94pts Parker; 94pts Penin

The wines are made Jose Luis Perez one of the original pioneers of the Priorat. There incredible tiny old vine vineyards that straddle the mountainsides of the Priorat, planted in the famous llicorella/schist soils make some of the finest wines I have ever tasted and some of the finest wines ever made. The last time the Wine Advocate visited and tasted Spain, the standout wines from their trip, the wines that separated themselves from all others were the wines of Clos Martinet, “My senses were almost overwhelmed by the thrilling wines …...” These wines are what legends are made of, they hurt you they are so good, tremendous depth and concentration and length with some of the finest pure black fruit wine can possess. I absolutely adore these wines and while they rival the finest in the world, they offer spectacular value. The 2008 Clos Martinet will give great pleasure through 2025 and will give you one of the most thrilling experiences that can be found in a bottle.

“Inky purple. With great density and fabulously explosive aromatics (acacia flowers, crushed blackberries, blueberry liqueur, and wet stones), this full-bodied, compellingly rich, multilayered, awesome wine is a great example of what makes the Priorat appellation so special. Enjoy 2011-2026” 94pts Parker
