernet sauvignon, aged in French oak casks for a minimum period of three months.
The grapes are harvested from the vines that grow on slate land at the foots of the Albera mountain range, with significant influence from the area’s Tramontane or northerly wind.
This wine is cherry coloured with a purple rim and a fresh, expressive, intense and fruity aroma, with spicy hints of wild herbs. On the palate it is fresh, large, structured, flavoursome and with plenty of fruit and discrete hints of well integrated oak.
This wine has also been internationally acknowledged this year at the World Wine Awards, organised by the English magazine Decanter, which granted it 91 points and a silver medal.
