The wine

L'Antagonique is a wine that will raise a smile. We smile because Marc and Adriá never fail to amaze us, with wines that are original but easy to understand as well; low production wines yet even so within everyone's reach; wines made with respect, passion and also with and for enjoyment. Well done!

Inevitably, a wine such as this attracts attention due to its lovely, attractive, artistic label, but all the more so when we read on the back label that it is a blanc de noirs, made from 60% Garnacha Negra and 30% Cariñena, with white grapes making up only 10% of the blend! Looking at the colour in the glass, this is hard to believe: it is virtually transparent and very clean: only in the middle does it appear straw-yellow, with no real intensity, but on swirling it round, its density and abundant tears make us aware that there is plenty of substance and this will be a wine with some body.

L'Antagonique is an aromatic white. It releases velvety aromas and we cannot help but recall its “cousin” L'Inconscient, a red which regales us with a delightful rose fragrance: here the scent is of white flowers and stone white fruits, notes of raw almonds and calcareous rock, a refreshing combination. Once still in the glass, it again reminds us of L'Insconscient, because aromas appear of red and black fruit, although not of the fruit juice but that wild berry aroma which lingers on our hands when we pick fresh blackberries out in the countryside. These aromas have depth, but always portray a white profile. The freshness revives on swirling the glass and the terrain’s minerality also makes its presence known.

On the palate it is glyceric, it flows easily, it has good body, a vibrant acidity and is altogether balanced, rounded and complete; a wine too that is truly gastronomic, which leaves a wonderful flavour in the mouth, a creamy mixture of white fruit and forest berry fruits. L'Antagonique, where opposites come together.
