Overview

An interesting take on the classic Bordeaux blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, the Taleia from Raül Bobet’s project in the far reaches of the Costers del Segre is far from an imitation of Graves. First of all one look at the stunning vistas from his vineyard at 1000m meters above sea level dispels any notion of the gentle, bucolic and gravelly landscape of Bordeaux. Secondly the chalky soils that Raül chose to plant his Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon is more similar to Sancerre than Graves. The wine is fermented in a combination of new French oak, tanks and stone lagars with indigenous yeasts so the resulting wine is relentlessly mineral but with an added depth and richness on the palate.
