L'Esparver Eric Lahon Negre 2018
Result of the partnership between the Cooperativa Falset-Marçà and the sommelier Eric Lahon. Made from the old Garnacha, Cariñena and Syrah vines that Lahon bought in the DO Montsant. The delicate fermentation and ageing in French oak barrels make l'Esparver a truly great Montsant.
Type of wine
Garnatxa, Carinyena, Syrah
Designation of origin
Style of Wine
Fine red wine
Cherry, deep, with violet rims and very thick legs.
Fruits of the forest and floral aromas. Clove, cinnamon, vanilla, toasted flavours and smoked notes. Hints of minerals and balsamic.
Fleshy, lots of volume and unctuous. Elegant, with an acidity that provides freshness.
The old Cariñenas and Garnachas harvested by hand by the cooperative members are vinified at a century-old winery, in close collaboration with the winery team and Marta Ferré, the winemaker, at the helm.
Ideal for roasted or grilled red meats, and game. Excellent for stews cooked with aromatic herbs. Serve at a temperature of 18°C. Decant an hour before Tastinging.
An absolutely stunning wine. A wonderful coupage of the three varieties, an exceptional old vine, harvest by hand with a large selection of grapes, and ageing in French oak barrels. This is a Montsant red wine that will enamour you the minute that you Tastinge it. It's very important to drink it at the recommended temperature and remember to open the bottle a while before trying it. This means that you can savour all the organoleptic qualities that it has been treasuring during its preparation.
In the vineyard
Garnachas and Cariñenas over 90 years old. 450 metres above sea level. Narrow terraces with very poor slate soils. Average yield of 700 g per vine.
In the winery
Malolactic fermentation before ageing on lees for 20 months in new French oak barrels. Regular bâtonnage in light and medium toasted barrels. Bottled without clarifying. Bottle ageing for a minimum of one year.
Cooperativa Falset - Mas Lahon
The Cooperativa Falset-Marçà (DO Montsant) is the result of the merger between the Marçà and Falset cooperatives, two neighbouring towns just a three-kilometre drive apart in the southern part of the Priorat region.
In 1932, the Falset subzone was created within the limits of the DO Tarragona, which had previously occupied the current territory of the DO Montsant (finally created in 2001). It currently has a total of fifty-nine wineries spread between the Priorat and the Ribera de Ebro. The DO covers everything from family vineyards to private wineries of various sizes and major cooperatives.
