The winery of Bodegas Batlliu de Sort is located within the sprawling appellation of Costers del Segre in Catalonia. Their vineyards lie to the North in the Pallars sub-appellation, an area of great beauty at a raised altitude of 850m above sea level. This is 'mountain' wine from the high Pyrennes.
Their philosophy is to respect the land and reflect it honestly in their winemaking with minimal manipulation, a true expression of the Pyrennes.
100% Pinot Noir. Uncertified organic practice, using stainless steel throughout.
The first Pinot Noir vines were planted by the Bodega in 2007 on calcareous soils. An unusual choice perhaps, for what is a more southerly and warmer wine region. But the high altitude provides a cooler environment where these Pinot vines thrive. Note that they are also able to successfully grow Riesling here.
Biu Negre is lean and elegant, a lighter more fruit forward style. Strawberry, raspberry, orange zest on the nose. A hint of pepper spice and dried herbs to complement this on the palette. Overall a fresh, vibrant wine with great purity given use of stainless steel throughout the winemaking process.

Quick note on Fine Wine purchasing.
When ordering that special bottle of wine it is worth doing a little research before making a purchase. Wine is a living product, which goes through changes and stages of development in the bottle, as well as varying between vintages. If you are considering ordering an older vintage we recommend speaking to a member of staff or using a review site like cellartracker.com to try and get as full a picture as possible of the flavour profile and development of the bottle you are considering.
