The otherworldly 2015 Les Manyes is a completely different Garnacha from Priorat, as it comes from a high-altitude vineyard on clay and limestone soils with a total absence of slate. From a cold terroir at 800 meters in altitude, this is very perfumed, floral, exuberant and open, nuanced, elegant and complex. The wine also has structure and concentration but doesn't show it—or just shows it in a subtle way. This has an electric palate with lively, almost citric acidity. Every year the wines seem to be better... Where is the limit? 1,865 bottles were filled after 24 months in a Stockinger foudre, yet the wine shows no oak at all. This is truly outstanding, possibly the best Les Manyes ever. I couldn't help but to think about Rayas when I tasted this... -Luis Gutiérrez

A garnacha that delivers aromatic brilliance and palate focus. Medium body, and a dense palate that builds with powdery tannins and a bright and growing finish. An emotional wine. Drink or hold.

Beautiful notes of ripe strawberries, strawberries, dried flowers, rose garden, hints of dried earth and minerality all emerge from the 2015 Les Manyes.

Beautiful notes of ripe strawberries, strawberries, dried flowers, rose garden, hints of dried earth and minerality all emerge from the 2015 Les Manyes. Made from 100% Garnacha, fermented with no destemming, and aged two years in a single foudre, this medium to full-bodied beauty has a Rayas-like personality, building, fine tannin, not a hard edge to be found, and a great finish. It’s an incredible expression of Garnacha from the Priorat that’s going to drink beautifully for 15+ years. This cuvée is unique in that it comes from more clay soils compared to the more typical Llicorella and schist soils of the region.

Surprisingly fresh and lively for a wine that's spent two years in oak, the raspberry fruit sternly slashed with acidity and some chewy tannins. It holds onto some floral scent and the bitter-sweet delight of orange zest.

Lithe and energetic, this focused red delivers raspberry and strawberry flavors, deepened by notes of mountain herb, mineral, tar and toast. Firm tannins and citrusy acidity give this a tensile structure. Expressive, a bit wild and alluring. Drink now through 2028. 16 cases imported.–TM
