Espectacle del Montsant 2018

Size: 750ml

Wine Advocate: 98

"The 2018 Espectacle Montsant's color, bright and diaphanous, already reflects the purple hues of its actual youthfulness. Its aroma maintains, year after year, the characteristic notes of this unique wine. Immediately after serving the Glass, it seduces us with subtle aromas of ripe black fruit. Gradually, patience is rewarded, the wine opens to show all the wealth it contains. The rose, orange blossom, and even violet flourish in the glass to integrate a lush complexity." —winemaker

"As with other wines, I also tasted the 2018 Espectacle del Montsant next to the 2017 to catch up, as I last tasted the region some 16 months ago. 2018 was a cooler year of slow ripeness, and the grapes achieved an amazing 16% alcohol. The wine is truly spectacular, true to its name. It has tons of violet notes and aromatic herbs, the palate is gentler, and the tannins are rounder, polished and elegant. It has full body but isn't heavy. There is a lot of complexity, and the wine developed slowly in the glass, showing nuances of cereals, kirsch, orange peel and lots of spices and herbs. It's opulent and full, deep and complex. Amazing in its style." —Wine Advocate

"Attractive dark ruby color, deep and opaque. The nose is pure, focused, and layered, revealing delicate and clean aromas of blackberries, ripe cassis, currants, and violet, associated with fine notes of tobacco, cedar, and coffee bean. The mouth shows outstanding amplitude and balance, luscious texture, bright acidity, broad structure, and persistence. The tannins are well refined, smooth, and silky, enhancing the fresh and juicy character of the year. Precise and polished, the wine combines harmonious elegance, richness, ripeness, and freshness in an exceptional and superb vintage." —winemaker

"After aging 20 months in 20% new François Frères and Taransaud Beaune French oak barrels, this Chardonnay was fined and settled in tank following the next harvest. It was then bottled without filtration." —winemaker
