Benje Blanco Listan Blanco 2020

To me this is second only to chateau Beru Chablis. Super oily texture and a little oxidation but super crunchy mineral and a wide range of citrus, stone, and orchard fruits. Perfect acidity that lifts and carries it all the way through. — 12 days ago

Clos Erasmus

Laurel Priorat Garnacha Blend 2019

Over the last 10 years or so, I’ve sort of avoided the wines from Priorat. Not for any ideological reasons, more so I simply found the wines too often over the top for my palate. However, after years of skipping offers, I bit the bullet a couple years ago and swooped up a couple bottles of Laurel which is a wine made by Clos i Terrasses (most famously known for Clos Erasmus). I’m so glad I did. What I discovered was a wine of tremendous character and beauty.

The 2019 version of this wine is no different. It pours an almost magenta red ruby with a translucent core and moderate staining of the tears. On the nose, raspberries, plums, purple flowers, dried herbs, organic soil, limestone. There’s abundant fruit but it comes across super fresh, not jammy. There is also the faintest whiff of pyrazines. On the palate, the wine is dry, medium bodied and confirming the complex fruit set and non-fruit characteristics. Medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. Such a fresh, youthful and gorgeous wine. For those that are wondering, Laurel is aged in a combination of neutral oak, concrete egg and amphora.

Sabaté i Coca Corpinnat Brut Nature Macabeo Xarello 2017

Vintage 2014 | Handpicked Macabeu and Xarel-lo, 65 months sur lattes. This Corpinnat is very refined with impressions of yeast in smell, minerality, razorsharp. Taste with lovely high acidity. Just beneath the price of Champagne but easily equal in quality. A small producer to look for. Good value. | paired with scrambled eggs at breakfast — 3 days ago
