- Celler Cecilio Negre Priorat 2009 Product #25693 (In Stock)
Always rich and complex, Negre has just a touch more volume, intensity, and power in the warm 2009 vintage. There’s plenty of generous fruit and spice here, but it’s the stony mineral character that makes it special. Drink it now with roasted or grilled meat while a few bottles gain more complexity and definition in cellar for a decade.
“Celler Cecilio is the oldest registered winery in Priorat. The 2009 Negre is the same blend as the 2008 (50% Garnacha, 30% Carinena, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon) and received the identical elevage (fermented with native yeasts and aged for 12 months in seasoned French oak). Reflecting the better vintage, it offers up a racy bouquet of cherry blossoms, incense, black cherry, black raspberry, and lavender. More structured and concentrated than the 2008, it will benefit from 1-2 years of additional bottle age and provide enjoyment through 2019.”Wine Advocate 91 points
