Review:

Les Tallades also figures in the Orto Vins singular wine collection, and specifically belongs to Joan Asens. He inherited the estate from his great-great-grandfather Nicolau, who bought a 2.5 ha plot of land and planted on it a very special, but tiny vineyard (0.17 ha) of Picapoll Negre. Nowadays, this grape variety is pretty rare in the Montsant DO and the only one with ungrafted rootstock. The gentle, south-facing, chalky slopes provide some perfect bush-pruned vines, resulting in a final tally of 600 bottles of wine.

The Picapoll variety expresses itself regally in this wine; totally seductive and with a caressing touch, it displays a floral fragrance of lilac and a delicate, pomegranate-seed crunchiness. It really is quite an unusual wine, with notable acidity. A doubly singular wine, which bears no relation to any of the commercially-minded projects coming out of Montsant. Les Tallades is very much an Asens wine.

Den Begriff „einzigartig“ sollte man in Zusammenhang mit Weinen tunlichst vermeiden, doch bei Joan Asens´ „Les Tallades de Cal Nicolau“ fällt das schwer. Zu viel Außergewöhnliches kumuliert hier zu einem Unikat. Zum Beispiel die Rebsorte „Picapoll negre“, die in „Pla de Bages“ beheimatet ist, aber im Montsant so rar ist wie Wasser im Riu Siurana. Sie wächst auf nicht einmal 0,2ha bei Garcia nahe des Ebros als Teil eines vom Großvater Nicolau an Joan Asens vererbten Weinbergs. Die Rebstöcke sind gut 140 Jahre alt, blieben von der Phylloxera verschont, und sind extrem rare „Pie Francos“. Daraus einen Montsant-Solitär zu keltern, den einzigen sortenreinen Picapoll negre in der D.O., sieht man von einem des eigenen Sohnes ab, ist Joan Asens´ Meisterwerk. Nennt man ihn Genie, lachen seine Augen. Der Wein selbst ist ein unfassbares Erlebnis. Subtil in der Nase, Aprikose, Zimt, Rauch; zart im Mund, weich, elegant und schwebend. Großartig. Einzigartig.
