    Castell d'Encus

    Costers del Segre (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    3 bottles x Thalarn 2012

    3 bottles x Quest 2011

     

    "The 2012 Thalarn is a great cool-climate Syrah, reminiscent of a Northern Rhone, or rather a Syrah from Valais, with its wild, slightly rustic character. Right now it is covered by the baby fat and the aromas from the best French oak money can buy, as it’s extremely young, and needs some years to grow up. While delicious right now, it will only get better if you wait. It has a fine palate, with a silky texture and saturated, round tannins. The 2008, the first vintage from a cool year which only reached 11.3% alcohol, is sublime now, if that gives you a hint about drinking windows. Drink 2015-2022."

    95 points - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate's Robert Parker, Feb 2014

     

    Vivid ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh blueberry and woodsmoke, with a suave floral quality emerging with air. Sweet dark berry and spicecake flavors put on weight with and pick up a floral pastille nuance. Fresh and energetic, with a lingering note of dark berry preserves on the supple finish.

    Proyecto Garnachas de España

    Priorat (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 375 ml

    Sweets, Tarte tatin


    Red cherry colour with ochre edges. Subtle and complex aroma, with notes of ripe black fruits, quince, dried apricot, orange peel and aromatic herbs. Dense, glyceric and tasty wine, with long aftertaste full of ripe fruits and liquor.

    Ausás Bodegas y Viñedos

    Ribera del Duero (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "In its first year, the 2016 Interpretación is Tempranillo from over 40-year-old head-pruned vines on sand, clay and limestone soils with plenty of stones at 900 meters in altitude. It went through a cold soak and fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and concrete vats. It matured for 16 months in 225- and 500-liter oak barrels, 40% of them new. I was blown away by the wine in bottle, after tasting the 2017 in barrel. This is Ausás's interpretation of Ribera del Duero after 30 years of experience. He's sourcing grapes from specific growers that he has known for a long time, as he had purchased grapes for Alión from many of them. The wine shows the character of Ribera, a chalky backbone of fine-grained tannins, coated by fruit and berries, an herbal, spicy touch and perfectly integrated oak. There is good freshness, a rare combination of elegance and power and superb balance. My guess is the wine should develop nicely and for a very long time in bottle."

    Hacienda Monasterio

    Ribera del Duero (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "A superb vintage in the region has produced a great 2014 Reserva, a wine where they select grapes from the soils with more limestone within their estate. A blend of 80% Tempranillo with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, it has good ripeness, power and freshness, coming through as a textbook Reserva. It's still young and lively after an élevage in French barrels (40% of them new) for some 20 months. This was inspired by some wines from Bordeaux, even though it has a somewhat more Mediterranean profile... The palate of this 2014 is better than the nose at the moment. Sisseck compared 2014 to 1995, an almost perfect year in the region."

    "Hacienda Monasterio tends to make its best wines in cool vintages like 2014. Combining Tempranillo with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is fresh and leafy with notes of green herbs and aromatic coffee bean oak."

    La Rioja Alta

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Vegetables


    "Fresh blueberries and brambleberries take center stage, which is striking for a wine of this age. There are also lots of roasted herbs, such as sage, not to mention floral elements, including lavender and dried violets. Then come cedar, sandalwood and tar. The tannins are incredibly round and soft, without the slightest hint of anything dry. This is among the most elegant of Riojas, where the acidity is wonderfully pronounced and cuts right through any touch of dried fruit. Long and powerful, yet subtle on the finish. Drink now, or hold for a very long time."

    "It seems like yesterday when the superb 2001 was released, and now I already have the 2010 Gran Reserva 904 in my glass. It has to be among the greatest modern time vintages of this mythical bottling, where they aim for a wine that has a long aging potential. This is mostly Tempranillo with 10% Graciano and 13.5% alcohol, and it matured in fourth-used American oak barrels for four years, during which time the wine was racked every six months. It has the combination of elegance and power only the best vintages are capable of, with the classical aromas, great detail and nuance, very good balance and persistence. They consider 2010 among the best years of this century, and maybe future generations will talk about 2010 like we talk about the great classical vintages of yesterday today. The palate is polished but shows plenty of energy and tension, the tannins are very fine and elegant, and the flavors are focused and clean. This has to be one of the greatest wines from the vintage. A legend in the making."

    Bodegas Alonso

    Jerez (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    4 x 375 ml

    Cured Meat


    4-bottle Historic Saca Set. Only 500 sets produced.

     

    1 x 375 ml Gaspar Florido Amontillado | 90-100 years old

    1 x 375ml Pedro Romero Palo Cortado | 60-70 years old

    1 x 375ml Gaspar Florido Palo Cortado "Tú no te Olvides"  | 110-120 years old

    1 x 375ml Pedro Romero Oloroso | 60-70 years old

     

    "Part of a four-bottle pack and not sold separately, the NV Amontillado, the top of the range presented in a square-ish/short, round, stocky bottle, comes from a very old solera from Gaspar Florido of Manzanilla origin. It is sharp and vertical with signs of very old age, powerful and concentrated but keeping elegance, poise and balance. This is truly outstanding and world class."

    97 points - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, Dec 2017

     

    "One of two Palo Cortados, the NV Palo Cortado was bottled from a single cask of very old wine whose origin was Pedro Romero. It also comes in a rectangular bottle that resembles a perfume or a liqueur, part of a four-bottle case that is not sold separately. "

    97 points - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, Dec 2017

     

    "The NV Palo Cortado "Tu no te Olvides" also comes in a rectangular bottle that resembles a perfume or a liqueur, part of a four-bottle case that is not sold separately, so the price is only approximate as it's not yet exported and is only sold as part of a four-bottle lot. This comes from a single cask of very old wine whose origin was said to be the Ansa Real solera of Gaspar Florido, a mythical, iconic wine. It has more Palo Cortado character than the other one in the series. There is some creaminess and some nutty aromas with a combination of sharp and rounder characteristics on the palate that make it a good example of the style."

    "Presented in the same stocky bottle as the Amontillado, the single-cask NV Oloroso, whose origin is a very old wine from Pedro Romero believed to be 60 to 70 years of age, is extremely old, concentrated and powerful, with parameters off the charts by pure evaporation and concentration through old age. It's intense, pungent and penetrating, with a sweet touch that softens the sensation on the palate."
