Lot #484. Alvaro Palacios L'Ermita Velles Vinyes 2011

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: Spain, Catalunya, Priorat.
Score: 95 WA.
Only 120 cases made. "Yields in 2011 were even lower than in 2010 (and both were relatively large vintages, as there will be no more than 500 bottles of 2012 or 2013), 3.64 hectoliters per hectare. It has a riper nose than the 2010 (aren’t comparisons awful?) with earthy notes of soil (beetroot?), peat, violets, ripe peach and juicy fruit flavors. It’s elegant yet powerful, ripe and with grainy tannins. It feels very organic, soil-driven, full and ripe . . . . In case you’re interested in a second opinion, Álvaro Palacios himself was telling me how he prefers L’Ermita 2011 over 2010, which he finds fuller." Wine Advocate #211, Feb 2014
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $700
