Franck Massard : EDA 2013

An Intense and Powerful Priorat from Franck Massard

Tribute to the village of Poboleda, Eda is a 100% Carignan wine made from the greatest terroirs of Priorat, in the region of Catalonia.

Exceptional sommelier and talented winemaker, the French Franck Massard decided to give this wine a symbolic name. The last three letters are those of the village in which EDA was born.

Sourced from vineyards planted in the typical llicorella soils that lend the wines of Priorat their signature minerality, EDA is a truly a “goldsmith's vintage,” produced in extremely limited quantities and only when optimal conditions are met. In this rough terrain located at an altitude of 550 meters, the vines of Carignan produce only 1kg of grapes per vine. Eda symbolises this fragile balance that links the micro-climate of the area with licorella soils and the unique qualities of the village of Poboleda.

Intense and powerful, the EDA 2013 from Franck Massard reveals pure fruit, while the palate delivers elegance and vivacity, unfolding superbly into a long finish with an very fresh aromatic persistence. Product of a vintage recognised as exceptional in the region, the EDA 2013 by Franck Massard is a wine that is elegant and vibrant with energy, created in the image of the mysterious lands of Priorat.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2013 EDA is pure Cariñena sourced from a slope vineyard at 550 meters altitude on slate soils in the village of Poboleda. It fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts and matured in two 500-liter new French oak barrels for 18 months. The fruit showed very ripe, verging on overripeness, with some aromas of browning apples, something organic and a distinct minty hint. The palate shows abundant, dusty and slightly drying tannins. It felt like the oak regime was a bit too much for the fruit. I hesitated. There are 1,220 bottles produced.
