In Porrera’s Cal Pla cellar, Joan Sangenís and Maria Bigordà, father and son, planned the idea of storing 898 bottles of the regular Fragment 2017 from the excellent 2017 harvest. They did so to test its evolution in the French oak barrel (for 16 months) and in the bottle (for more than 4 years). You can check the result by tasting and enjoying one of those bottles. It left us speechless. It’s TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE! With an unmatched price!

HOW TO SERVE IT
Serve from 16,5-17ºC.
Decant the wine 1 hour before serving it. With the bottle at an angle pour the wine trying to keep the flow slow and steady, then spin it counter-clockwise a couple of times and let it sit until it is ready to drink.
- Wines are always stored horizontally in a cool place where temperatures don’t go above 18ºC.
- It is important to open the bottles or decant them before consumption depending on the type of wine.
- The colour, its intensity and hue, can define the features and characteristics of the wine.
- In Spain there are only two Qualified Denominations of Origin: Rioja and Priorat.
