Review:

The Cistercian monks arrived in Poblet in the 16th Century, bringing with them expertise and the Pinot Noir grape from their native Burgundy. Several centuries later, around 1980, when the Codorníu Raventós group decided to put the monastery vineyards to good use, the Pinot Noir immediately played an important role, resulting in the winery becoming a pioneer in its production. In the year 2000, when the vines had by then reached maturity, the winery was built alongside the monastery and retained architectural features of the Abbey building that dated back to the 15th Century and which can still be seen today.

Les Masies de Poblet, the Poblet Abbey's Pinot Noir, has arisen from the desire to achieve maximum expression of the varietal's potential in the Conca de Barberà. It's made artisanally and solely in vintages when the grapes reach perfect maturity. It's vinified in stainless steel, with the aim of treating the must very carefully, so as to preserve entirely the grape's aromatic qualities. Straightaway afterwards, it undergoes malolactic fermentation and its subsequent ageing for 12 months in French oak barrels, before being filled without filtration into Burgundy bottles, as only to be expected.

Of very limited production, it appears a cherry colour and with medium density. A delicate and complex nose of wild strawberries, black pepper, Kirsch, undergrowth and charcoal embers. A very fresh entry and a juicy core, with a silky mouthfeel and very good acidity. The floral aromas grow via the retronasal passage, acquiring ever more prominence. Vigorous, juicy, spicy, a touch saline, with dryish tannins and balsamic freshness.

Pheasant / veal stew / wild mushrooms
