Robert Parker (RP) : 97+ Points (2018)
The 2018 Les Aubaguetes is the fourth vintage from this plot of 1.28 hectares on a slope planted in the early 20th century. This year it's a blend of 71% Garnacha, 28% Cariñena and 1% Garnacha Blanca and Macabeo. Most of the wines have more Cariñena in 2018 than in 2017, and in this wine, it has been increasing right from the first vintage. It fermented in oak with a maceration of 55 days and matured for 14 months in oak barrels of different sizes. This is very concentrated and powerful, a little more rustic or, let's say, with a different profile than the other wines that are all from Gratallops (this is from the neighboring village of Bellmunt de Priorat). The wine is aromatic and balsamic, with more aromatics and texture from the Cariñena. It has a powerful palate with abundant and slightly dusty tannins, very long and persistent. 2,880 bottles were filled in April 2020.

The Mediterranean is not only known for its close beauty, Camins del Priorat contains nuances that come from afar… seeds from India, exotic wood and flowers… a journey that is both near and far.

Rafael Palacios Louro do Bolo 2021
If we had to pick an example of wine to illustrate the word “balance” it would be Louro. It combines the freshness of Galician wines with the richness of lees contact and oak ageing in a very elegant and subtle way. Rich but precise, this is a a real treat for discerning palates.
