Review

Acusp is a fresh wine, considering the altitude at which the vineyards are situated, as well as being floral and fruity; it also exhibits spicy notes from its ageing in barrel, and proves a fine wine for cellaring.

NOTE: This wine has been neither filtered nor stabilised and therefore precipitation may appear. We recommend decanting.

The full 100% of this wine has undergone malolactic fermentation in barrel.

Silky smooth, full bodied

Lovely fullness, round and ripe, great mouth feel. I discovered this win in a Barcelona restaurant and look forward to many years of happy drinking.

Interesante apuesta por la Pinot Noir en Cataluña.

Seguiré la evolución de este vino ahora que poco a poco la Pinot Noir va haciendo progreso en España. Rústico, con mucho cuerpo y no tan elegante como me hubiese gustado pero es un vino serio.

Por suerte no es francés. Una ganga

Un Pinot Noir de primera a muy buen precio. Esta bodega y este enólogo no tienen desperdicio. Todo lo tocan bien.

Un pinot noir exceptionnel

Cette cuvée 2015 est un véritable trésor caché. Découvert dans une bonne table à Gérone. On est surpris par la richesse de ses saveurs et une tenue en bouche exceptionnelle pour un pinot noir. Vraiment une belle découverte. J'ai aussi goûté une cuvée 2014, il faut avouer que la 2015 est vraiment au dessus du lot.
