Critic Notes

Very similar colour to the wine above but it looks just slightly less youthful. Raw notes on the nose (in dramatic contrast to the appearance and nose of the wine above!). Lots of acidity but not especially refined. Big and bold and very chewy. Grainy finish. A sinewy wine. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Score: 17-/20Jancis Robinson

A distinctive effort, this 2000 offers up charming notes of chocolate, cocoa, mocha, and espresso along with red and black fruit aromas. However, in the mouth, the wine seems pinched, compressed, astringent, and disjointed. Perhaps I caught it on a bad day, but two samples tasted were identical. Oct 2002, www.robertparker.com

Score: -/100Robert Parker

Heroic Viticulture - The Unique Wines of Priorat
This week we caught up with Valenti Llagostera, one of the great Priorat producers from the Mas Doix winery. Valenti's knowledge of the region is unparalleled and fascinating to listen to - from its extraordinary history, its unique soils, its fateful battle with phylloxera, and it meteoric rise back onto the global stage. Priorat is one of the top appellations in Spain, being one of just two wine ...
