Overview

A new vineyard offering from Ester Nin and Carles Ortiz, Coma d’En Romeu is a south- and southeast-facing site at an elevation of 350 meters above sea level. Here 75-year-old Garnatxa Negra is planted on costers of schist rather than terraces found in their other “Grand Cru” site, Mas d’En Caçador. Despite its orientation and due to Ester’s light hand in the cellar, Coma d’En Romeu is a floral, herb-tinged, red fruit dominant Priorat fermented with indigenous yeast in vat and aged in French oak demi-muids.
