Description

2 Bottles of Alvaro Palacios Priorat Vi de Vila Gratallops 2009.

These have been stored professionally and taken out of storage in March and have been in my wine fridge at 12 degrees since, however due to a house move I need to sell my last 2 bottles from the case of 6.

This is a brilliant example of mature Priorat by one of the best winemakers in the region and this was given 93 by Robert Parker and has been given 95-97 by Jay Miller with his review below:

The 2009 Gratallops continues the theme of more complex aromas, greater structure, as well as a better blending of power and elegance. Alvaro Palacios established his namesake winery in 1989. The flagship L’Ermita made its debut in 1993. Finca Dofi and L’Ermita vineyards are farmed biodynamically. All of the wines are bottled without filtration. In 2008 Palacios was the last grower in Priorat to harvest, waiting out rains that diluted other growers’ fruit. It appears that 2009 was a slightly more successful vintage for Alvaro Palacios (and most Priorat producers) than was 2008. All of the 2009s were tasted from barrel samples at the Bodega in January 2011.

Nose: Fruity, with notes of menthol, vanilla, toast, milk, minerals and forest fruits. Complex, balanced with a strong presence of wood.
Palate: herbaceous and chocolate notes. Broad, fleshy and long aftertaste.

These are drinking beautifully now and would be a great addition to Christmas.

The wine will be sent on Monday 20th to be received on the 22nd so it is not sat in a courier warehouse over a weekend.
There is a reserve of £65 which compared to the price of the newest release (£33/bottle) is very generous.

Just to say, collection would be from Woking/Horsell GU21
