Gran Buig

Description

This wine represents the best vintages of Mas d’en Gil: 1998, 2004. An intense Bigarreau cherry red, this wine expresses the purest essence of the old vine Garnatxa (Grenache) and Carinyena (Carignan) vineyards of the estate. Intense and complex with an aromatic mix of red fruit and black pureed fruit with mineral notes. In the mouth, this wine is luxurious, wrapping the tongue with velvety tannins. Smooth and bursting with aromatic sensations and a long, lingering and very elegant finish.

Origins:

Made only during exceptional vintages, based on three vineyard plots normally used as a blend in Clos Fontà. Buig is the name of one of the selected vineyards, whilst the adjective “gran” is related to great vintages and wines known as “grand cru”.
