I can’t believe my ears. In the office of Ramón Servalls Batle, direct descendant of Macià Batle, the sound of classical piano music is louder than my own voice. No, it’s not a tape, it’s a friend of the family practising the grand piano in the basement. I really thought it was a CD from Lang Lang.
This bodega exudes the philosophy ‘wine and arts’, and when Ramón starts to speak about it, his eyes become shiny. This love for art is contagious. And that’s why his office is full of art gifts brought by bodega friends from all over the world. I’m not really a friend of the big players within the wine business. But is it even possible to speak about a big player with a yearly production of one million bottles? Yes it is.
Because if we compare it with the bodegas throughout Spain, including the big wine producers from La Rioja, with a yearly production of five million bottles, their production is quite considerable. Combined with the fact that most of the Macià Batle wines are consumed on the island, that deserves respect and appreciation.
Reserva Privada 2010
80% Manto Negro, 10% Callet, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon & 5% Syrah.
Velvet-red colour in the glass. Notes of wild berries and aroma of cigar smoke are present. The fine flavour entrances the palate. The aftertaste is long-lasting.
