Passion for Spanish wine



L’Ermita 2012 Tinto

Álvaro Palacios, Priorat

It’s been a long time since I last tasted L’Ermita but I finally had a chance at Espai Priorat. Despite having been decanted, it was rather closed even if it showed an array of aromas: aniseed, liquorice, red and black crisp fruit. Concentration and minerality are very present on the palate. It needs cellaring time to shine but it has the traits of a great wine; it shows at its best once it's been swallowed. It currenty costs over 1,000 € in Spain 18.5 points
