Celler Batea's wines reflect the winegrowing culture of the land, with the Garnacha Tinta and Garnacha Blanca taking centre stage. In this case, L'Aube is inspired by the Bordeaux concept, blending the varieties separately prior to assemblage.

Style of Wine
Fine red wine
A very attractive cherry colour, very intense with ruby tones.
Mellow, elegant, notes of ripe black fruit. Hints of dark chocolate. Toasted flavours with jam undertones.
Sweet and silky tannins. A lingering and intense afterTastinge. Notes of spices such as black pepper, coffee, cocoa.
A red wine that more than shows the potential of the winery, its vineyards, its people and its winemaking methods. It reflects the history of the various vineyards and achieves a spectacular coupage with magnificent finesse.
Between 14 and 16 degrees. Decant it
With strong or oily fish such as tuna, albacore or salmon. Grilled meats (hamburger, beef or carpaccio), light stews seasoned with herbs or wild mushrooms. With game meats such as duck and rabbit, or poultry such as chicken. Also ideal with semi-hard or Brie-type cheeses. If you pair it with a cheese fondue, you'll cry with happiness.
On more than one occasion, you must have described a wine as amazing. And this will be another occasion, without a shadow of doubt. This is a perfect, and very versatile, wine for pairing with everything from oily fish to succulently grilled meat. And the best thing is that once you've opened the bottle, you'll be wanting glass after glass. A treat hard to forget.
In the vineyard
Meticulously selected old vines in Batea. L'Aube is the name of a plot that year after year produces quality grapes.
In the winery
The grapes are destemmed, crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks with native yeasts and with minimal intervention. The wine is then pumped over until the end of alcoholic fermentation. After that, the saignée method is used to place it into concrete tanks. It then spends 15 to 18 months in French oak before being bottled.
The relationship of the Tierra Alta with wine comes from the Phoenicians, who set up trade routes with various geographical points across the Iberian Peninsula.
And it was via the mouth of the River Ebro in the Mediterranean Sea that today's Batea, located less than fifty kilometres away, had its first contact with wine in the seventh century BC.
Do Terra Alta
The so-called Customs of Orta (1296) and Miravet (1319) already regulated the sale of wine from the region. But it wasn't until the late nineteenth century that winegrowing became widespread. With the phylloxera plague, the demand from producers for DO Terra Alta  grapes increased, first from the French and then from the neighbouring regions that today are DO Tarragona and DOQ Priorat. In the early twentieth century, the organisation of cooperatives was a revolution.
