The Llum is a blend of young and old vines from Grenache Gris and Macbeu, planted between 1919 and 2008. Grown on very barren slate soils without clay, they give the wine its typical crystalline and mineral character.
A slightly salty scent breathes towards you. But the Llum is reserved, almost taciturn and only gives an idea of what he is made of.
The 2020 Llum by Roc des Anges is currently only presented in the mouth as a sketch of a wine that will soon bloom to full size. Firm and closed on the palate with high tension, it looks like a monolith, the contours of which have yet to be exposed. Slightly woody notes are present. The acidity is elegant, aromatic, it is rather taciturn with a little liquorice in addition to the clearly saline character. A wine that will reward us richly in just a few months.
