Ardevol Anjoli is a wonderful introduction to the prestigious Priorat region of Spain. The Ardevol family has been growing vines in the village of Porrera since the 13th century. Anjoli Read More...
is the name of the adopted daughter of Rose Galceran, one of the partners of Celler Ardevol. This 2009 release received 90-point ratings from both Jay Miller for Robert Parker's Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator!

Ardevol Anjoli is light ruby red in color with a nose of fresh berries, licorice and tobacco. It is soft on the palate with medium-full-body and fine, well integrated tannins, offering rich flavors of plum and blackberries. Anjoli is a blend of 40% Garnacha, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah and 20% Merlot. The wine was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks before aging for 16 months in French oak barrels. It is well balanced with a long, lingering finish.

Black Slate is composed of 60% Garnatxa, 20% Cariñena, 15% Syrah and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. It pours deep purple with a magenta hue and notes of blueberries, crushed rock, sandalwood, Read More...
morello cherries, and Vahlrona chocolate. This is an absolute show-stopper to savor on its own and watch as it evolves in the glass with a rich mouthfeel, soft tannins and a long finish.

Black Slate comes Spain's Priorat region, a small, remote mountainous land near Barcelona taking it's name from the monastery, or priory, that Carthusian monks established in the 12th century and introduced winemaking to the area. The winery is located in Gratallops, and was the first winery registered in the D.O.Ca Priorat. This is a family winery since 1942 founded by Cecilio Vincent who passed down his winemaking tradition to his son August the current winemaker. The sun-drenched 65-years-old vines are stressed from its slate soils and sustainably farmed to cultivate this deep, intense, complex wine.

s still plenty of energy, acidity and freshness, and powerful fruit flavors that pulse with vibrancy. The best vintage of Pleret to date, this wine benefits from Buil & Giné’s oldest plantings of garnacha and cariñena (over 40 years), blended with cabernet, merlot and syrah."

In the holy pantheon of Spanish red wines, the big, full-bodied wines of Priorat can contend only with Rioja and Ribera del Duero for excellence and prestige. A historical appellation dating back to the 12th Century, Priorat, or “priory,” takes its name from the Carthusian Monastery of Scala Dei founded in 1194 to commemorate the spot where, legend has it, a shepherd had a beatific vision of angels ascending a stairway to heaven. Buil & Gine, a family domaine founded in 1996, has quickly risen to preeminence in the appellation, and is widely considered one of the best young producers in Priorat.

two estates, “Mas d’en Caçador” and “Mas d’en Ferran,” owned and looked after by several generations who were previously selling to other local wineries. Carme Figuerola and Raimon Castellví built the winery and got started in 1999, moved by their passion for wine and the exceptional quality of the soils where their vineyard grows – locally called “llicorella.”

TASTING NOTES: Celler de L’Encastell’s Marge is made up of 60% Garnacha with the balance Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 8 months in French and American oak. Dense purple in color, it delivers an enticing nose of licorice, liquid minerality, lavender, incense and black cherry. Round, intense, and layered on the palate.

The nose is a tangible blend of rich, earthy spice, dark red and black berries and plums and subtle briary/ bramble notes. The palate combines both sweet and high-toned fruits (from black raspberries to pomegranate, cranberry to black currant/cassis) with earthy tangents and herbal flecks: slatey minerality, black licorice, incense and black tea. Weaving within and throughout the palate is a wondrous layer of tannins, at once highlighting the brightness, balancing the sweet, blending the two. If this is already stunning in its youth (and it is), time and patience will lead only to Elysian Fields, where wines like this one are served. The last touches of sweet spice and vanilla bean, heartened by deep, dark berry flavors, slowly, joyfully echoed in the moderately long finish."

all with very fine delineation (not a million miles away from a young Laville Haut-Brion.) The palate is medium-bodied with a very composed entry. It has wonderful harmony and a crisp, very focused finish, with racy acidity cutting through the quince and candied orange peel. It has very good persistency on the finish and has the substance to suggest it will age well. Drink now-2022.

Clos Nelin is the property of Rene Barbier of Clos Mogador fame. It is comprised of four parcels totalling 10 hectares on llicorella soil located close to the village of Gratallops. The wine is a blend of 50% Garnacha Blanca and the rest Pinot Noir (blended as a white), Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, Macabeo, Pedro Ximenez and Escanya Vella (a.k.a “old strangler”!). The wine is vinified in a combination of stainless-steel and concrete eggs, plus various sizes of oak barrel, where it spends nine months on its lees. The maiden vintage was 2000 and just 6,000 bottles are produced. Readers should note that the wine is now entitled simply “Nelin” rather than “Clos Nelin.”

it into the vats. The wine is a blend of the different grapes in his Clos Mogador vineyard (it’s just one of a handful of wines officially awarded the single-vineyard label by the Catalan wine institutions): Garnacha, Carinena, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. But the wine speaks more of the place than the grapes, with notes of slate, thyme, rosemary, sage, lavender, black cherries and a supple palate, full-bodied, with pungent flavors, round, velvety tannins and a long aftertaste. This is a superb effort for such a warm vintage, the warmest and driest in Priorat since 2003, and great value for the quality. 30,000 bottles are produced of this prodigious, powerful but balanced Priorat. Drink 2015-2025."

Clos Mogador and the Barbier family should require no introduction to any Priorat aficionado, as they are the pioneers and catalysts of modern day Priorat. To understand low yields (and high prices) it should be enough to say that from their 40 hectares of vineyards they produce 45,000 bottles of wine per year. The wines are not cheap, but for the quality they offer they represent good value and are all highly recommended.

for 14 months in new French oak. The quality of the 2007 vintage is a village by village comparison and is considered better for Carinena. The wine is a glass-coating purple/black color with aromas of tar, licorice, mineral, and a confiture of black fruits. On the palate it is sweetly fruited (likely the contribution of the 80- to 100-year-old Garnacha vines), jammy, and concentrated with enough underlying structure to evolve for 6-8 years. This powerful effort should be at its best from 2015 to 2027."

Ester Nin has released her new wine: Planetes. A coupage of Garnacha (70%) and Cariñena originating from the estate of the same name, which has vineyards that are still fairly young (Read More...
12 years old at present). Moreover, Planetes de Nin is Porrera's first 'Vi de Vila' (literally, 'Town Wine'); in the style of the French Crus, the DOQ Priorat introduced new legislation (2009) that recognises and protects the region's different climatic areas, with the aim of highlighting their own individual characteristics, including vinicultural, soil and climate. In the case of Porrera, the area is particularly cool with no over-ripening; a Planetes only has to be opened for this to be confirmed and to enjoy its sincerity; this is a genuine terroir wine, a truthful expression of the Priorat's historic grape varieties: the Garnacha and the Cariñena.

Despite the youthfulness of the vines, the exceptional characteristics of the area and the terrain, and also the care that both Ester and Carles devote to their cultivation and to every wine-making process (certified organic agriculture and biodynamic farming methods), allow us to enjoy - yet again with this 'new arrival' - the finesse, elegance and great complexity which we have grown used to from this winery. More easily affordable, but on the same lines as the truly excellent Nit de Nin. If you can get hold of a few bottles, then don't think twice.

and longevity. It should see its 30th birthday in fine form. I also was able to taste the 2010 Finca Dofi and 2010 L’Ermita at this early stage. Palacios seems very pleased by his material and I see no reason to doubt him.

Alvaro Palacios established his namesake winery in 1989. The flagship L’Ermita made its debut in 1993. Finca Dofi and L’Ermita vineyards are farmed biodynamically. All of the wines are bottled without filtration. In 2008 Palacios was the last grower in Priorat to harvest, waiting out rains that diluted other growers’ fruit. It appears that 2009 was a slightly more successful vintage for Alvaro Palacios (and most Priorat producers) than was 2008. All of the 2009s were tasted from barrel samples at the Bodega in January 2011."

The palate is powerful and full-bodied with a very intense entry of pure dark berries intermingled with balsamic and Asian spices, a core of ripe black currant and a dense, grippy finish. It displays impressive length and persistency, though it will remain impenetrable for the first 5-6 years of its life. Drink 2017-2030"

immediately surrounding the village of Gratallops and has received tremendous critical praise since its initial release. Only 60 bottles imported into the US.

WINE ADVOCATE 92-94 - "Alvaro is keen to increase the amount of Garnacha in the Gratallops to increase the vivacity of the wine and so the barrel sample of 2011 Gratallops actually contains no Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, following Alvaro’s policy of pursuing what he believes are the true grape varieties of Priorat. It has a vivacious bouquet that soars from the glass, imbued with more florality than the 2010. The palate is very elegant with supple tannins, and in my opinion, it demonstrates more focus and harmony without the aforementioned varieties. This is a sublime elixir!"

STEPHEN TANZER'S IWC 91 POINTS - "Highly perfumed aromas of black raspberry, potpourri and woodsmoke are complicated by notes of coffee, mocha and star anise. Offers a suave combination of richness and energy, with dark berry liqueur and floral pastille flavors energized by zesty minerality. Sharply focused, vibrant and smooth on the gently tannic, clinging finish, which emphasizes fresh dark berries and spicecake."

A wonderful purple shade, notable tears and boldly fragrant aromas of liquor, cocoa, coffee and charcoal embers. It comes as a surprise to encounter definite aromatic notes typical of white winemaking, a distinctive trait that endows Serras with fine balsamic acidity on the nose. This is a rounded, voluminous wine, juicy and intense, with just a whiff of carbonated liveliness; but if you want to enjoy it at its optimum, then wait a while and leave it to settle down. Displaying plenty of energy at present, it augurs extremely well for the future.
