Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its garnet-colored color offers a nose with spicy notes, black fruits, and a floral hint of violet. On the palate, this wine presents a fleshy and balanced attack.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

A portion of this land used to be a part of the old Laurinya, that was given to the Cuixà Abbey by the King of France in 1068; land which later became the King’s vineyards and which produced some of the wines served at the court of the King of Aragon.
