Reviews For This Wine


 
Wine Advocate | 96

The flagship cuvee, the 2001 Vall Llach, was fashioned from 65-year old Carignan vines (50%), Merlot (35%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%). It spent 17 months in new French oak prior to bottling. This deep ruby/purple-colored offering exhibits great intensity, a beautifully textured mid-palate, and a 45-second finish. Pure notes of minerals, raspberries, flowers, and black fruits cascade over the palate in this multidimensional 2001.

Rich and powerful. There's ripe black fruit, plenty of chocolate-scented oak and masses of tannin in this structured red. It's a big, solid, SUV of a wine, but has balance and concentration, and will improve with age. 75 cases imported.

About This Producer


Vall Llach is a fantastically successful venture founded in 1990 by singer Luis Llach and notary Enric Costa in the Priorat DOCa in the village of Porrera. The Vall Llach (1998 was the first vintage) is from nearly 100-year-old vines and is a blockbuster m�lange of Cari�ena, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Embruix is an amazingly rich, harmonious blend of Cari�ena, Cabernet, Grenache, Merlot and Syrah with a lovely tone of red fruit adding to its character. Idus, their third blend, is also focused around the traditional Cari�ena variety with a mix of New World grapes.

In addition to making careful grape purchases from nearby farms, Vall Llach owns several old estates that grow 60 to 90-year-old Cari�ena and Garnacha vines. During the '90s, the winery planted Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah vines to complement their old vines and blending strategy. The estate aims to find a balance between tradition and cutting-edge technology in its production, from grape cultivation to the wine in the glass.
