L'Inconscient offers a tribute to those unforgettable childhood memories where simple enjoyment was the name of the game. A juicy red wine that is a great introduction to the most expressive Priorat. Forward and gentle, with a very youthful nose of ripe fruits and hints of spices. Smooth texture, fresh and lively on the palate, with fruit and a touch of well integrated oak followed bt a clean, fresh finish.
Marc & Adria Perez are two cousins of the same age who grew up on farms and wineries. They both worked and traveled abroad in very diverse areas, but perhaps more than any other country, France with Bordeaux and the Rhone has marked them. Hence, the name of the winery and the wines: "Les Cousins" (in Catalan, it's written almost the same way).
"Les Cousins Marc & Adria" was born in the village of Porrera (Priorat). The area were they first started their experience in wine, where they grew up together and where they live today. They always wanted to begin something new from scratch, focusing on the old vines from the village of Porrera and using different types of vinification. 2007 saw the birth of La Sagesse or Wisdom, merely 10,000 bottles made of very old Carignan and Grenache. The following year, in 2008, they were able to source more grapes and made a more value oriented and attractive wine: "L'Inconscient" or "The Innocence". The wines were first released in 2010.
25% Grenache, 20% Carinena (Carignan), 20% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah, 5% Grenache Blanc, 5% Viognier.
Aged for a period of 7-12 months in 7000-liter French oak barrels, and after the coupage is done, the wine remains another 2–3 months in stainless steel tanks before it is bottled.
