Tasting Note

A moderate weight compendium of black cherries and plums with the vanilla and clove of new oak. This is still evolving and will benefit from a few more years in bottle. Drink in the next five or so years.

Wine Description

Clos Pons Alges, a good representative of the extreme viticulture of les Garrigues combines tradition and modernity in the same wine. Powerful, balanced, fragrant and fruity, Alges has a bouquet of pure fruit, surrounded by light touch of wood that makes it elegant and subtle. Berries with a touch of jam, licorice and cherries over mineral notes, species touch and its notable acidity result in fresh and enjoyable wine. Balance is the most important note of this sweet and sexy wine, which invites you to drink one glass after other.

About the Winery

Clos Pons, located in the Les Garrigues district in the south of the province Lleida, is the expression of the relationship between the Pons family and its land. After several generations in high-quality olive oil cultivation, we initiated this new wine project. Our wines gather the signs of identity of the land and extreme climate of Les Carrigues - low rainfall, extreme temperatures, rough land and poor organic soils defined by different mineral compositions represent the suitable setting to produce high-quality wines.
