La Planots is Sangenis’s oldest vineyard. This exceptional
wine is produced from 100 year old Garnacha
(60%) and Cariñena
(40%) vines and aged 14 months in new French Allier. Tiny
yields of 200/300 gr per vine only allow a total production
of 1200 bottles from 2 hectares of land. Vibrant dark crimson
colour with hints of purple, an intriguing, toasted and mature
fruit cake nose with mineral notes, mountain herbs, liquorice
and chocolate. Immensely full and powerful on the palate,
great concentration of mature fruit from very low yields.
A richness of flavours, balsamic, eucalyptus, envelopes the
senses, reminiscent of the aromatic herbs and llicorella (slate)
soil typical of the area. Grand structure and velvety tannins
with an enduring and memorable finish. A sensational Priorat
wine that may be laid down for 5 or more years.
