Buxus, Meritxell Palleja: Discover the Priorat wine region. Meritxell Palleja's Buxus is a red wine to discover from the prestigious Priorat wine region in southern Catalonia. This Priorat red wine is the result of a blend of two grape varieties native to Spain: Carignan and Grenache. These two varieties, planted in 1954 and 1999 respectively, grow on slate soils. This atypical soil type makes Buxus a wine of character, a wine to be discovered without further delay.
