Revealing a lighter ruby, translucent hue, the 2018 Nit De Nin La Coma D'En Romeu comes from a single 11-hectare, cooler vineyard planted all to Garnacha. An incredible nose of blueberries, rose petals, white pepper, and forest floor emerges from this incredibly floral, spicy, Rayas-like Garnacha that’s medium to full-bodied and has a beautiful spine of acidity, flawless balance, and a monster of a finish. This is one of those incredibly elegant, seamless wines that’s also powerful and concentrated. It shines with air today yet has another 15 years of prime drinking ahead of it. If you love Burgundian style Grenache, this is for you!
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.
