Acústic Celler Braó DO Montsant

Acústic Celler Braó, DO Montsant

Quick Overview

Very small yields from vines sixty years old make this memorably special wine, both powerful and deliciously smooth, with complex aromas and full flavours that express its particular origins in Albert Jane’s vineyards in the tiny DO of Montsant.

Further Details

Inky-hued, perfumed red with hedonistic, opulent aromas and flavours of ripe blackberry, liquorice, prune and spiced raspberry. Earth, leather and cigar-box notes add complexity to a categorically full-bodied wine with rounded tannins and a sumptuous, neverending finish.

This is a real must-try wine from a star winemaker, and a powerful partner for full-blooded dishes such as fillet steak, hearty casseroles, or spiced sausages.

The photo below shows Acústic Celler winemaker Albert Jané getting his teeth into the distinctive llicorella soil of the Priorat and Montsant area. A mix of ancient slate and quartz, it contributes largely to the unique terroir expressed in Albert's organically produced and singingly ‘acoustic’ wines.

‘Full-bodied but deliciously smooth and opulent, with rich dark fruits, plenty of spice, and well-integrated tannins on the finish. The Acústic red is also well worth trying. With barbecued beef.’
John Wilson, Irish Times January 2019 (link)
“Acústic (makers of Braó) produces wines from 40- to 65-year-old vines ... The wines offer the aromas and flavours of Priorat at a far more friendly price.”
Robert Parker
