Decanter - 93 (2015 Vintage) Part of Best wedding wines: Top picks and buying guide
Clean and fresh on the nose, but relatively unfocussed, though there is a sense of earthy, liquorice refinement. More in the offing than in the glass right now, however the palate is bright, acidic, stony and spicy; a tumbling mountain stream of purity and freshness, which is pretty good going for Priorat. - Drinking Window 2017 - 2021
