The Llebre is round, soft and expressive. It has a dark red cherry color with garnet edge. Clean vivid nose with red fruit compote tones, sweeties, balsamics, spices, vanilla, white pepper, clove and oak tones well integrated. Velvety, fresh and elegant in the mouth with nice and gentle tannins and liquorice hints. Red fruit and spiced tones on the finish.
The Tomas Cusine vines are supported by vase and trellis, in a calcareous and franc-clay soil. They’re hand harvested and cooled in cold-storage rooms before going through the selection table. The wine undergoes a three months agingperiod in French oak barrels.
89 Points – Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar:
Lively, mineral-laced aromas of dark berries and cherry, with cracked pepper, smoky oak and floral accents coming up with aeration. Tangy and delineated on the palate, showing bitter cherry and blackcurrant flavors and a hint of candied violet. Finishes on a zesty mineral note, with very good focus and sneaky tannins.
