Álvaro Palacios Les Aubaguetes 2017

Álvaro Palacios Les Aubaguetes 2017

In this third vintage, as in the previous two editions, the grapes come from an old 1.34-hectare vineyard planted in 1901 in a north-facing coast in Bellmunt de Priorat. A shady place planted with Grenache, Carignan and white varieties on a steep slope, surrounded by holm oaks and pine forests at a low altitude ranging between 230 and 280 metres. A site with a marked Mediterranean climate cooled from high temperatures thanks to the sea breeze that provides a cool moisture that softens temperatures. In this 2017 vintage the plot was harvested on two consecutive days, on October 15 and 16, a week before in 2016. Yields of 12.68 hl / ha and a pH of 3.4 have been obtained. The nose is even deeper than Dofí. On the palate it is another dimension, with a lower perception of body and an extraordinary refinement. Fine while wide and deep. With elegance and presence, a unique wine. Production of 2,200 bottles.
