Álvaro Palacios, Aubaguetes 2018

Álvaro Palacios, Aubaguetes, Gran Vinya Classificada 2020

RRP £570 (three bottles, in bond) or from £290 (2018)

Gorgeous, violet-perfumed nose. The palate is savoury and concentrated, with dancing acidity tingling on the tongue and checked by ripe tannins. The juice absolutely flows and informs the wine, which is restrained and dry, with dark cherry, damson, mineral and some herbal notes. Pure, utterly classic and of its place.
