Les Alcusses is Celler del Roure’s second wine and closely related to the highly-praised Maduresa; that may be so, but this wine has been quite capable of carving out its own path on its own merits, as it’s not lacking in qualities.
NOTE: We recommend opening the bottle half an hour before serving.
Malolactic fermentation in tank. Aged for 3 – 4 months in two and three year-old French oak barrels.

Ratings and awards
I very much enjoy the wines from Celler del Roure and this reasonably priced red is no exception to that rule. It's a blend of five different red grape varieties, but it remains nicely balanced and doesn't overwhelm the palate with over-complexity. Easy-drinking, with lots of fruity notes, it's great value for all-year-round enjoyment.
This is the second wine from Celler del Roure, a family winery based in Valencia that also produces the excellent Maduresa, Cullerot and Parotet Vermell. It is a blend of Mourvèdre, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo. Medium-bodied, flavoursome and with ripe fruit and berry aromas, it represents great value for money.
Great for a dinner party.
I bought this wine some time again and it has been sitting in the back of my wine fridge forgotten, I recently tried one bottle tried it and thought it very good, I took the remaining bottle to a dinner party and my friend all commented on how much they liked it.
A good wine but it didn't do it for me. I found the grape blend to be to confusing and felt the notes needed more cellar time to develop. However, my partner really like it! And the other wines from this Celler del Roure provide outstanding value for money.
Fantastic everyday wine
This is a super choice at the price-quality point for everyday drinking and holds its own on its own or with a wide range of foods.
