Clos Bartolome is the latest fruit borne by the vines of the Celler Bartolomé. It boasts a mixture of the grenache and Carignan grape varieties from the year 2018 harvest, collected from ancient vines aging from 40 to 80 years. Both youthful and old at the same time: a fascinating contrast.

All of the personality and character instilled by the native soil in the trossos of Els Molins" with the boldness, potential and freshness held by the red fruits, with certain purplish overtones. Beyond just an exceptional wine from a harvest defined as very good, the Clos Bartolomé 2018 red wine is a real find. Yesterday and today, all in one glass. 

Only 10,000 bottles produced!

Tasting Notes

This wine is of an intense cherry red colour with purplish overtones in the meniscus, an unequivocal sign of its youth. Its aroma is powerful, fruity (ripened fruits, red berries...), concentrated and mature, with balsamic hints and mineral reminiscences over a background of oak which provides light touches of toasted flavours and high-quality spices. To the palate, it is strong and meaty, providing the enjoyment of a certain complexity, while remaining pleasant, voluptuous and well-structured. The fruit and the oak in the barrels are finely integrated. Its tannins are fine and mature, and coupled with the subtle notes of spices, it is made a very fine, elegant, enduring wine with an after taste of mature concentrated fruit.

Winery

The Bartolomé-Vernet family vines are located where the Siurana and Montsant rivers merge on their way to the Ebro. They own three plots: Mas de Caldera, El Grinyó and Els Molins, all of them epitomizing the looks of Priorat, with its sharply sloped landscape. Each terrace is a haven of piece and quiet, where twisted, age-old vines emerge amongst sheets of slate, patiently awaiting the instructions given out by Mother Nature. Some of the Samsó (Cariñena) vines owned by the family go back over a century ago. Their Garnatxa was planted at the bottom of the valley in the seventies. After decades of making wine, the family started bottling it under their own name in 1997.
