Merum Priorati El Cel 2019

Product description

El Cel has an opaque cherry-red hue with a purple rim. The nose has notes of dark fruit such as ripe blueberries, with subtle undertones of pastries, as well as hints of toasted grain from the French oak. It is broad on entry and refreshing on the palate, thanks to its well-integrated minerality. It has aromas of dark fruit such as wild berries, blackberries and plums. It unfolds in powerful, complex fashion, and its silky tannins ensure a long, elegant midpalate.

95 Points - Wine Spectator

Creme de cassis, mocha and licorice notes are rich and creamy on the palate of this harmonious red, underscored by savory accents of cured tobacco, smoke and loamy earth. Structured by sculpted tannins and vibrant acidity, this is well-meshed, ending long and expressive on the finish.

94 Points - Wilfred Wong

The 2019 Merum Priorati El Cel is a powerful red wine leaving a long finish and a lasting impression. This wine excels with aromas and flavors of black fruits, oak, and licorice. Serve it with prime rib, au jus, Yorkshire pudding, and fresh horseradish.
