- Celler Cecilio L'Espill Priorat 2010 Product #29994 (In Stock)
The best way to communicate just how stunning the 2010 L'Espill is? It delivers a very high fraction of the famous Clos Mogador ($100 wine) and half the cost. An old-vine (50+ years) blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Carignan, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon that spends 20-25 days in the fermenter and then 12 months in French oak. At 5 years old, it's starting to show itself, with focused, intense, aromas of spiced blackberry and roasted meat and undertones of warm Priorat slate. It's just as focused and intense on the palate, where the spice, black fruit, charred meat, and hot stone notes repeat and keep on pumping out over fine-grained tannins and dusty crushed stone minerality. A powerful beauty to enjoy for a decade or two.
