Priorat Sangenis Vaque 2002

Member Review by Fenderbaum:

2007 Reserva. I really lliked this one. Liqourice, woody nose. Extremely well structured and balanced on the palate. Hints of plum and dark chocolate with a very pleasant oak notes - but not overpowering. Even as I'm typing this there are other subtleties coming through on the finish. A nicely complex Priorat. Highly recommended, especially for the price.

In 1978 Pere SANGENÍS and Conxita VAQUÉ started to plant vines in the lands of Pere in Porrera, D.O.PRIORAT. We know that this lands has been in the maternal side of his family –MONLLEÓ- since before 1700, and on which vines were primarily cultivated. At the beginning of the century bottling was attempted in some houses of the PRIORAT, however this project collapset as they were times of social and economic conflict. In 1979 Pere and Conxita began to produce in the bodega in Plaza Catalunya, the old cellar of Josep Simó, Conxita’s grandfather, who was a winemaker as well as wine merchant from 1886 until his death. Is in this cellar that Pere SANGENÍS has produced our wines during these years combining tradition with the new ways. Recently María and Núria Sangenís have joined our team who, alongside Pere, share the responsibility of producing our great wines. The vineyards are located in the district of Porrera within the Priorat Qualified Designation of Origin, on terraced hillsides, formed by the famous “llicorella” (slaty schist land). Very poor land combined with a dry climate ( 550 mm) provides minimal production and therefore maximum quality. Read less

    At the first glass I found this wine very nice and spicy, but also a little bit closed and slightly rough in the taste. But I gave it one and a half hour on the bottle to breathe, and then it opened up, and turned out to be amazing. It has lovely notes of mature cherries, blackcurrants, cigarbox and a nice smoky flavour as well. I am completely amazed how long the taste of this wine lasts. It just keeps on forever. And although the alcoholcontent is a bit high, 15%, it doesn't taste of alcohol at all. Instead it has a wonderful and noble bitternes, that gives the wine a good structure. 95/100 points
