92 Decanter points for our La Nit de les Garnatxes LLicorella!

21/12/2017

The year ends with great news for the Celler de Capçanes team, getting 92 Decanter points is a good reason for celebration!
 Andrew Jefford writes about our four different Garnachas of the Terroir after his visit to our wine region.

"This is one of the Celler de Capçanes four single-soil type Garnatxa wines (the three others are Limestone, Clay and Sand), and I recommend them all highly; the nuances between them are subtle but genuinely palpable.  It was, in the end, the depth and meaty savour of the Llicorella (slate) wine that put it in first place for me, but the other three are just a point or two behind.  The wine grown on clay had great purity and clarity of fruit; that on sand is a lighter in style but no less concentrated, with considerable grace and charm.  The limestone wine has the sweetest fruit, but there’s poised acidity and textured depth to keep it lively.  All four wines are brilliantly packaged with elegant labels and a paper wrapper with some of the viticultural background told in cartoon style (in English); all four sum up the poised, juicy yet innately complex appeal of Garnatxa from the Ebro zone of southern Montsant very well.  Wholly recommended. 92p."
