WINE & SPIRITS 95 POINTS - "Packed with dried cherry and spice notes, this Priorat has begun to reach maturity, but has yet to reach its peak. There’Read More...
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.

ANTONIO GALLONI; VINOUS MEDIA 95 POINTS - "(80% garnacha and 20% syrah; aged for 20 months in French oak, 60% of it new, and in a single 700-liter amphora): Read More...
Bright purple. Sexy, mineral-laced aromas of black raspberry, potpourri, Asian spices and woodsmoke. Palate-staining red and dark berry liqueur flavors are complemented by notes of lavender, spicecake and bitter chocolate, with a minerally quality adding lift, vivacity and focus. Closes extremely long, with superb clarity, sneaky tannins and a whiplash of candied flowers." Josh Renolds

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.

INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR, JOSH RAYNOLDS 93 POINTS - “Vivid ruby. Seductively perfumed aromas of red berries, spicecake, incense and candied flowers, with a suave mineral note emerging with air. Offers deeply pitched raspberry, bitter cherry and licorice flavors along with a sexy rose pastille nuance. Pure, spicy and focused on the finish, which shows excellent clarity and smooth, harmonious tannins.”

Alvaro's Camins is made half from local variety Samsó (a synonym for Carinena), then 40% Garnacha and 10% shared between Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The wine has classic Priorat weight, Read More...
with velvety raspberry fruit and hints of spice and vanillin; the naturally ripe exuberance inherent in this region has been tamed by this relatively mild vintage and the result is pleasingly approachable in youth.

notes of licorice, cola and licorice, with a mineral nuance adding lift and focus. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated but lively spice-tinged raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of candied flowers. Silky tannins add shape to the extremely long, fruit-driven finish, which leaves a sexy spicecake note behind. In the context of elite Priorat wines this is a serious value. (9/2014)

Priorat makes massive wines; there is no arguing that. But the allure of the region is its stark beauty and its ability to craft wildly ripe wines that nonetheless retain dryness and Read More...
even balance. This wine is no exception: black plums and raisins give way to some red cherries and bright raspberries, with spice throughout--a typical Priorat rollercoaster ride. Drink soon or in the next few years. -
