 Wine:  Les Alcusses is part of Celler del Roure “Classical” range and is named after an ancient Iberian settlement found near the winery. Les Alcusses is an elegant yet powerful Mediterranean blend. The indigenous Monastrell is the dominant grape along with a mix of local and French varieties which are aged in oak barrels for structure and roundness.  On the nose Les Alcusses is full of fruits and aromatic herbs. While on the palate, it is rich and ripe with a fresh character.
