FERRER BOBET

28 April 2010 News

The latest Wine Advocate has some killer scores for the 2006 Ferrer Bobet wines. This is only the second vintage for this incredible winery, and confirms that Sergi Ferrer-Salat and Raül Bobet are conjuring magic from the old vines in Priorat.

Ferrer Bobet Priorat 2006
“The fruit for the 2006 Ferrer Bobet was sourced from 100-year-old Garnacha and Carinena which account for 88% of the blend, the balance being Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of slate/mineral, scorched earth, lavender and roasted black fruits lead to a dense, rich, full-bodied wine with well-concealed ripe tannins. It will continue to open with another 2-3 years of cellaring and will offer prime drinking from 2013 to 2021.” 92 Wine Advocate

Ferrer-Bobet Selecció Especial 2006
The 2006 Ferrer Bobet Selecció Especial is 85% Carinena, 10% Garnacha, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 15 months in new French oak. It reveals a brooding bouquet of mineral, crushed stone, lavender, incense, and black fruit compote. Powerful on the palate, it will mellow a bit with another 2-3 years of cellaring and drink well through 2021. 94 Wine Advocate
