In the previous post we discussed the gastronomic part of these wines, today we want to talk about how the nature of the terrain affects the final result of the wine.
Clos Pons winery has vineyards spread between l’Albagés and La Pobla de Cérvoles, between about 500 and 700 meters high and next to the Serra de la Llena, which separates the coast from the inland. This separation makes the climate extreme, with a very high temperature in summer but with cold nights and a cold and humid winter. In addition, the soil on which the vineyard is located is clay-limestone, poor in organic matter, which gives the wines a remarkable concentration and minerality, balanced with the acidity and woody notes of these wines.
Our best known red wine:
Made with Grenache, Syrah and Tempranillo, this wine transports us to the Garrigues terroir. The name itself binds us to this territory, Alges is a contraction of l’Albagés, the name of the village where the vineyard is located.
Extreme climatic conditions and low yields are reflected on Alges, a wine with a deep, intense color which displays powerful aromas of ripe fruit and elegant oak notes.On the palate is concentrated, structured and plenty of character. It has a remarkable bouquet with red fruit jam, liquorice and spicy notes over a mineral background. Its finish is lingering, rich and silky.
