90 Pts Wine Spectator
"Enticing, with a ripe, energetic core of blackberry and boysenberry fruit, laced liberally with dried anise and bramble notes. A light juniper thread adds range through the finish. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now through 2018. 330 cases made."
"Powerful fresh and crisp black berries and pepper on the nose. A beautiful structure and elegant tannins." - Winery
"Malmont began as an isolated, 11 ha hillside plot, which belonged to Nicolasâ family, situated at 300 meters elevation with ideal exposition to the sun. With the exception of some old vines of roussanne and syrah planted on the lower slope, the site was uncultivated. Where most would see a wild hillside, too steep for growing wine, Nicolasâ vision was of a Grand Cru vineyard in SÃ©guret. Through a collaboration with Mas Martinet in Priorat, Nicolas began terracing the site in 2005 in accordance with the Life Priorat project, which is dedicated to sustainable farming in mountainous regions. The terraces were ingeniously shaped with a 3% incline back toward the mountainside, and downward on the sides. This way as rainfall drains down the vineyard precious topsoil isnât eroded away. This terracing also provides more surface are for vines, resulting in denser planting, greater competition, and more concentrated juice.
Nicholasâ work in the vineyards is incredibly meticulous, and done completely by hand (you couldnât get a machine up onto these terraces even if you wanted to). The soil, which is comprised of fine sand and clay, provides little nutrition for the vines so he composts the rows and uses biodynamic mixtures to spray on the vines. Wild plants and flowers are grown among the rows to provide bio-diversity, and weeds are plowed under the soil for natural compost. As we walked the sun-baked vineyards Nicholas shared his ultimate philosophy about growing wine; he called it âthe art of the smallest mistake.â In others words you must work incredibly hard at trying to think through every detail to make your vineyard as healthy and resilient as possible. âYou are going to make mistakes,â Nicholas said, âbut you can minimize the damage by preparing for them.â
The depth, complexity, and balance of the Malmont wines are a testament to Nicholasâ intelligence and hard work, and also a pure expression of this amazing terroir. They are quite like strains of a Mozart opera emanating from the top of a mountain." - Importer
