Grans Muralles, DO Conca de Barberà — 2019

where to buy
  • Introduction

    • The Grans Muralles vineyard is planted at the foot of the Cistercian Wall that protected the Poblet Monastery during the Mercenary Wars. Vine fruit has been cultivated on the site since the 13th century. The current vineyard was replanted 20 years ago, resurrecting rare varieties thought to be nearly extinct. Hallmark characters of the lesser-known Querol and Garró grapes provoke rustic layers of bay leaf, balsamic, and cracked black peppercorn.

  • Grans Muralles, DO Conca de Barberà — 2018 – Wine Advocate – 96 Points

    “It is very aromatic and floral, expressive, fruit-driven, elegant and quite cool, as the mountains stop the warm winds from the Mediterranean. It has very good freshness. Really very good, the finest vintage so far and one of the highlights of the tasting.”

  • Grans Muralles, DO Conca de Barberà — 2018 – Wine Spectator – 93 Points

    “An elegant, medium- to full-bodied red, with pure flavors of baked black plum and raspberry underscored by rich notes of toast, smoke, espresso and herbes de Provence. Shows supple, well-knit and integrated tannins with a creamy edge, while the finish is long, fresh and spiced.”

  • Grans Muralles, DO Conca de Barberà — 2018 – James Suckling

    “Juicy and refined with lots of finesse here. Complex aromas of berries, chili chocolate, plums, flowers and mineral, with some cigar box and truffle. Medium to full body, but ethereal and elegant with streamlined concentration. Sleek, silky, precise and very long."
