Details for Tros Negre 2016
Bottle size and vintage
Tros Negre is a single varietal Garnacha, a wine with a great balance between powerfulness and refinement, which is also a fine exponent of the exceptional qualities attributable to certain Montsant vineyards. Had we been in Burgundy, we would have had it down as a Grand Cru, and the same for its partner Tros Blanc, due to its undeniable personality and the specific nature of its place of origin.
Tros Negre comes from a tiny parcel (less than a hectare) with pre-phylloxera vines aged over 95 years old, planted at an altitude of 200 metres on a calcareous soil and facing north-east. Of all the estate's parcels, it is the Tros Negre de la Notaria, as the vineyard is known, which offers the most shining example of that expressivity, combining variety and soil, and endowing the wine with a character all of its own.

Tros Blanc and Tros Negre were his first two cuvées, two single varietals of Garnacha Blanca and Garnacha Tinta, followed shortly after b...
