(2014) The La Masia cuvée is fermented in stainless steel and aged in French oak barrels, 32% of which were new. The vineyard is planted with six clones of Pinot Noir. It is a smoothly aromatic wine where a keen juiciness is suggested of cherry and raspberry, but with an exotic tobacco and spice background and something almost pear or peach like in the mix. Lovely stuff on the palate, the thick seam of spiced black fruit is solid and supple, but that wreathing smokiness and tingle of peppery spice is there, with fine, but rich and chocolaty tannins and good balancing acidity. Lovely, powerful with 14% alcohol, but has real freshness.
