Celler Cal Pla

The Sangenis family, one of the oldest grape-growing families in Catalan DOQ Priorat, historically sold their grapes to the local cooperative. Jaume and Mercé Sangenis expanded their holdings with the purchase of the Mas d’en Compte estate and a ruined house which they renovated to make a winery.

This was ready for when their son Joan completed his oenology studies in 1996 when they began Celler Cal Pla to bottle under their own label. Based in the village of Porrera in Priorat, they own 20 hectares of southfacing vineyards with an average age of 50 years and several small parcels of 100+ year old vines of Garnacha and Carignan. The oldest vineyards are situated on steep slopes known as costers and the younger vines are found on the north-west facing terraces. Vines grow here at an altitude of 300-400m. The dark mineral topsoil called Llicorella, is a layer of decomposed black and reddish slate, quartz and particulate mica that lies up to 50cm deep over blue and reddish bedrock. It reflects sunlight and conserves night-time warmth. Roots are forced deep into these high mineral content rocks. Joan Sangenís is hugely talented and heads up the winemaking, firmly believing wine comes from great grapes not great hands, and accordingly spends ten months in the vineyards and only two in the cellar. The weeks of ploughing and dedication in the vineyard means they are herbicide and pesticide free and grapes are of the very highest quality. Harvesting is by hand, fermentations in stainless steel, and ageing in oak.

Vintage guide

Always difficult to generalise about Spain but 2022 saw high temperatures and an early harvest of clean grapes, the early signs look good. The 2021 vintage is very good after a warm dry season with wines showing good concentration and aromatics. A wet first half of the 2020 vintage meant a lot of work in the vineyard was needed but a better, more consistent second half resulted in some juicy young wines with those ageing in barrel looking very promising. A very good year, 2019 had warm dry conditions but yields were limited by a tricky flowering period. A cooler and wetter year than other recent vintages has endowed the wines of 2018 with greater freshness and lower alcohols. Across the country the wines are showing good aromatics, plenty of weight, and a juicy fresh character. Growers had a complex year in 2017 having to contend with frost, hail and drought. Yields are down as a result, but the picture overall is of good quality particularly in Galicia and the South, Penedès also performed well. The 2016 vintage was pretty good on the whole with Ribera del Duero, Rioja and Rueda having excellent results. 2015 was heralded as the best vintage across Spain in recent years, and particularly so in the north. 2014 saw some good wines made with a little rain in the second half of harvest and low yields. This came after the potentially great 2013 vintage which has given fresh, vibrant, robust wines.
