Professional Wine Reviews for Celler Vall Llach Priorat Embruix 2016

Rated 91 by Wine Enthusiast
Bold blackberry, black cherry and raisin aromas are balanced by ingrained minerality, always a good sign for Priorat. A saturated palate fits the house style for Embruix, while toast, coffee, blackberry and prune flavors finish chocolaty but not that long or complex. At 15.5% abv, you should tread carefully with this.
Rated 90 by Vinous Media
Lurid violet color. Pungent, mineral- and spice-tinged dark berry, licorice and violet scents show very good clarity and pick up a smoky nuance with air. Concentrated yet lively in character, offering juicy blackcurrant, boysenberry flavors and a touch of spicecake. The mineral quality comes back on a long, penetrating finish that's given shape by smooth, slow-building and harmonious tannins.

Winery Celler Vall Llach

Region: Cataluna

Spain's stunning coastal region of Catalunya has long since impressed the world with its wide range of excellent wines, the result of a wine history which stretches back to pre-Roman time, and it has been a key stopping point on some of the most ancient wine trade routes on earth. It isn't difficult to understand why Catalunya has had so much influence over the ages – the rich and fertile soils, the heat tempered by Mediterranean breezes, the fine grape varietals which flourish there have all helped establish Catalunya as an important global wine producer. Today, Catalunya is perhaps most famous for its 'methode champenoise' sparkling Cava wines, however, the region's soils support a wide range of grape varietals, and as such, the two hundred or so bodegas in the region produce a large variety of superb wines and wine styles.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
