El Ramon (meaning the one known as Ramon in Catalan) refers to Ramon Marco, the vineyard manager, whose passion and commitment to his work is what help Clos Pissarra produce the quality of wines they strive for. This bottling is made up of three vineyards all within the town of Bellmunt del Priorat. The wine is made of about 50% Grenache, 20% Carignan, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah. Yields on these very steep hillsides, were the only thing you see on the ground is slate (locally referred to as licorella) are typically less than 1 ton to the acre!

At Clos Pissarra, 2011 was a mildly warm vintage for the area and as such the grapes had ample time to develop evenly on the vines. The three vineyards carried a moderate load that was able to ripen fully and served to create very small, yet concentrated berries. The resulting wine exudes aromas and flavors of ripe blackberries together with black plums, complemented with a touch of dried herbs with a long and lingering aftertaste.

There was ONLY 878 cases produced!!

Tasting Notes


The name Clos Pissarra is derived from the Catalan word for slate, as this is the soil that covers the regions of Montsant (sacred mountain) and Priorat (priory), which lie about 85 miles southwest of Barcelona.

Priorat has quickly established itself as the premier wine region in Spain, producing wines of great intensity and concentration but yet remaining elegant and balanced. The most highly regarded sites come from the villages of Bellmunt del Priorat, El Molar, El Lloar, Gratallops and Porrera.

Montsant has found a most comfortable niche, being described as a softer, more approachable version of Priorat, and a great value. The most highly touted sites in the appellation are found in the villages of Falset and Capcanes.

Clos Pissarra does not belong to either the Priorat or the Montsant appellation system as they find the current process to join either one cumbersome, bureaucratic, and not necessarily conducive to producing fine wine. Several other high-profile producers are now following their footsteps in this regard. Thus they are neither Montsant nor Priorat and instead are simply Clos Pissarra. Each of the vineyard bottlings does name the town where that vineyard lies and the grape varieties that make up the wine.
