Reserva Martí 2009 and La Milana 2012, awarded in the Millésime Bio 2016 international competition

Once again we have taken part in Millésime Bio, the international ecological wine competition, which is now in its ninth edition, obtaining medals for two of our benchmark red wines: Reserva Martí and La Milana. 

On the 25th, 26th and 27th of January the fair with the same name as the competition, Millésime Bio, will be held in Montpellier, and this will be when the award giving ceremony takes place for the winning wines in this edition and where we will also be present to exhibit the awarded wines and others that complete our range of ecological wines. 

In this edition, 1392 wines were tasted from different wine regions around the world (142 more references than in the previous edition), of which 136 were acknowledged with a gold medal, 172 with a silver medal and 111 with a bronze medal. 

Regarding our wines, the Gold medal achieved by Reserva Martí 2009 places it as one of the two Catalan wines that were awarded with distinctions among all the wines awarded in this category. With a coupage of the Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties and aged for 2 years in French, Allier oak barrels, it is one of the cellars emblematic wines as it was also the first ecological wine that the oenologist and our cellar’s technical director, Josep Maria Albet i Noya, decided to produce as a coupage. 

The other awarded wine in the competition was La Milana 2012, with a Silver medal. This is another of the cellar’s benchmark wines, produced with a coupage of more traditional varieties like Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, along with a touch of Merlot and Caladoc (a cross between the Garnacha and Malbec varieties) that is aged for 18 months in French, Allier oak barrels. La Milana shows the character of the old vineyards that are the mainstay of the Can Milà de la Roca estate: character and personality in their purest state. 

Happy to have started the year with such good news and let’s hope it continues like that!
