Characteristics of Les Aubaguetes

Les Aubaguetes is a coupage of the Garnacha and Cariñena varieties as well as 2% white grapes (Garnacha Blanca and Macabeo). It is made by the Álvaro Palacios winery in the D.O Q. Priorat in Gratallops, Catalonia.
 

The name, Les Aubaguetes, means “shade” and refers to plots where the sunlight is not as intense. The grapes used to make this wine come from an estate with the same name in Bellmunt del Priorat. This is a north-facing plot, caressed by the sea breeze, balanced by the freshness that comes from the north. It is home to the best old vines, some of which are over 110 years old. This special vineyard is made up of soils with predominantly siliceous slate (licorella) and it is worked according to organic farming principles.


When the clusters reach the winery, they are fully destemmed and the berries are gently crushed. Alcoholic fermentation takes place with native yeasts in wooden tubs with regular cap plunges. The resulting wine undergoes spontaneous malolactic fermentation in wooden containers and then ages for 16 months in wooden foudres.


Les Aubaguetes is another wine that successfully interprets the landscape and the characteristics of the terrain, terrain where Álvaro Palacios uses his gift for winemaking to enhance the essence of every corner of his Priorat vineyards.

Tasting notes Les Aubaguetes

Les Aubaguetes 2017 is an aromatically deep red wine with citrus notes on the nose that are characteristic of the Garnacha variety, accompanied by aromas of ripe red and black fruits and a mineral nuance. On the palate it is velvety, with strong tannins but also smooth and refined. A wine with longevity that will be extraordinary after five years in the bottle.
We present the new 2016 vintage, characterised by the wettest winterin the last five years. Not only did it rain in winter, but there was also wet weather up until summer arrived, especially inMarch and April. In summer everything changed, and it was one of the driest inhistory, with only 28 litres being recorded between July and October.If we compare the temperatures in 2012 and 2016, the 2016 crophad to endure a much colder winter than in 2012, which turned outto be positive, since the frost cleared the fields ofvine parasites. During the spring, lower temperaturesthan in 2012 were also recorded.Due to all these climatic conditions there was a delay insprouting, which began on March 28th, and which led to a delayin flowering of between three and four weeks.Once the summer arrived, the Priorat got all the luck, sincethe rains disappeared, while in the rest of Europethey were incessant. It was something that nobody expected considering thewinter we’d had. Taking into account the delay insprouting, the harvest started around mid-October on some ofthe estates.Obtaining fresh wines with an extraordinary acidity is dueto this long duration of the grape in the strain that has so characterisedthis vintage.
The vintage began in autumn in the best possible way, with good rainfalls that would fill the water reserves for optimal growth development. Winter was characterised by low temperatures and even snow covered some areas of Priorat. March started wet and cold, which delayed the budding of the vines. In mid-May, flowering was encouraged and was followed by a somewhat unstable June with several rainfalls.
