Coop 1958 Negre
The cooperative format stemmed from the need to join forces and work together to achieve bigger common goals and with more potential than individually. The label, the COOP 1958 brand, "speaks volumes about the origins that we're proud of". This is a mature red wine that is fruity with nuances of ageing.
Type of wine
Merlot, Ull de llebre, Cabernet sauvignon
Designation of origin
Do Costers Del Segre
Style of Wine
Casual and fruity
Ripe cherry colour, dense, medium and high depth.
Aromas of red fruit caressed by hints of spice and vanilla from the ageing.
Firm midpalate, ripe tannins on the palate, persistent between the balance of the fruity aspect and the dried oak.
Coupage of native varieties and so-called foreign varieties, some planted in the 1980s, which have fully adapted to the environment. Varieties that speak of the Montsec. Merlot, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon with a small part of crianza wine.
Between 14 and 16 degrees
An excellent wine to pair with not too over-elaborate meals. Highly recommended for grilled meats, certain pan-grilled vegetables, salads with soft cheeses or a good blue fish. But neither will you look bad if you pair it with other dishes. It's one of those wines that's always a success. If the food doesn't go down well, it definitely won't be the wine's fault.
This is one of those wines that, if you stop to think for a second, you need to realise that the bottle is also full of the efforts and dedication of many people who have decided to work collectively and achieve common goals. A very important concept today. A still, casual wine for anyone who likes a very mild and discreet hint of the barrel.

Celler Montsec Artesa
The Celler Montsec is a section of the Cooperativa de Artesa de Segre. At the beginning, and in keeping with local traditions, winemaking was the cooperative's main activity.
The transformations experienced by agriculture in the 1960s and 1970s meant that this crop was replaced by cereals, as they were less labour intensive and more compatible with livestock farming.
Do Costers Del Segre
The continental nature of this region, far from the sea, kept it off trading routes for centuries, resulting in wines with characteristic features.
It was the first place in Catalonia where the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay varieties were introduced, together with native varieties, and also where Californian winemaking techniques were adopted.
