Castell del Remei Gotim Bru 2009

Snapseed

Bodegas Castell del Remei was officially established in 1780, although vineyards probably did exist prior to that, the first documentation of vines planted on the estate coincides with the building of the castle and winery in 1780. The estate is located on the bottom of an ancient seabed [which provides the vineyards with chalky, mineral rich soil] in the La Noguera region of northeastern Spain. Today the estate consists of 400 hectares, 70 of which are vineyards, and an additional 70 hectares belonging to local growers that it manages. With its long history of winemaking, the winery considers itself “one of the most traditional and representative château-type wineries in Spain”.

Dark red-violet in colour with slightly murky aromas of wet leaves and dried fruit. Tart red fruits happily joined softer, earthy elements in the medium body, culminating with dense black cherry notes in the fruity finish. Although pleasant with dinner, this is a little flat and out of focus for my personal taste.
