    The sophomore Psi is bestowed with an elegant bouquet with fresh raspberry, wild strawberry and crushed rose petals wafting gently from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannins on the entry. It is well balanced with slightly gourmand, red fruit laced with tobacco and a subtle saline tincture towards the finish. It is loose-knit towards the finish and as such, I would recommend drinking it now rather than later. Drink now.

    The maiden Pingus is still going strong as it approaches adulthood. It has a complex bouquet, the glycerine content having ebbed over the years, revealing lush scents of creme de cassis, blackberry, black olive and a slight earthy, almost Graves-like tincture. The palate is medium-bodied with surprising succulent on the entry underpinned by crisp acidity. There is almost a sense of conservatism to this Pingus, but it is undeniably well balanced. If I were to criticize, compared to subsequent vintages it lacks the some fineness of tannins towards the finish. Still, it is one delicious drop of Ribera del Duero and could easily last another decade, possibly more. Drink now-2030.

    The 2012s had somehow escaped me in my previous visit to Rioja, so I took the opportunity to taste them now so there is a reference about them in the database. I also had the chance to taste the 2012 Macán in the context of the 2013 and 2014 vintages, so it's good to provide context. 2012 was a dry and healthy vintage that produced ripe grapes. I'm glad I tasted it, and I think I saw it in a very good moment of its evolution, where the oak seems better integrated, still keeping its primary flavors, with very good balance and polished tannins but already developing some complexity and nuances. 54,889 bottles, 1,689 magnums and some larger formats produced. It was bottled in June 2014.

    La Mata is a new single-vineyard wine that was first produced in 2016, and I tasted the 2016 La Mata from bottle and previewed the 2017 from cask. It comes from a tiny plot planted with mostly Tempranillo (with some white grapes) from ancient vines (the age is unknown, but they estimate it could be 140 years old) on clay and limestone soils, dry farmed and in the process of being converted to biodynamic. It fermented with 25% full clusters in a small oak vat with indigenous yeasts and matured in two barriques. The nose is heady, ripe, perfumed, open and a little organic, with a touch of peat and wet slate. This is more textured and serious, from the cooler part of Ribera del Duero from a vineyard that gets the morning light but doesn't get the sun in the afternoon. It has plenty of grainy tannins, different from La Diva, with power but without any heaviness, but it still feels riper and darker. This is less my style than La Diva. Some 600 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2018.

    There is a new wine in Palacios's portfolio, and no, it's not a white. It's another red and, in the hierarchy, is more expensive than Finca Dofí but cheaper than L'Ermita. The first vintage is the 2015 Les Aubaguetes, a single ancient vineyard in the village of Bellmunt that used to contribute to the blend of Les Terrasses. It's a blend of 80% Garnacha, 19% Cariñena and 1% white grapes—Garnacha Blanca and Macabeo—fermented with natural yeasts in foudre, where the wine also aged for 14 months. It has the inner power of the old vines and the struggle of the Priorat conditions, while the higher-yielding vintage seems to have provided drinkability and very pure flavors. There is a touch of rusticity here, not as much as in Les Terrasses but more than in L'Ermita. The palate is textured and soft, subtly mineral with a very long, almost salty aftertaste. Beautiful. A great debut. Only 1,780 bottles were filled in March 2017.

    2012 has to be one of the best recent vintages of Alión. This 2012 Alión is pure Tempranillo from vineyards averaging 25 to 30 years of age, harvested at the end of September and matured for 14 months in new French oak barrels. The nose is much more elegant than the Pintia from Toro (I tasted them together), still very fresh and primary but with a special brightness of fruit, shiny cherries, raspberries, something effervescent, open and somehow exuberant. The palate is quite round, much more polished, with some notes of dark chocolate, some subtle volatility, elegant, fresh and long. It has the balance and stuffing to develop nicely in bottle. Superb balance, Ribera character, clean, modern classic. 280,000 bottles were produced.

    The flagship offering, the 2001 Numanthia, is fashioned from a 70-100 year old Tinta de Toro vineyard planted at a 2300 foot elevation. After a 28 day maceration, the wine undergoes malolactic in barrel, is aged 19 months in new French oak, and is bottled without fining or filtration. The spectacular, opaque purple-colored 2001 offers an explosive nose of melted licorice, barbecue smoke, blackberries, creme de cassis, camphor, and graphite. Full-bodied with gorgeously rich, concentrated fruit, a layered texture, and tremendous purity, it can be drunk young, but should hit its prime in 1-2 years, and last for 10-15.

    I was eager to taste the bottled 2014 Las Beatas, and then I realized I was not only going to taste the 2014 but also the 2015, as it was already bottled. 2014 saw a warm winter with average rain and a dry and warm spring followed by a fresh and dry September with some rain that challenged the end of the ripening period. This is a field blend of Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha, Garnacha Blanca and others fermented in 1,000- and 3,000-kilogram oak vats and matured in 1,200-liter oak foudres for 15 months. I see this more in line with the 2012 rather than the 2013, with a little more ripeness within the elegant style of the vineyard. It's spicy, floral and faintly balsamic with very elegant tannins. The consistency of this wine is in the palate, as the nose changes a lot more. 1,488 bottles were filled in May 2016.

    Aged 18 months in 100% new French oak from 75-year old Tempranillo vines, the 2001 Pagos Viejos is one of Spain’s greatest wines. A singular red of extraordinary stature and intensity, it exhibits an inky/ruby/purple color as well as a luxurious bouquet of lead pencil shavings, black and blue fruits, espresso roast, and floral notes. This full-bodied, dense 2001 possesses layers of flavor, a sweet integration of tannin and wood, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. Drink this riveting Rioja between 2005-2015.

    For L'Ermita, the 1994 is the current vintage in the marketplace; quantities are absurdly small. The color is a saturated inky/purple, and the soaring nose provides thrilling levels of sweet blackberry and cherry liqueur-like fruit. In spite of being full-bodied, massive, and huge, it manages to not taste heavy despite its gargantuan proportions of fruit, glycerin, tannin, and extract. This chewy, glycerin-imbued, phenomenally intense wines possesses all the component parts necessary to become a modern-day legend. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2020.

Spain 2010 Vega Sicilia Unico

2 Case 3 75cl £660
  • I was surprised by the aromatics of the 2010 Único, cropped from a powerful and concentrated year that delivered this blend of 94% Tinto Fino (aka Tempranillo) and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, with 14.5% alcohol and a highish pH of 3.87. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in a combination of French and American oak barrels and 20,000-liter oak vats and aged for almost six years. It feels quite ripe and somehow old style, dominated by ripe black fruit, with a rustic and earthy touch. It has an ample palate, concentrated and powerful, with some earthy tannins. 85,185 bottles, 3,362 magnums, 228 double magnums and 36 Imperials were produced. It was bottled in June 2016.

    I had the chance to preview the 2016 Quiñón de Valmira, a wine that can seem perplexing during the élevage, as it's very pale and ethereal, but it has incredible power and depth, even if the sample was a bit shaky. There is great harmony and elegance here, with very good freshness. Even if it feels light on the palate, it seems to have more clout, concentration, power and acidity than the 2015, like it wants to go one step further. It's not very clear yet, but I believe this is a better wine than the 2015. This should be bottled around February 2018; I tasted a sample from an oval oak cask. There will be some 2,400 bottles of this. I also saw a very raw sample of 2017, from an atypical year of extreme heat and drought, and the wine had a lot more color, extract and concentration. We'll have to wait and see if this ends up being the great wine produced from Valmira. There will be a bit more wine in 2017.

    The top wine from Rioja is not part of the portfolio of Palacios Remondo, even if the sole owner is now Álvaro Palacios, mainly because it's sold through different channels and importers. Each year seems to produce better wine, with 2015 better than 2014, 2016 better than 2015, and the 2017, even if it's still too early, might be the greatest wine produced from this vineyard. It has lightness with power with the essence of limestone
