What does this wine taste like?
L'Inconscient is a fresh, lively wine, but serious, complex and profound as well. The Cariñena grape, which makes up 30% of the wine's coupage, appears rather shy in the glass; the first impression is of a compact nose, somewhat closed, but in due course it does reveal its merits (we recommend opening the bottle at least half an hour before drinking). Once opened up, it begins to release aromas of great elegance, from fruits gathered in the forest (wild fruits, spicy notes) to velvety aromas (rose fragrance). It seems as though the wine is suddenly waking up after a long sleep.
There is a similar reaction on the palate. It starts off tasting a little dry, but in time, it also exhibits both a slight sweetness and strawberry flavours. The fruit is good quality, handled well (short macerations), and the wine is very easy to drink, clean, honest, with a creamy feel but light touch, with mineral and earthy notes, a smooth structure and well-integrated, refreshing acidity.

Very Good Value
This is my second order of this particular wine. I am a big fan of the wine from Priorat and this is a very good wine to start with.....a great value, easy drinking red. Suspect I will be ordering some more very shortly.
My son's favourite
Stands alongside some very expensive Priorat wines. An intense red wine, with body and a lot of fruit with the distinctive Priorat mineral background. Easy to drink, with a long and persistent finish.
A high quality and interesting wine. Good depth, full flavoured, lingers in the mouth. Benefits from opening well before serving.
Beautiful rich wine which went really well with venison dish I cooked for friends. Will definitely be recommending. 5 star.
This is a nice wine for less than 10€! Amazing. It is smooth and easy to drink and pairs well with many things.
